Angel Baby Riley Ann

This was the last time we saw our 6th Grandaughter Riley Ann Alive. She was born still on Febuary 10th, 2008.
Riley Is my youngest daughter Allisons first baby, my babys baby.
On Febuary 6th, allison went in for a routine Dr. appointment, there she was told there was`nt a heatbeat. An ultrasound confirmed that the baby had died. Our lives came crashing down around us. Allison was sent home. When she got home, her father and i went to her home, while i hugged and cried with her, i felt that baby pressing against me, and it broke my heart.
Allisons two sisters came home to be with her and share her grief, and her brother did all he could to help her. Mike, little Rileys Daddy, never left allisons side. On Febuary 10th, allison delivered little Riley, and her family was there by her side, we slept at the hospital, we cried, and we cried.
It has been several months since Rileys death, but there is`nt a day that goes by that i don`t think of Riley, of Allison and Mike. Of the little angel we won`t see grow up. Of the dreams lost, and of all the broken hearts that love her.
Riley died from a defective placenta.
We miss you angel baby, forever.

Thanks for your comment on my blog. I've been thinking of you, your daughter, and your granddaughter. I'm so glad you want to remember them this mother's day; it's so hard when no one does. I don't know if you wanted suggestions for what to do for your daughter, but you could simply buy her flowers, a card, plant a tree in your granddaughter's honor, or a rosebush. The fact that you remember - and talk about the baby - will mean so much to your daughter. Tell your daughter, from me, that it will get better, eventually. She can survive this. It will always hurt, but not always so much. Tell her to take her time to grieve, don't let anyone tell her it's time to stop. And if she wants to get in touch with me, that's fine. I'll do whatever I can to help her.
