Hi my name is Traci and I just Read your story of your precious daughter Vanessa a beautiful little girl now a beautiful angel watching over you in the heavens above, I also know the pain and heartache of loosing a precious child, I lost my baby girl Vanessa Faith Barnai in June 2006, and my story is quite similar 2 urs, everything was fine but after an ultrasound my world came shattering down all around me, I was told my daughter had many birth defects ,facial, cyst on the brain and the left side of her heart had not devolped, I gave birth 2 my sleeping daughter at 6months of my pregnancy and since that day my heart aches like never before I never thought or imagined this could happen 2 such an innocent child, a child that we longed 4 and took us 3 years 2 conceive, we have never found out what caused my daughters birth defects they ran all sorts of tests and everything came back nonconclusive or I am left here with a broken heart and trying 2 understand why? I want more children but I am so afraid of the outcome!! I pray that our precious girls know how much we truley love and miss them and how we wish they were here but my vanessa will live on threw me in my heart 4ever as I am sure ur  Vanessa stays with u there 2,
I do hope and pray that our hearts may find some peace and

Hello. I do not know you or your family. However, I gave birth to a wonderful baby girl in March of 2002. I was 19 years old. My daughter passed away when she was 4 days old. My heart goes out to your family and especially to the mother of this precious angel girl. I know, too, how hard it is to be so young when you have to go through such a hard thing. Though it never matters how old you are or hold old your child is, it hurts all the same. But I can empathize with your pain at that age. Close

Fly, fly, little wing....  / Mommy (MOM)  Read >>
Fly, fly, little wing....  / Mommy (MOM)

They say that time heals all wounds; but it is time that takes me further and further from you, and the precious moments that I had with you. I remember losing you like it was yesterday, but it feels like an eternity since I held you in my arms. I miss you and I love you. I think about you always. I see you in all of the beauty that surrounds me everyday. I'll ache for you for the rest of my life. 

Fly, fly little wing
Fly beyond imagining
The softest cloud, the whitest dove
Upon the wind of heaven's love
Past the planets and the stars
Leave this lonely world of ours
Escape the sorrow and the pain
And fly again

Fly, fly precious one
Your endless journey has begun
Take your gentle happiness
Far too beautiful for this
Cross over to the other shore
There is peace forevermore
But hold this memory bittersweet
Until we meet

Fly, fly do not fear
Don't waste a breath, don't shed a tear
Your heart is pure, your soul is free
Be on your way, don't wait for me
Above the universe you'll climb
On beyond the hands of time
The moon will rise, the sun will set
But I won't forget

Fly, fly little wing
Fly where only angels sing
Fly away, the time is right
Go now, find the light

Fly ~ Celine Dion

Thinking of You!  / Dianne White/Mom Of Angel Nicholas


We're alike, you and I.
We've never met
Our faces would be those of strangers if we met
We would barely perceive the other's presence
If we passed on our walk through the mists
We're unknown to each other
Until the terrible words have been spoken
We're alike, you and I
We measure time in seconds and eternities
We try to go forward to yesterday
Tomorrows are for the whole people,
And we are incomplete now
The tears after a time turn inward
To become invisible to all save you and me
Our souls are rumpled from wrestling with demons.
And doubts and unanswerable prayers.
We're alike, you and I.
The tears that run down your face are my tears
And the wound in your soul is my pain too.
We need time, but time is our enemy
For it carries us farther and farther
From our lost child
And we cry out;
We're alike, you and I.
And we need each other
Don't turn away, but give me your hand
And for a time we can cease to be strangers
And become what we truly are,
A family closer than blood.
United by a bond that was forced upon us---
But a bond that can make us stronger,
Still wounded and not to sure,
But stronger for our sorrows are shared.

Happpy Birthday baby girl  / Mommy (Mother)

Happy Birthday sweet love. I can't believe that you would have been 4 years old today. We probably would have had your party yesterday. I wonder what presents you would have asked for. 

I miss you everyday Vanessa. Your face is so clear in my mind. I remember the little noises you made when you were nursing. I remember the way I felt when you looked up at me.... like I was looking down at an angel. I love you. I miss you. 

We are connected,
My child and I,
by An invisible cord
Not seen by the eye.

It's not like the cord
That connects us 'til birth
This cord can't been seen
By any on Earth.

This cord does it's work
Right from the start.
It binds us together
Attached to my heart.

I know that it's there
Though no one can see
The invisible cord
From my child to me.

The strength of this cord
Is hard to describe.
It can't be destroyed
It can't be denied.

It's stronger than any cord
Man could create
It withstands the test
Can hold any weight.

And though you are gone,
Though you're not here with me,
The cord is still there
But no one can see.

It pulls at my heart
I am bruised...
I am sore,
But this cord is my lifeline
As never before.

I am thankful that God
Connects us this way
A mother and child
Death can't take it away!

Hi Sweetheart
Today is your 4th birthday. I wish you were here and I could hold you and play with you. Your big sister Kaelyn talks about you all the time when she comes to my house. We all miss you so much and we love you deeply. I wonder what you would look like today, I'm sure a mix of both of your sisters. You're so precious little one, I miss you and I love you. Happy 4th Birthday Vanessa. I hope you play with
angels today.  Forever Love, Aunt Linda  Close

I have come across this story by chance on the internet...Wha you wrote moved me to tears...I am so sorry at what happened to you, and yet the way you describe it is so strong. Your little girls really was an angel, and she is watching over your whole family now. I think it is important to remember every child, and it is very good that you tell and show your ther children what child she was...
I believe as well that the mothers days present was sent by her...
Bon courage we would say in French, meaning be strong... Close

You are in my prayers...  / Mélanie Blanchard

I don't know you, and you don't know me, but your story has touched me beyond everything I've ever heard or seen... My heart goes to you in so much more ways than one... You are forever in my prayers, you and your little angel...

As I read Vanessa's story on your website, tears came to my eyes and rolled down my cheeks... I can't even begin to describe how impressed I was by your little girl's strength and determination, by how she held on and defied every predictions. Her courage is an example to me and I hope that one day I can be as strong as she was... The way she fought with all her will really amazed me, and saddened me all the same because the loss of such a brave little being is really a shame... But then again, she must be one of the most perfect angels in Heaven... I have no doubt God is taking great care of her, and that she is watching over you from her special place at His side...

I am only 18 myself, but it doesn't mean I can't understand what you must've been through... I was lucky enough to never have such tragedies in my own life, but I know it happens and my heart goes to each and every last person who has to live through it... I put you and Vanessa in my prayers, and I will always remember her story. Even though I never knew her, although I wish I could have, and even though I only saw her in pictures, she taught me something very important, and I am not about to forget that...

I hope you and your family are doing well. I am sure Vanessa is always in your thoughts despite her absence, and that you will not forget her as long as you live... Let me say that learning her story was an honor, and that you've found in me another person who will remember Vanessa...

With all my best wishes and love,

I know it has almost been four years since the passing of your little angel, but i just know that it still gets to you everyday that you wake up without her.  I just want to let the whole family to know that you are in my prayers.  Vanessa is in a much better place than this twisted world, but even that don't make your loss seem any more insignificant. She and your family will always be in my heart and with my church. God Bless You!! Close

As I type this message to you and your wonderful family I am looking at a photo of my darling son who was taken away from us when he was 6 months old. He died suddenly one night from Cot Death (SIDS) and I knew when I woke up that he was gone without even looking at the cot at the end of my bed. I know how you feel when some days every single fibre of my being screams out for my child. To have him and hold him and smell his little neck. He has been gone for 11 years and it still feels sometimes like it was yesterday. The screams that I hear in my head are my own. The truth is that no one can understand what a mother feels when she loses her child. People hid thier babies from me, in a way of trying not to upset me I guess. So many strange things happened but they were all part of something greater. I still don't understand what it was all about and I still feel like there is a veil over my face and I battle to see through it some days. You are all so brave and I wanted you to know that.
