Dear Mr. and Mrs. Dixon,

My heart goes out to you and your husband. My husband and I know what you are going through. We lost our 4th child, Memphis, to stillbirth. He was going to be a little brother that our other 3 children were waiting for so long. He was born at 36 weeks and weighed 3lbs. 1oz. We had a wonderful nurse who took pictures for us and I am sorry you and your husband never got to have that. I am also very sorry that neither one of you got to hold your little angel. You and your husband is in our thoughts and prayers.

Sincerely,
Candi Schroeder Lima, Ohio, USA

Your web site is beautiful! I sat and cried as I explored the page. I can understand your grief, my husband and I gave birth to our first baby on March 17, 2004 and she was stillborn. Lauren Ashley was her name and she was beautiful. I was 36 weeks pregnant. I have found comfort in your web page. The poem's and sayings are exceptional. I have used several of them in Lauren's scrapbook. The links you provide are helpful. Thank you for all your hard work ~ I know it must have been healing for you but you are also providing help for others.

My thoughts and prayers are with you as you continue on in life.

Dear Vicky & Magnus,

I was on Thomas's site again today and I thought I would leave a message. We have started a website for Memphis and I thought maybe you would like to visit. I am going to leave his web address at the bottom of this and maybe other grieving parents will know that they are not alone. Memphis has only been gone for 2 weeks and 1 day and I already feel stronger and better since we started his website. Please e-mail me anytime that you would like to talk or even if you need a shoulder to cry on.

You are in our thoughts and prayers always.

Lots of Love and Angel Hugs,

Candi Schroeder

Oh how I wish baby Thomas Dixon were here with you today.... I am so sorry that he was stillborn with no answers as to why. My heart goes out to you and your husband, as I know from experience that this has not been an easy journey so far.

My son Chandler died at birth due to Anencephaly on 12/18/96. There is no greater love then the love a mother has for her children. May Thomas's spirit continue to soar within and around you always.

As it is still new to you I would be more than willing to talk with you as it has been 28 months since my son was born still. As I have learned, the best way to get through a tough time like this is to be around and talk to others who know what it is like.

My prayers are with you and may our boys play in heaven.

Much love and understanding

Below I have sent you a copy of a poem I wrote on a memorial sight for my son honoredbabies.org a sight which may help you also.

Daddy Daddy
don't cry for me
I'm right here
Don't you see.
The way you walk
The way you smile
It all portrays,
What I would be
Daddy
don't cry for me
I'm right here
Don't you see.
Look in the mirror
Isn't that me?
Dark brown hair
Big blue eyes
That's what you
gave to me
Daddy
don't cry for me
I'm happy here
No pain
No sorrow
I'll watch over you
With every tomorrow
Daddy please,
Don't be blue
For I will always Be
a part of you

Vicky,

Sometimes, while reading poems on the net, you and your husband come to mind. While going through everything in my baby book, I found something I haven’t seen for a long time, since I was nine years old. A friend of mine, who was also nine passed away, I just found his card from his funeral. I’m not sure if you've heard this poem before, but I thought of you when I read it over again. I thought you may like to post it for Thomas...

~ I'll Lend You My Child ~


"I'll lend you for a little time
a child of mine"
, He said ...
"For you to love the while he lives ...
and mourn for when he's dead.

It may be six or seven years,
or twenty-two and three,
But will you, till I call him back,
take care of him for me?

He'll bring his charms to gladden you.
And shall his stay be brief,
You'll have his lovely memories
as solace for your grief.

I cannot promise he will stay,
since all from Earth return.
But there are lessons, taught down there,
I want this child to learn.

I've looked the wide world over
in search for teachers true,
And from the throngs that crowd life's lanes,
I have selected you.

Now, will you give him all your love,
nor think the labor in vain?
Nor hate me when I come to call
to take him back again?

I fancied that I heard you say ...
Dear Lord, it will be done!
For all the joy Your Child shall bring,
the risk of grief we'll run.

We'll shelter him with tenderness.
We'll love him while we may,
And for the happiness we've known
forever grateful stay.

But shall the angels call for him
much sooner than we've planned,
We'll brave the bitter grief that comes
and try to understand.

Dear Mr. and Mrs. Dixon,

Thank you for your site. Our Jordan was born to heaven two years ago, when I was two months along. Walk in Grace and find the moments of shining peace when you can. Your site heals hearts and allows for the memories and allows us all to shed tears for our children.

Thank you too for sharing your dream on your site - many parents dream of their children and find solace in it, but are unable to share the dream with others. I once woke to the sound of jammied footsteps in my room, and barely woke to see my child lightly touch the cradle where he would have slept. It gave me such peace - your dream surely did the same.

Be strong, be weak, and feel it all for it is evidence that Thomas touched your life.

In Grace, Caryn
