We See Her

2 Years.

It’s been two years since Elena was born & died.

Sometimes it feels like it was yesterday and other times it seems like a different life. One that never really happened but unmistakably did.

So much has changed in the last 2 years.

One thing that hasn’t changed is that she is always with us.

We see her in the purple rays of light surrounding Mason at the park

    This my first time visiting. I was so surprised to see your daughter you lossed was named Elena. It’s not a common name to me. I lost our 4th child,our daughter Rita at 33wks. Our little Miracle baby our fifth child is our Elena. She was born in Dec of 2012. I hate that we have gone through these losses but I love feeling comfort in the fact that other families just know.They know what we can’t explain to those we love that want to help. I hate that they do,but they do. Together we can move through our sadness knowing you are not alone. Loving your page so far and I will be glad to add your sweet Elena in my prayers.

      It’s not a common name at all! I had planned on naming my first daughter Elena form any years after my Mom’s friend who I adored that passed away when she was 25, her named was Helena. Ironically enough, in my 25th year I gave birth to my first daughter much to soon but we decided to still name her Elena. I felt it was fitting for our family.

      I’m so sorry for the loss of your daughter Rita. I completely understand what you mean. It really sucks that there are other families who understand this loss yet at the same time it’s comforting to know there are people who get it.
