I am 36 yeras old, mother of three girls, but I always say four, for I committed an abortion when I was 23, feeling unable to cope with maternity asi it was given to me at that time. I have often lamented the death of my first baby and shared my grief with others, I have written songs and poetries to my dead baby since the first day she went to heaven, up till now, even to her sisters, I have told them they have a brother or sister in heaven that died in my womb.
In this month of august 2013, one night, I couldnt sleep, I was praying and, although I know God has forgiven me, crying thinking that my whole life, my marriage and everything I have now is this way because that baby died. I was feeling so miserable, so sad.
Then I saw an angel, very happy, flying above me. It was small, it was a girl, she was radiant with hapiness and love. She said; Mum I am fine, I am with God, here in heaven there is no pain, no suffering, so dont suffer for me. She said; thank you, mum, for always remembering me, it makes me so happy to know you always love me. Be happy, for ever, I love you too.
