Since Ellie's Angelversary is this week, I'm going to skip Day 17 and do that on weds/ thurs...
Day 18: Family Photo
I am positive that unless you have lost a child, you have no idea how painful a family picture is. It is a reminder of what will never be and what is missing. No matter how the child is represented in the picture- it is not the same. It kills me to know that this is the closest thing I have to a picture of all of my kids-
Because lets be honest- this is a picture of three living kids and a headstone. A headstone that marks the place where a casket containing my daughter's body lies. Its messed up. And I hate it.
Addy and Levi will never have a picture with their sister. I will never have a picture with my husband and ALL my children. This is as close as it will ever get-
And that sucks.
