Matthew Aaron is the identical brother of Jacob.
On April 29, 1992, the eighth month of my pregnancy,
I learned from my doctor during an ultrasound that one of my babies had died.
This was due to a compromise in his umbilical cord.
Matthew was delivered June 9th just three minutes after Jacob.
Matthew's life within me and his death have brought me many tears
but also many blessings.
Through Matthew I have met some tremendous people.
People who I would have never crossed paths with without that loss.
People who have added a richness to my life that is immeasurable.
December 2, 1991 the day I found out I was having twins. I was 11 weeks.
Why did you sigh when I held your hand, it made you unhappy I can't understand?
When I gave you a hug, you held me so long. I'm not too young to know something is wrong.
Why do you watch me when I run to play? No one else ever smiles at me that way.
Why did you cry when I told you my name?"
Because I had a little boy, his name was the same.
I never will walk and have his hand to hold. His arms around my neck I will never know.
I will never see him on bright sunny days, running outside eager to play"
My baby died before he was born. Taken to heaven in Jesus' loving arms.
Forever there my baby will be. And the love in my heart will echo eternally.
But don't worry your little heart over my tears. I was just enjoying my Matthew while watching you play here.
