  1. Thank you so much for including Ada. It’s nice to see her name somewhere that *I* didn’t write it. In fact, this might be a first.

  2. please add Ella M.

    Thank you. I love seeing her name!

  3. Hello Malou Amelia’s mom!

    I read few pages of your blog even I’m exhausted tonight… I’m in Belize and I’m friend with Carrie Tengler, a good friend of you I believed. She send me the link of your website today thinking I would probably like it! Yes I do love it! I will come back soon and will follow your weekly post. You are a wonderful mom and a really strong woman. I’m also a mom of a new angel, Enzo. My baby boy passed away April 29, 2009 at 13 days old. I’m a french canadian so I live far from home like you. I also got my new job (of my dream) 2 weeks before my baby was born. I’m managing a resort on Ambergris Caye with my husband. I was so busy from day one until the last week of August with the guests and everything… didn’t have time to think either cry to much… Now, with low season, everything is catching me up… I’m in my grieving process I believe… It’s hard. It’s really hard. I’m missing him so much. He was so cute so perfect. He got a severe infection… sepsis infection or something like that they sad that day… after few hours of fighting, he left. I did some tests and, since 2 weeks, they think that it was a groupe b streptocoque infection… a very common infection on pregnant woman and the only thing is the baby needs an antibiotic immediately after birth… Medical neglect in my case… with a non-competent doctor who never did the test even I asked him why you don’t do that test in Belize??? It was not Belize the problem but him. That’s the diagnostic of 3 other doctors. Whatever, like you said, that will not bring back my little loved… and I’m stressed for another pregnancy… we plan to try again… in 1 or 2 months (it was recommended to wait 6 months). You will help me a lot with your blog… Thank you so much!!!!!!!!!
    Sorry for my English mistake, I’m just learning English and I really wanted to write to you! I will be honored if you would like to add Enzo at your list of babies we love and miss. Thank you again, Isabelle
    P.S. I didn’t find your name yet but I will find it on my next visit! I believed Carrie told me Stephanie… sorry, Im not sure, I’m still scatterbrain!

  4. Dear Isabelle,

    I’m so sorry about your little boy. Thank you for telling me about him.

    Yes, Carrie’s one of my good friends. We had a wonderful visit to A.C. last December and I had a lot of good memories from living there. You can always email me if you want to talk about Enzo. I find it really helpful to talk-talk-talk about Malou Amelia and, although I know not everyone is the same, if you also want to talk about your Enzo, I am happy to listen.

    Take care.

  5. Hi Stephanie,

    I love the letter you wrote to Malou Amelia, both are beautiful names. I am actually wrinting a letter to my baby Ines and building the blog that will honor her. Baby Ines was born on January 2nd, 2010 and died one hour after. I am deeply grieving the loss of Ines and the thousend dreams I built around her existance.

    Please add her name: Ines

  6. Dear Mariana,

    I am so very sorry to hear that your darling baby Ines died. I know exactly what you mean when you say you are grieving both the loss of her and the thousand dreams you built. That is one of the hardest thing about losing a baby…it feels like your future is lost along with your child’s.

    I am happy to add Ines’s name and will remember her in my thoughts and prayers, as well as the other (way too many) babies.


  7. Stephanie, thank you so much for including Naveen’s name in this list. It means so much to me. I wanted to tell you how beautiful Malou’s video is. I wept throughout the whole thing – your incredibly deep and unabiding love for your daughter shines through in each image and everything you create and write. Thank you for sharing your love for her with us.
    Take care,
    Stacey (CT)

  8. Hi,

    I am living in Germany and found the link for your website on German site for parents who have lost their child.
    I cried so many tears for your little baby girl. All those words you managed to write down…I wish I could find them too.
    I am still grieving the loss of my daughter Larissa. She died very early in my womb. But still she was my baby girl and although everybody tells me, I should be happy to have two children, I really miss my first child. It is hard to describe and sometimes I think I am not allowed to feel the way I feel… To loose a baby because it is born still must be so much harder.

    I held her in my hands…she is my baby and I miss her so much.
    Could you please add her name to your list? There is no grave I could go to…

    Thank you.
    Sorry for my language. English is not my mother tounge.


  9. Oh, Sandrine, of course I would be honored to add your beloved daughter Larissa to this page, but I am so sorry I have to. I, too, wish she were here with you. I hope, no matter what others may tell you, that you allow yourself to grieve your tremendous loss. There is no shame in loving (and missing) your daughter – in loving ALL your children just the same. In fact, it is beautiful and shows what a wonderful mother you are.
    By the way, I think Larissa is a beautiful name – and not very common! The only one I know is a beautiful, sensitive person – who painted this for me (click here). Now when I look at this painting, I can remember your daughter too.

  10. Dear Stephanie,

    thank you for adding Larissa’s name to your list. It is nice to see it written down. Since she died very early, people around me tend to ignore her existance…which makes me quite angry and also very sad. I find it quite difficult to find the right words to explain my feelings to others. She is and always will be a part of me…
    The painting is just wonderful- what a nice and sensitive person the painter seems to be.
    It’s a wonderful way to remember your sweet little girl.
