Sarah began her heart-wrenching post by saying, “Happy Due Date, my sweet angel. Today is not a day that I could have prepared for. But my perfect son, through the sorrow and unbearable grief, you have given me a gift that words will not suffice. It is with my wisest knowing that our souls had a contract to fulfill with each other, and this is exactly the way it was supposed to be for us.”

She continued, “You needed parents who could hold this short life for you; safely and honorably. You chose me, not in spite of karma, but because of it. This wasn’t our first life together, and it surely will not be our last. Your clever spirit had a message to be shared and this was your chance to have it heard ‘round the world.”

We come into this world delicate, and leave just the same. I had to witness such courage and vulnerability to understand it.”

  1. Sarah,

    I am so sorry for your loss. I also felt a personal connection with you from the first day you were on The Bachelorette. I too am an amputee, I am older than you. It has been hard being back in the dating World. I saw that when you were on the Show. I felt your pain because I have been rejected because of my hand also. I do believe God puts people in our lives for a reason. I pray I am not alone for the rest of my life. My marriage ended up being to an abusive and cheating husband.

    I pray that you will have a healthy baby to love.
