For Amanda Joy
By Stephanie Marottek

I'm only 25
I'm not supposed to
have a dead baby!
I'm healthy
I did everything right
but still my daughter died.
This is something
that happens to people
we don't know.
To bad people.
But we are good.
We don't deserve this!
I just can't understand
I can't see the logic
I felt so ready
I wanted her so much!
What is wrong with me?
I can't focus
I feel hazy and tired
but can't sleep......
I just want my baby!

To our daughter, Amanda Joy
We'll Hold Her In Heaven
Beloved daughter of Chuck and Stephanie
Little sister of Charlie
We know we will see you again someday,
until that day.....we miss you.

Jeremiah 29:11-
"For I know the plans I have for you , declares the
Lord, Plans to prosper you and not to harm you,
plans to give you HOPE and a future!"
