Our angel, Alexis, grew her wings March 25, 2009.  She was our first baby, and God had a mission already set for her.

We found out at 18 weeks gestation that Alexis had Turner's Syndrome. Her chances of making it full-term was nearly impossible, but there was still a chance. We all held on to our hope, but a month later after weekly ultrasounds there was no heartbeat. There is no way to prepare for losing your first child.  To watch her kick and play weekly inside your tummy and then to see her laying there, no life, no nothing- it's crippling as a first-time parent.

Mommy and Daddy love you angel. We find your pennies daily, and your thought never leaves our minds. 

We are not the only ones suffering from the loss of a child. I hope our little story will be some comfort to the families out there looking for support. Feel free to email me- Trysta@live.com

"You have been in God's Nursery for 7 years now yet it seems like yesterday. I know you are safe and happy there. The days will not be many before I hope to be with you there. I have so much to bring to you. Stories of your Mom and Dad, your two brothers, your Grandmother, Aunts and Uncles, cousins and your Mems and Pawpaw.
You would be so proud of your Mom and Dad. They have grown so much together. Your two brothers know of you and miss and love their sister too. This is the hard part of the year for them and I know you would not want that. Maybe we can find a way to turn it into a celebration of your time in Heaven.
It will feel so good to hold you close to me the way I did your Mom when she was a little girl. I would like for you and I to  look for Cassie and Eddie. Two more of my babies in God's nursery. I would love to hold them too.
We know by the pennies you send us very often that you remember us too and are looking out for us.
We will never forget you and we will always love and miss you as long as we live. You were to be special to us in life and you are just as special to us in passing. Your gift to us will last for eternity.
Happy Birthday sweet baby girl."

"Sleep baby Alexis
Safe in God's arms
Taken away
From all life's harm

You put up a Fight
You pulled our heart strings
Now you are in heaven
Trying out your new baby wings

You are a sweet baby angel
From heaven above
Sent to this earth
To teach us how to love

Your life on this earth
Seemed but a minute
Life seems empty now
Without you in it

We want you to know
From all left behind
Our love for you will go on
Until the end of time

Happy 6th Birthday to one of God's special Angels

We love you, miss you and think of you  all the time.
Keep those pennies coming!"

"Hey baby girl! It's been 5 years now. It's crazy to think it has been that long. You are one of the best things that has ever been in my life. You and your brothers have taught me more about myself that the average person could think possible. I will forever be grateful for your short physical presence on the earth and your everlasting love the lives in my heart.  
Today we told jaxen about you. He is so excited to have a sister that is an angel. He picked out orange dreamcicle cupcakes that we shared with a dear friend. Then we picked out a red and pink heart ballon. We wrote you some beautiful messages and let them go tonight. It was very healing. Letting go of a balloon is symbolic to letting go of the pain. Enjoy heaven for us! :) we love you!"

"Five years ago today and we still miss you. I know you would be a  little clone of your Mom. I remember her so well when she was 5 and eating fresh "maters" out of the garden. In my minds eye I can imagine you. I never got to hold you but that makes no difference in the love I hold for you my precious angel baby."

"Pennies From Heaven

Shared by Anna Bynum on 03/25/2012

We were excited for Trysta when she told us she was having a baby. Very excited when she told us the name she had picked out. We were heartbroken for her, Nate, Nates family, and our family when she told us about the Turner Syndrome.
Our precious Great Granddaughter was born an Angel in God's nursery in Heaven. We knew our Trysta was deva"

"Trysta is my Daughter, my first child and I cannot imagine the pain my first child endured with my first grandchild's passing. It is hard to watch your daughter suffer such a loss and not be able to take the pain from her.loosing my precious Grandchild was heartbreaking for me, because I know she was an angel, just like her mother has been for me. I understand why God chose to keep her."
