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

I 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 loves you angel. I find your pennies daily, and your thought never leaves my mind. 

I am not the only one 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

Ten years old. Ten years and you have not been forgotten for one day since you went to be with all the other angel babies with our Lord in Heaven. You would be so proud of your Mom and your brothers. Your Mom sees you in everything she does. She has become an amazing person. You made her life turn around in the time she had with you. Your brothers are growing so tall and handsome. Mems and Pawpaw aare just biding their time now until they get to hold you. We all love you and will never forget you baby girl.

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

Keep those pennies coming!

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.

This is your Grandma baby girl! I'm still singing your special song and waiting to hold you! Keep an ear out for me in Heaven and keep visiting me in my dreams! I love and miss you everyday!

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!

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.

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

9 years now sweetheart and we still think of you and love you
her Life

Happy 11th Birthday

Happy birthday! As time goes on I love this day more and more. The most beautiful things were born on this day. The first of course is my daughter. The rest are the opportunities to sit with others through their worst nightmare because I know exactly what they are going through. 

It’s a double edged sword, a blessing that took many years to bear fruit. 
Romans 8:28

And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.
All these years I knew there was a purpose. I didn’t know exactly how or what or when or any of the details. Until one day people started reaching out to me sharing about their sweet babies gone too soon. Then people that knew people that had lost their precious child would come to me for guidance to help their loved ones. Then, the church, God himself, opened up the perfect ministry right here in Beaufort. 

I can’t believe it’s been 11 years in the making. I can’t believe my tragedy and my heartache feels like a blessing today. My emotions tend to be all over the place on this day, but specifically today I feel overwhelmed with joy that I can just be love to someone else that is hurting too. 

Alexis, I love you. I thank God every day for you. You are a beautiful reminder of God’s promises!

Pennies From Heaven

Shared by Anna Bynum on March 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 devastated and hated so much for her to go through the pain. If there were anyway on the Earth to take the pain away from her and keep it to myself and away from her I would gladly do that.

We decided that every penny we found from that day forward would be Alexis letting us know that she was with us and watching over us. There are so many days that we find pennies, some shiny bright like Heavens stars and some old and dark like the Earth we live on. No matter the color or where we find them we think of our precious Alexis and know she has not forgotten us and asking us to please remember and love her. We do sweetheart, we do!
