there's not much of a memory but the only memory is the day i went into labor with my precious baby I was 16 yrs old was at school marsh fork high school and I started hurting really bad so I called my boyfriend (Frankie)to come and get me he did and we went straight to Raleigh general hospital and when I got there I was in premature labor they tried for 3 days to stop my labor but it just kept getting worse so  I ended up having my precious baby and after along labor she was finally here with me and his daddy(Frankie) but then they swept my baby boy away before I could even see him or touch him me being only 16 yrs old at the time was scared to death then bout 45 mins or so a dr came in and broke the devasting news that my baby wasn't going to live so they got me in a wheelchair and took me to see my baby and it was the most heartbreaking thing I've ever seen they had him hooked up to all these machines I didn't even get to hold my baby but I can remember this like it happened yesterday I reached up with my finger and rubbed his lil foot and when I did that he pulled his lil foot back like I had tickled him and his dad (Frankie) said to me that he knows his mommy is here with him I sometimes do wonder if he really did know I was there with him then I started to realize that my baby was going to die and I started to lose it so they took me back to my room and put me to sleep but when my precious baby passed away he was was in his daddy's (Frankie's) strong arms holding him tight til he passed away so my baby wasn't alone when he went to heaven but the day  I had my baby was on 5-9-91 and that day was Mother's Day and since then Mother's Day hasn't  not been on that day again  but I named my lil angel Mark Anthony pettry-Cantley there's no worse feeling in this world then having to leave a hospital after giving birth and having to go home with my arms empty and at 16 having to plan a funeral for my lil baby before his lil life even got to start  so every yr I still celebrate my lil Angels birthday it's a hard day for me  I miss my baby everyday every min and every sec  I think of him everyday I just hope he knows How much myself and his daddy wanted him and how much we loved him. The only ppl that can relate to how I feel everyday with this emptiness abd sadness everyday is the ppl that actually has been through it themselves and there is a few I know that truly does know this heartbreak
