My Baby Girl, My Shannon

Author: Anonymous
Baby Name: Shannon Victoria
Birth Date: 14-01-2001

My darling daughter. The little girl I so longed to hold and have in my life. The dreams I held for you since I was only 7 years old. I knew you were a girl. I just knew in my heart. And I knew your name, Shannon. Not a day goes by I haven’t thought of you or missed you. I wish I had the bravery in me to stand up to everyone and say I was keeping you. I will never let anyone tell me what I should do ever again. I knew in my heart giving you up was the wrong choice. I never knew however how deep and painful that void of missing you would be, of how it would stay with me every single day (you would have been sweet 16 next month) I never got to meet you, yet I miss you terribly. I wish I could go back in time and scream at myself not to make the wrong choice. I love you so so very much. No one knows the grief I hold in but me. I can’t share it with anyone. I hope I get to meet you one day, and say how truly sorry I am. I wish I could have had you in my life. I’m so very sorry. With all my love, Mummy xxxxxxxxxxx
