I Should Have Been More Courageous

Author: Anonymous

Baby Gallagher. I never had you long enough to know your sex or your name. I regret everything I did and if I had to do it over again I would do things differently even though it would have been difficult. Knowing you would have been a joy. I was weak and a coward. I will always remember you and feel the loss and shame for what I did to you. I am sorry for the pain I caused you because of my cowardice. I pray that one day we will meet in heaven and I will embrace you like I should have done on this earth. I could blame your father for your death but ultimately I made the decision. It was wrong of me. I will answer to God for what I did to you but I know that when I destroyed your tiny body your soul flew back to Heaven and that gives me comfort because you are in the arms of our Loving Father. Forgive me.
