In Memory Of Lost Angels Through Baby Loss

This week we remember babies born asleep, or whom we have carried but never met, those we have held but could not take home, the ones who made it home but didn’t stay. Make this your profile status if you or someone you know has suffered the loss of a baby. The majority of you won’t do it, because unlike cancer, baby loss is still a taboo subject. Break the silence.I am breaking my silence in memory of an Angel named Matthew, that was born too prematurely at 20 weeks! It was a most horrific time for me and my hubby, as we had been experiencing an unimaginable amount of stress during the entire pregnancy. My Mother had just been diagnosed with brain cancer and admitted into the hospital at the exact time I had my pregnancy confirmed. I was traveling daily on the Go-train into Hamilton from my new promotion in Human Resources department from Toronto, and at the time we didn’t have the techie resources that we have now.  I kept very busy trying to keep up to date replying to employee and Department Managers in long hand format!  

As my belly grew, so did my nausea, and the only thing that would alleviate,it would be saltines  and water. As you can imagine I had already named my unborn child and worried that my Mom would never have the opportunity to meet him!  Can you imagine, no Grandma, no Mother for me, no confidant for either one of us!
On Christmas Day the Doctors called and told us they had to go in again and release the pressure in my Mom’s brain, by placing drainage tubes into her stomache! Of course you can, go ahead, I’ve got nothing better to do, so there we were all hunkered down while Mom’s surgery was performed!  Five hours later, I was given a gift from an Angel, my baby KICKED me; it was AMAZING.  I thought it was indigestion, then it happened again!  Well that was the best Gift from Heaven and my Mom, that I could every have wished for. 

I continued in this mode for weeks more, back and forth to Hamilton from Toronto; climbing off the train to get into my Mom’s hospital bed for a cuddle! But she was awake for one week only, during which I was able to show her my big belly and Happy face, Mom, you and Dad are going to be grandparents! She smiled hugely and said I know… Angel told me!  I went home elated that night filled with so much HOPE and Happiness that I hadn’t felt for months; until my appointment the following Monday when the ultrasound couldn’t detect my childs heartbeat!

Within hours I was the patient, and it was just coincidence, but it was on my hubby’s birthday; that I delivered my stillborn Angel Matthew – January 15,1983.  

My Mom never met him, but I know for a fact that when she passed one month later,February 16,1983  my little Lost Angel was the first to greet his Grandmother.😇😇

In memory of all lost angels!
With Much Love,

Gail Pearce Siemko

Warm Wishes – Donald E. Pearce, In Memory of Dad who passed March 27,2014

Although it’s been two years since my Father has left me pyschically, my memories of him will never leave me.  He was a very loving man with many characteristics that I believe he has passed on to me; and a result of these positive impressions I have passed on to my sons.  My Father woke early and ensured we all followed suit, if we didn’t right away, out came the pots and pans banging loudly, “It’s time to get up, it’s time to get up, it’s time to get up in the morning!”  If that didn’t immediately get a response, a squirt of cold water on the head in bed……well you get the picture, that did get us all up and Adam!  
I was the youngest in my family, just like my Father is in his, and we shared many similar qualities…..besides the Blue Eyes, Blond hair, we are always Optimistic, Positivive outlook on life, Inspired by others who have done well for themselves in spite of their circumstances, laughter is essential (He would always write the Joke of the Day on each of our Special Occasions Cards…..usually not very funny haha) love is one thing that is extremely important in a relationship (Never go to bed angry) and always hug and kiss your family when you say good-bye.  This is one that I have taken one step further, I always kiss my family goodbye and say “See you later, I love you MORE”!  

Happy 31st Birthday Jonathan Devin Siemko

Even though it’s been only a year since I sat down to write a few words of Best Wishes for my First Born, so much had transpired since last July!  There were good things and non events, but mostly challenges on both of my sons behalf and mine.   I remember when Jonathan was a little boy, waiting for special occasions impatiently like any other small person, asking the same few questions repeatedly. Is he here yet? It it time yet? Can we go now? With his little brother racing right up behind him looking up to me with the same big blue eyes, well Mommy can we can?

Those days are not far behind us, and as we are all leisurely preparing to go out, for the Birthday Boy’s Dinner at his favourite Italian restaurant Pasquale’s here in Oakville, the same excitement was in the air. Especially knowing that Jonathan’s best friend Ryan Martin From primary school was attending with us!

In our family I have always carried the tradition down, that Birthdays ARE Meant to be CELEBRATED, as you never know when the last one may be. My Mom and Dad had streamers and balloons decorated throughout the house before I woke on the morning of my Birthday. The entire family would waken you to a loud HAPPY BIRTHDAY SONG and if you were really lucky you could open your one gift before school!

In the Siemko residence, we always had streamers and balloons and the Birthday Song, but always you were allowed one gift before school and your card. The card is the most important part, as that is where the words of feelings and love come from? Perhaps that why I’ve kept all of his cards over the past Three decades for my sons Jonathan and Addison, so they may go back and remember how exciting certain occasions can be whether everyone is in attendance physically, emotionally, or spiritually?

We still celebrate even though things happen in our lives good or bad , because we can!

I am so PROUD to call you my son, Jonathan Devin Siemko, and want you to know that in life there are hills and valleys, but you must always still WALK THE WALK!!

With much Love and Affection, Mom
