In Loving Memory of
Lily Hope O'Brien
Born to Heaven on March 20, 2003

Lily, our sweet Lily

You are our Angel,
Sent to us from above.
The time you were here,
How can we not love?

We long to hold you in our arms,
But for now we will have to hold you in our hearts.
Giving you life was our hope and our dream,
But on this Earth you had to part.
From the moment we saw you and held you tight,
You were so tiny in our hand.
Looking at you made us realize,
Our love for you was grand.

You are our precious daughter,
Forever you will be.
Loving you will never cease,
Lily, our sweet Lily.
Love from Mommy

"Lord, I wanted to hold my little girl on my lap
and tell her about you.
But since I never had that chance,
will you please hold her on your lap
and tell her about me?"

Lily Hope's Story

In Dec. I got pregnant with Lily and we were so excited.............I had some bleeding at 7.5 weeks and thought we m/c again. Saw the doc and he did an U/S and I saw my baby perfect as can be......he did notice that the placenta had pulled away from the wall, but he didn't seem that concerned. At 13 weeks everything seemed to be going well, baby was growing, heart was beating etc. I went to see him 4 weeks later (Mar. 19th) and he went to find the heartbeat with the doppler and couldn't so he used his U/S and that's when he told me the bad baby had passed. He told me that he was going to induce me the next day, as I was too far along to have a D&C. I delivered Lily Hope on Mar. 20th at 6:42 pm. I was 17 weeks along. We got to hold Lily Hope and we also took pictures of her. She was so beautiful. They found out that nothing was wrong with Lily, she was a perfect baby.

These are two beautiful and loving gifts for Angel Lily from my dear friend, Carol, mom to Angel Michael.

This special gift for Angel Lily is from my friend Marie.

Silent Footprints

We never had the chance to play, to laugh, to rock, to wiggle.
We long to hold you, touch you now and listen to giggles.

I will always be your mother. He'll always be your dad.
You will always be our child.........the child we never had.

But now you're gone.........but yet you're here. We sense you.

You are our sorrow and our joy. There's love in every tear.

Just know, our love goes deep and strong, we'll forget you never.
The child we had, but never had, and yet will have forever.

I'll Hold You In Heaven

From the very beginning I loved you,
As I made plans to hold you and rock you;
You were tiny and helpless as you lay in my womb,
But something went wrong and soon you were gone;
My young heart was broken, my tears fell like rain,
I'd never known such heartache and pain.

I wonder who you look like, me or your dad,
Do you have my smile and his eyes?
Would you have been big and tall or tiny and small?
We had dreams for you that reached to the skies.
It wasn't that long ago, but still I miss you so,
Thanks to Jesus, I will see you in heaven.

I'll hold you in heaven someday.
When my trials on earth pass away;
The angels have rocked you, the Father watches over
I know you're waiting for me;
I can't hold you and look into your eyes,
But I'll hold you in heaven someday.

When You Choose an Angel,
To pass our earthly Way,
Even For That Moment, On That Special Day.
A Twinkle in the Stars Above,
A Special Feeling We Call Love.

Thank You God, For Being There,
The Pain Right Now I Cannot Bear,
But I believe you’ll Help Me Cope,
Cause for That Moment, You Gave Me Lily Hope.

Please Do Not Be Angry,
Cause I Do Not Agree,
Of How You Went About It,
But You Set My Lily Free.

And One Day I Will Understand,
The choice You Made That Day,
We'll Meet Again I Heaven,
Love Hammie

Love is what brought you here,
Inspiring us and;
Leaving a mark in our lives making,
You are our angel forever.

Helping us to see by
Opening up our hearts and
Praying that we know that
Everything is alright.

Obviously you were sent to
Bring our hearts together
Reminding us that love;
Is made from within.
Enhancing our love that will
Never ever end.

The poem and the tags below are gifts from my dear friend Pammi.

For a brief and fleeting moment,
An angel touched the ground;
With tiny wings and halo,
And sweet, soft angel sounds.

Blessing the lives of others,
In beauty and in grace;
Those who saw her knew that God
Had kissed her tiny face.

The angel came for reasons,
We may not understand;
Her journey brief, with gifts so great,
And guided by God's hand.

For the angel left so much behind,
Left nothing here undone;
She gave herself so others live,
Just like her Father's Son.

So, rest now tiny angel,
Your work on earth is through;
In the beauty of God's perfect love,
We saw His gift in you.
