I hope to heaven that Rose got some help to live with her depression! That was tough to read and so damn sad! It is so wrong for babies to die, no matter the reason.

Oh my God I've tears in my eyes and the whole time while reading I kept swallowing and felt a huge lump of sorrow in my stomach. Don't get me wrong I love Emmett and Rosalie but in this case it would have been best if he let her go she's suffering too much! I would love to see a follow up to this piece.

Oh, this just broke my heart. I can't imagine being so lost in a hole of grief that there are no ladders back out. I just want to cuddle Rose and stroke her hair until she finds some hope again. Thank you for writing such a touching, heartfelt story.

This was the Best stroy i have ever read. i have said that on a few stories but now i can say it and remember the story i called the best. It is THE BEST! it was sad, hearst-breaking, touching, tear-worthy, sob-worthy and it made me finally know what it feels like to have a lump in your throat. i am so sorry for your families loss and im so glade that your parents made it through the pain. while i was reading this i was listenin to my ipod and irronically a song i forgot about came on the moment i read the part where it says her wings were spread and it fit the story so well i put it on repeat. Tears of an Angel by RyanDan is the name of it and i will recommend this story to everyone i know who need to learn to be open with people and to anyone just because it is touching.

Beautiful story. You have captured the all encompassing echoing pain of child loss so well. The desire to be with your heart and leave this excruciating world behind. After I miscarried and was told I could only conceive through IVF I wanted to stop loving. The knowledge of what that would do to my loved ones kept me here, but living as a shadow, crying everyday for months. Eventually I made a compromise with myself, although I could not imagine never being happy again, I could imagine that one day I would laugh, and that was to be enough. After 7 years of darkness and pulling myself through steps toward trying IVF, I as a single woman made the attempt and now have 11 year old twin boys. The years since have been so filled with joy I cannot express. My plan was for foster-adoption if the IVF hadn't worked. One way or another I HAD to be a mother.

My dear, dear friend, how you've made me cry. First, your opening notes explaining what happened in your life was so moving to me, making me wish I could hug you in RL even more. Upon reading this story again, I really don't have hope for Rose, even though I've gone looking for any glimmers of it. That truly adds to my love of this story because that sense of doom contributes to my deeper feelings for her, making this a story I'll never forget. I'm very glad to know that you all not only survived, but also thrived despite Janet's loss. I can't even imagine what that must've been like. Ugh.

*hugs you so hard*

I love you, my dear friend. I'm so blessed to have gotten to know you and I'm grateful for your friendship.

Wow. That was absolutely heartbreaking. You wrote that so incredibly well. I happened to wake up super early this morning, so I figured I would take the opportunity to read a bit. So, now, it's 6 AM and I'm crying like a baby while everyone else is asleep. So, thank you for a good cry! :) Again, great job!

Very powerful and moving. I can't say that I know how it feels to lose a child BUT as a mother I can imagine it. You have written this so tragically beautiful, I could honestly feel the emotions. Is this a one shot?
