Remembering Angel

Anglel’s Mom shared her story shortly after their loss last year.  Please pray for me as they cross the first anniversary of the day they learned that they had twins and that one of them would never be in their arms.

I had my first ultrasound scheduled for Saturday, 3/18/2017 when I was 8 weeks pregnant. The tech found two babies and two yolk sacs. One had cardiac activity, the other didn’t.

They refer to this as “demise of a twin.”

At 12 weeks, all but the membrane had dissolved.

My friends try to console me by saying Rudy will always have his Angel twin protecting him. I continue to grieve the loss as I grow Rudy and started referring to his twin as either Angel Twin or just Angel.
