Our darling son, Akul, was born on February 13, 2009 after 35 exciting weeks of pregnancy. I enjoyed every minute of my days with Akul. Life without him is colorless, an everlasting gray day, but I thank God for giving me a child to love, eventhough it was for a short time. He lived in my womb for about eight months and in my arms for 2 days, and passed away on February 16, 2009. He spent his short life partly in the NICU of Children's hospital and partly with his mom and dad in a nursing home room. I was not able to share my perfect baby with anyone. No one oohed and aahed over him, no one had the opportunity to know him and resultantly no one remembers him. However, he came into this world and changed forever the two people who love him more than they love anyone or anything else - his mom and dad. He took us to others who have the misfortune of walking in our shoes and made us realize how meaningless life without a child is.


  1. We'll make sure he is remembered! I have added your blog to the DBC blog directory and I have added Akul to our calendar! I am so sorry that your son left you so soon. Sending you so many hugs.

  2. I wanted to thank you for your lovely comment on my blog.

    Thank you for sharing your sweet Akul with us. He's so, so beautiful. I've been sitting here weeping as I've read your story.

    I'll be remembering him and following your journey.

    Love Jess
