Luke's Backstory

In loving memory of 
Luke Charles Stemp
"My heart, body, soul, knew it was ready for you to be born. With arms wide open forever longing to hold you. It was not ready to let you fly forever high. But for some reason, you were needed elsewhere. You were a sparkle in my eye. Now you’re a sparkle in the sky. Where you will fly forever more, My Beautiful Child”

1st December 2019 at 4 o’clock in the morning, I woke up with some discomfort. Thinking I was going through my Braxton Hicks, it did not cross my mind “labour pains”. An hour passed, the pain didn’t wear off, but hadn’t got worse either. I continued to be in discomfort with barely any pain but I had a gut feeling that something was wrong.

5:00 AM came where I knew something was horribly wrong but still hadn’t crossed my mind ‘labour’ ‘you being born’ ‘you making your appearance’. I just thought I needed the toilet but to our acknowledgement now, my waters had in fact broken and I had the urge to push. At 5.35 AM you were in my arms, born sleeping at 25 weeks + 2 days, from that day on my heart fell apart and knew that there is forever going to be a missing piece to our family. 
We plan to tell your story forever more, for as long as we are apart. You will never be forgotten our forever baby boy Luke Charles Stemp, you grew your angel wings way too early. But as they grow, you will grow and the more time passes your story will grow. We forever love you our Winter Bear 1-12-2019, until we meet again you will be in our hearts.
