Dear Sandra

I received a text a few days ago from a girl I care lots about. Because I don't see a reason in revealing her name, I'll call her Sandra in this post. I can't say I've known Sandra for a long time. But in the short period of time that I've known her, I've grown to love her for all her amazing qualities. No not the boyfriend-girlfriend kinda love but more like how family loves one another.

I felt her sorrow when she texted to say she lost her baby. She was almost three months pregnant when she had a miscarriage. Though the doctors didn't know the sex of the baby, her maternal instincts told her it was a girl. What are the chances of a mother being wrong? True fact, mothers are hardly wrong. Ask your mother and she'll tell you the same thing.


Sandra isn't the most healthy person on the block. She's sick quite a bit but she's got the energy of a squirrel. I know how much she loves life. She loves every damn thing about life. That includes a strong love for animals. Both wild and domestic. Anyone who treats an animal with respect and love, is a good person to me. And that's Sandra in a nutshell.

She wanted to name her daughter Sadie Rose. Wanna know what's strange? After her miscarriage, she Googled the name Sadie Rose and came across this website sadierosefoundation.org. The Sadie Rose Foundation is a non-profit organization offering support to families and individuals who have experienced the death of a child through pregnancy loss and miscarriage. 

Maybe this was a sign from the man above. A sign that Sandra should devote her time to women that have had to go through such a horrible ordeal. Quite frankly, I don't know what to make out of  this. I don't know about you but God confuses me most of the time. It doesn't mean that I don't believe in him. I'm at the stage of my life where I believe in him wholeheartedly. I want Sandra to do the same. We all have a purpose in life and sometimes we need to look at the bigger picture. As terrible as things may seem, there's always light at the end of the tunnel.

Sandra, I'll always be here for you. As you know, I am a phone call away. I hope to see you smiling soon. The day you do that, I'll be a very happy person.

Lots of love and hugs,

Noel D. Boyd
