Nadav

22 Feb

We lost our baby boy yesterday, letting him go a few hours before I was induced. His name was Nadav – a play on the word “gift” or “charity” in Hebrew. I have seen every bit of love all of you have sent our way. I cant thank you all enough. I wish i could just embrace all of you with the amount of love and strength you have given us in the last few days. Thank you is not enough, but it will have to do for now. Thank you for all of your thoughts and prayers. They have been and continue to be a huge comfort.
I will come back as soon as I feel able to thank you all properly and tell you more of our story and the amazing lessons we have learned through this. For now, know that Shmerson and I are ok. Hopefully we will be home with Luna tonight.

    Oh MO there simply are no words to describe this. I am SO sorry that you people are going through this. It simply is not fair. I am sending you much love from NZ. I wish I could be there in person. Take care and I will be thinking of you as always xxx

    Mo, I am so sorry for your loss of Nadav. You continue to be in my prayers. Strength and healing to you.

    What? Whhaaaaat?

    Noooooooo!

    I can’t believe this….This is awful and beyond heartbreaking…..Absolutely no way!

    Oh Mo!!!!!

    You gave him a beautiful name, but I can’t believe this….this is now how it was meant to be…not after everything you have already gone through….

    My God!

    Jeeez….I am sorry, Mo.

    • Esperanza February 22, 2012 at 09:27 #

      My beautiful Mo. Words cannot express, words cannot portray the sorrow I feel for you and your family. Word cannot bring the comfort I wish I could afford you in this tragic time. My heart breaks for you, over and over and over again. Please know that I am holding you and your gorgeous husband and your miracle Nadav in my heart and in my thoughts and that I will never, ever let you go. I wish so badly that I could do something to ease your pain. My heart goes out to you.

      With all the love in my heart.

    Oh honey…I am so sorry. This pain is indescribable and I am so incredibly heartbroken that you too have to experience this. I just can’t tell you how much I hurt for you.

    I am thinking and praying for your son. Nadav. Please…if you need anything, anything at all, e-mail me. (lissmo@hotmail.com) If you want to vent to another infertile who has lost children prematurely…who can feel your grief, I’m here.

    I just wish with all my heart that things ended differently for you.

    I have only heard of your story today from Belle at scrambled eggs blog. I feel for you both and am so so sorry for your loss. My prayers are with you tonight.

  8. Mandi February 22, 2012 at 09:52 #

    Welcome Nadav. You couldn’t share this life with us, but you do share our hearts. You are loved the world over, just like your parents.

  9. Whois February 22, 2012 at 09:54 #

    Oh mo, I can’t even express how sorry I am to hear this. Sending you thoughts and strength!

  10. Lise February 22, 2012 at 09:55 #

    Oh Mo, there is just nothing I can say that helps….I will be thinking of you. Nadav is a beautiful name for a beautiful boy. I’m just so sorry.

  11. AlexMMR February 22, 2012 at 09:58 #

    I wish I had some way of easing the pain you’re going through and will be going through for a while. All I have to offer is to tell you that you’re not alone. We’ll all be here whenever you need us and we’ll give you space when you need space. Just let us know what mode you’re in from time to time and everyone here will comply.

  12. Skytimes February 22, 2012 at 10:04 #

    I’m so endlessly sorry you had to let him go, Nadav is a beautiful name. My heart breaks for you, your husband and your little boy. I know the pain too well.

    Please take all the time you need to come back to writing here..

  16. RelaxedNoMore February 22, 2012 at 11:19 #

    Dear Mo, I am heartbroken for you. I am so incredibly sorry your wonderful little Nadav could not stay with you. He had the most wonderful, loving mommy and daddy anybody could have had. There are no words I can say that would help or ease you pain. I’m sending you all my love and strength. You, Shmerson and Nadav are in my thoughts.

  17. Eva February 22, 2012 at 11:33 #

    I’m so sorry. We will remember Nadav. We know and will never forget him.

    Take care xxx

  19. Finding My New Normal February 22, 2012 at 12:09 #

    I am so sorry for your loss. Having lost a child myself (at 36 weeks) I know the pain you are feeling. If there were magic words that would make this all better I would say them to you now. But we both know they don’t exist. My heart breaks for you and your family.

    • Mina February 22, 2012 at 13:03 #

      I am so very sorry for your loss, Mo. Nadav should not have left so soon. He should have been here, your rainbow baby, in a few months’ time from now. I feel stupid writing this, as I know that there are no words or actions to take this awful thing back. So I’ve just lit a candle for your boy, so he can see easier his way to heaven, and settle there to watch over you and Shmerson.
      Many hugs and know that you are in our thoughts and prayers.

  20. Alex February 22, 2012 at 12:40 #

    I’m so terribly terribly sorry. We’re sending you our thoughts, as small and hopeless a gesture as that seems. I’m so so sorry.

    I am so sorry, Mo. You’ve been in my thoughts nonstop the past 2 days and I know I’m not the only one. What a beautiful and perfect name, too. God bless you, your hubby, and your sweet baby boy…and all your angels for that matter. ***hugs***

    Mo, I am so so sorry. I just can’t stop thinking about how terribly unfair this is. Nadav is absolutely beautiful. You’re in my prayers.

    I am overwhelmed by your strength during this impossible time. You’re so strong.

  40. Ari February 22, 2012 at 15:50 #

    My heart is broken for you, old friend. I checked your blog today and was quite surprised to see you’d picked my favorite boy’s name. It seems perfect right now. I’m so, so terribly sorry you had to go through this and that Nadav is no longer with us, but I’m comforted knowing you have an amazing husband who is by your side and a world full of friends. I’m sending love to you and your family. I wish I knew something more useful to say. Love, Ari

  42. Gil February 22, 2012 at 16:00 #

    Words fail to describe the grief that the entire blogosphere feels for your terrible, heartbreaking loss. Mo, Shmerson, I am so sorry that this happened. No one deserves this grief. Our hearts, love and prayers are with you in the hopes of comforting you, even just a little, in your time of need.

    I shed so many tears for your darling little boy. Nadav, please know how very much you are loved and you will be missed forever.

    Nadav… What a gorgeous name for such a precious angel.

    I know that there is nothing I can say or do to ease your heartache or grief, but know that I and so many others are feeling your pain as well. You and Shmerson and Nadav are in my thoughts, prayers and my heart. Take care of yourselves and don’t hesitate if you need or want anything.

    Much love and saddness,
    Christina

  52. CourtneyAnna February 22, 2012 at 16:26 #

    I am so sorry for your loss. I found out about you thru Elphaba’s blog and this is just terrible to hear. I think every loss for an IF mom hits everyone one of us other IF moms hard too because we actually understand how it feels.
    I will continue to pray for you and I am so sorry.

    I love you both very very much.

  60. Cristy February 22, 2012 at 16:55 #

    Nadav. A beautiful name for a very beautiful boy with two very special parents. I’m so sorry Mo.

  61. beruriah February 22, 2012 at 17:02 #

    I am here from Rachel, Eggs in a Row.

    I am so sorry, Mo. We lost our first son, Natan, in a very similar way 5 years ago. We too chose to give him a name for how we thought of him, as a gift. Over the years, painful as it has been and as much as I still miss him, we’ve continued to think of him as such.

  62. robin February 22, 2012 at 17:02 #

    Oh no. I’m so sorry Mo. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Nadav is a beautiful name.

  63. Justine February 22, 2012 at 17:03 #

  68. GinnyB February 22, 2012 at 17:08 #

    I am not always a praying person, but I prayed fervently that this would not happen to you and your baby boy. I am so sorry you must endure this terrible loss, and send my most deeply felt sympathy for you and your husband. Please know that you are cared about by so many women who do not even know you personally and I hope it affords some small relief to you both. May he shine with the stars in the heavens for eternity.

    I am so very sorry Mo. Good to know you are both hanging in there. Sending lots of PTs, strength and love to you at this immensely (not a strong enough word I know) sad time.

  76. Amy February 22, 2012 at 17:46 #

    Mo, I am so terribly sorry. I so didn’t want to see this outcome for you. I hope you were able to love on Baby Nadav, take his pictures, and come home with beautiful memories of him to remember always.

    Sending love, peace and strength to you and you dear husband, and hoping my twins, Aliya and Bennett, brought warm greetings and comfort to Nadav’s perfect spirit.

    Dear, sweet Mo, I’m so sorry. Those words feel so small and insignificant, and yet they really are all there is to say. Sending loads of love to you, Shmerson and Nadav from this side of the globe.

  78. Theresa February 22, 2012 at 17:56 #

    I am so sorry Mo. I have only recently been a lurker of your blog, and was so excited you had made it to 22 weeks, and so heartbroken when I heard the news. I wish there were something I coul do or say.

  79. Meaghan February 22, 2012 at 17:59 #

    Mo, I am more of a stalker than a writer. I don’t blog, but I do suffer from infertility. I have been following you since before your pregnancy with Nadav. I cried when I heard the news of the loss of your little boy and I cannot express to you how sorry I am for your loss. I will be keeping you, Shmerson, and your beautiful boy Nadav in my thoughts and prayers. Sending much love your way.

  80. CJ February 22, 2012 at 18:06 #

    You were loved by so many baby Naav. I am so sorry

    If there was anything I could do to make this go away, I would. But instead I will just remind you of how loved you are, how loved Shmerson is, and how baby Nadav has aunties all over the world who ached to hold him. We love you, lady.

  84. Jesica February 22, 2012 at 18:11 #

    Was praying so hard for different news from you. I am so sorry.

    I am so sorry. Here from Esperanza to express my deep condolences. Such a beautiful name, and your story connects me with my own grief and daughter gone too soon. So, thank you. xo

    i am so sorry for the enormous, unfathomable loss you have suffered, and that your beautiful son has gone.

    no words can sooth you now, but please know that there are many, many mothers who have lost their babies, and we are here for you.

    sweet, sweet nadav, you are so loved and missed.

  113. Bon February 22, 2012 at 21:18 #

    I wish there was something I could say that would ease your pain, even for a moment…. I wish I could help you and Shmerson by taking some of the pain on myself…. You have both had to deal with so much more than any person should have to deal with…and I am sorry, I wish we could understand why these things happen.

    I love you guys and am sending massess of love and virtual hugs your way!!

  115. Katie February 22, 2012 at 21:39 #

    I cannot express to you how sorry I am. I am in complete shock. I am sad, angry and heartbroken for you and your husband. I truly wish there was something I could say or do to help – and I wish even more that someone could undo this for you. I am keeping you and Nadav in my thoughts and in my heart. I am so sorry.

  116. Jay February 22, 2012 at 21:59 #

    I’ve never really read your blog before, but I’m crying as I read this. Nadav is a beautiful name.

    He is at peace now, but I’m so,so very sorry he never got to experience this world, and I’m so very sorry for what you and your husband have gone through, and are going to go through, as you recover from this.

    Will be here, with the rest of this blogsphere, to virtually hold your hand.

  117. Detour February 22, 2012 at 22:04 #

    Mo, I am so sorry for your loss of Nadav. My heart breaks for you and your son. All of the ALI community is here and grieving with you. So, so devastated for your loss.

  121. teejay February 22, 2012 at 22:40 #

    Every time I come here to comment I start to cry. I’m so very sorry. This is not what you should be going through. You and Shmerson deserve so much more. You are always in my thoughts. I wish there were something I could do (besides send you dumb e-mails) to help you. You and Shmerson need to hold onto each other like never before. I just can’t believe this has happened to you. And the only words out there are “I’m sorry” and it just isn’t enough. Sending you love, courage and strength my friend.

  122. Tee February 22, 2012 at 22:56 #

    Heartbreaking to read this. I’m tearing up on my train in Sydney on the way to work. You are touching so many people around the world. Your strength is amazing. We send prayers and love in mass because you have given selflessly. You helped my friend Chon, and for that you are an Angel. Through your own pain you have given yourself to others. All this live is because you have a pure kind heart.

    Let us now give back.. But it can’t measure close to what you have done all these years..

    Tee

    from the posts you wrote about your husband, he sounds like a truly wonderful man and i am glad you have each other thru this.

  132. Janet February 23, 2012 at 00:48 #

    Sweet baby Nadav. He and you are in my thoughts today. I am so sorry. So very sorry.

    My son died 6 months ago today, so the pain is still very acute. Please know that you are not alone. If you ever want to talk, even though I am a random person from the internet, I would be more than happy to listen. It was my internet friends who were a solace to me in the early days after my loss.

    I am lighting a candle for my son tonight, and I’ll add one for Nadav, too. xoxo

  133. Genevieve February 23, 2012 at 01:10 #

    I was so sad to hear about your loss, Mo. You have been through enough. I am holding you and your angels in my heart.

  139. slowmamma February 23, 2012 at 03:20 #

    Mo,
    As so many have said, words are terribly inadequate right now. I am so so sorry for the loss of your sweet Nadav. I hope that the collective breaking of so many hearts from his passing may relieve just a tiny bit of pain from yours.
    Thinking of you,
    slowmamma

  140. Jo February 23, 2012 at 03:42 #

    I can’t even imagine what you are going through right now. I am holding you in my heart, and cursing the universe on your behalf.

I love the meaning of the name you gave him. I look forward to hearing about the amazing lessons you have learned through this already. I am so moved to know how many people have been holding you, Shmerson and especially Nadav close in their thoughts and prayers. I hope that continues to give you some comfort and light during these dark days. Hang in there. Nadav will never be forgotten. (((HUGS)))
