This memorial website was created in the memory of our Beautiful Angel Daughter, Emily Rose Majka.
Emily Rose was born on April 20th, 2005 at 10:33PM She was 12.3 oz. and 10 1/2 inches long. She had my husbands nose, eyes, feet and hands. She had my lips and chin. She was so tiny and so perfect.
Our beautiful baby girl was born sleeping at 24 weeks. She had an amniotic band on her cord which stopped blood flow from getting to her. She is our Special Angel. We love her more than anything and know one day we will hold her in our arms once again.
My Pregnancy with her was so wonderful. Everything from the start went so perfect. On March 9th 2005 we found out we were having a Little Girl!! We were so so excited. I felt so connected to her from the very start of this wonderful journey with her. Every night after dinner was our special time. I would lay on my back on the couch, light some candles, and get my headset. I would put the headset on my belly and play her some of my favorite songs. She would always kick at that time. I felt so close to her and couldn't wait til after dinner everynight. I had such a bond with her from the very start. I remember thinking around 22weeks something was wrong. I felt like she was trying to tell me she was sick. After my 22 week appointment my Dr. told me everything was fine. I still worried. I found out on April 18th 2005 my instincts were right on. I called my Dr. for some more reasurrance and he said to come on in to hear her heartbeat and ease my worries. That was the worst day of our lives. We found out she had passed away a few days earlier. They told me my only option was to be induced. I felt so in shock I felt like it was all an awful nightmare.
We went in the hospital at 6:45am on April 20th 2005. I remember walking to the Maternity Ward. I saw all the new Mommy's with their new infants. I saw all the little cribs waiting for a newborn to lay in them. I knew I was going to deliver my little sweet girl and she would be sleeping. After a long day and night, with loved ones by my side, I finally gave birth to our special angel Emily Rose. It was 10:33PM. She was so beautiful, and so so tiny. I couldn't believe how amazing she looked. She was a little bundle of her Father and me all rolled up into one. She has changed my life in so many ways. She made me realize how I could love someone so much that I would give my own life for her to live. She made me feel so much love from her in such a short time. I feel like a huge part of me has died with her. I miss her so much that the pain is so undiscribable there are days I can hardly catch my Breath.
I remember the strength I felt from her the night I gave birth to her. I felt her spirit above me the whole time. I know she is with me, I feel her all the time. She always has a very special place in my heart that is just for her. I Love you Emily Rose, always and forever.
Hi Daddy Hi Daddy, its me, Your baby girl in the sky. Won't you tell me Daddy, Why does my mommy cry? Doesnt she know I'm happy here, Heaven's a beautiful place Oh, how it hurts me, Daddy To see tears streaming down Mommy's face. Daddy, tell her I'm much better here, Jesus fixed my heart. But when I see mommy crying, It just about tears it apart. I know it hurt you both, Daddy, When Jesus took me away. But you and mommy remember, We'll be together again someday. I can't wait to hug you, I never got the chance before. When its time for you to come, I'll be waiting at heavens door. Then you'll both understand, Jesus knew where I needed to be. What a marvelous place to live, Just wait and you both shall see. Please let my Mommy know, Daddy, That I heard every word she said. And I remember her softly kissing me As I lay cuddled in her arms. Just one more thing Daddy, Before I have to go, I love you both very much And just wanted you to know.
Sometimes love is for a moment. Sometimes love is for a lifetime. Sometimes a moment is a lifetime.
God's Little Girl
Please don't be so sad, I miss you so much too. It's beautiful here where I am But I worry alot about you. I sleep with angels watching me, There's only love up here... I'm never lonely or afraid, 'Cause God's so very near. I walk with Jesus every day He's very kind and sweet. Don't worry mom; He holds my hand When we cross a golden street. I never cry or hurt myself I see Grandma everyday... I play and laugh and sing alot And I hear you when you pray. Please mommy, don't be mad at God You see, He loves me too, And even though you're not with me I'm really still with you.

Thank you for coming home from Florida to be with my Mommy. I am so happy I got to meet you and you held me. I hope you know that I am always with you and you are a Special GodMother. I love you very much. We will be togther again one day.
Love, Emily Rose
We would like to THANK all of you for visiting our Daughter's Site. Also for lighting a candle for our Angel. It means so much to us.
It seems like just yesterday I held you in my hands, for some reason God had other plans. Today our hearts are filled with sorrow but we have hopes of seeing you tomorrow. Although those plans we will never see, you know I'll save a seat right next to me. It may be many years before we reunite but when we do it'll be out of site. The love I hold for you is tried and true but until that day we finally meet please know I will always love you.
August 9th, today was your due date, I never imagined this would be your fate.
Remembering our special bond that we had, Not being with me now makes me so sad.
I still can feel your movements and kicks I’m back in time though the clock still tics.
You loved our music we shared every night, I longed to hold you oh so tight.
The day you were born I felt your spirit, The ach of seeing you still, I could hardly bare it.
So tiny, so perfect, both Daddy and Me, Our beautiful baby girl we finely could see.
We held you for hours, it seemed so brief, Having to let you go was too much grief.
You have changed our lives for eternity, We always have a piece of you Baby Emily.
I just hope you know and you feel, All my love for you is incredibly real.
My dreams for you are all ripped away, Your first word, first step and watching you play.
Shopping for clothes and braiding your hair, Kissing and whipping away your first tear.
Proms, Graduation, cherished events we wont see, Proudly walking down the aisle with Daddy and Me
I know you are at peace in Heaven above, I hope and I pray you can feel our love.
I ach for the day we will be together and complete, Till we come to that day my heart will not beat.
On the day God took you I thought that I would die I wondered where the time went? I asked alot of whys?? With people all around me I felt alone inside From all their words of comfort, I couldn't seem to hide, I thought I might be dreaming That I'd wake and find you here, I thought "This can't be happening." As I wiped another tear. On the day that you were laid to rest My heart broke yet again, I wondered if the pain would end, But mostly, I wondered when?? It's hard to be without you, At times the days seem long, Sometimes I just sit crying, When there's really nothing wrong. I wish we'd had more time, Before your life was done. I hope your resting peacefully, My precious one
Does Anyone Know? August 9th 2005
Does anyone know what today should be? Anyone else or is it only me?
Does anyone know how great today would have been, If you would have come now, instead of then.
It seems people forget; to them it is just another day. But for me, I just can't think of it that way.
My heart aches and I can't stop the tears. I keep on wishing that you were still here.
Others just don't understand why, today, I mourn. Today is a special day; the day you should have been born
In honor of my daughter, Emily Rose Born sleeping April 20th, 2005
