Some things in life are unexplainable, and a parent losing their child is one of the hardest to swallow.

But that is the reality that Melbourne lifestyle blogger Sarah Jane Young and her family have to face.

CHARLOTTE ROSE YOUNG { born into heaven at 21 weeks at 8.10am on Jan 10th 2017 } – weight: 350g / height: 25.8cm. While your little life was way too brief, in that very short time YOU have proven to me that a mother’s heart is NEVER, ever full. Our hearts are beyond broken and there will never be day that goes by where we don’t think about you – our sweet baby girl. What I wouldn’t give for a lifetime of your belly-ballet-ninja routines for hours on end again… In the words of your PoPo just a few days ago, “a mother’s love for her daughter is immeasurable”. Charlotte, my and our connection to you as a family will forever be immeasurable. We love you and will honour your memory our little rose petal, forever and EVER. Now rest in peace our darling angel. LOVE ALWAYS and ALWAYS, mummy, daddy & your big sis Mia Grace x

On Tuesday this week, Sarah Jane gave birth to her second daughter, who was stillborn at just 21 weeks, well before her May due date.

Instead of celebrating her arrival, they’re forced to mourn her death.

Her little angel was “born straight into heaven”, as she described it in an Instagram post.

Cradling the tiny girl in her arm for the final time, Mrs Young was comforted by her husband as their toddler daughter Mia Grace kissed her stillborn sister.

MY FAMILY / MY OXYGEN > waking up today with an even emptier heart… The pain is worse… The distance from our baby girl is greater… The anger couldn’t be stronger… The seconds are longer and my world has stopped. It’s hard to ever imagine smiling again and trying to be strong for our precious MG is so, so incredibly hard. BUT… My blessings have been magnified tenfold and my amazement in a mother’s capacity to love and nurture her family is at its highest. I wanted to share this family photo with you, because I am so proud and grateful. Thank you all for your kind words, patience and understanding. I need some time out from the world, but if one positive thing can come from losing our daring Charlotte Rose, let it be the reminder to all that EVERYONE has a story. Never judge, never compare and just be. I look forward to brighter days… One day. I will live and love again for you my rose petal. Forever. I love you, mummy x

In an emotional post on Instagram, Mrs Young penned a candid post about the loss of her daughter – and the heartache that followed was almost beyond words.

‘While your little life was way too brief, in that very short time YOU have proven to me that a mother’s heart is NEVER, ever full,’ Ms Young wrote on her Instagram page.

‘Our hearts are beyond broken and there will never be day that goes by where we don’t think about you – our sweet baby girl.

‘What I wouldn’t give for a lifetime of your belly-ballet-ninja routines for hours on end again… In the words of your PoPo just a few days ago, “a mother’s love for her daughter is immeasurable”.’

Our thoughts and prayers are with Sarah Jane and her family during this difficult time.
