Please light a candle for my angel
This memorial website was created in the memory of our much loved baby boy, Joshua Paul James Hicks was born in Hull, in United Kingdom on November 15th 2006 at 6pm and fell asleep on November 16th 2006 at 11.30am, we were blessed to have Joshua with us for 17 short hours but we will love and miss him for eternity .
Joshua was our much wanted & waited for miracle baby. I found out i was pregnant on 18th March 2006 just 3 days before my 27th Birthday it was he best present i could have wished for. I had a perfect pregnancy no problems at all, I carried Joshua for 39 weeks and 2 days.
I loved being pregnant feeling every move my baby boy made and being kept awake when he had hiccups. I used to play Mozart to him through my belly every night because i thought that if he had some music he could asociate with it would help settle him when he was born. Paul (Joshua's Daddy) used to read 'The Hungry Caterpillar' story to my tummy while we laid in bed so Joshua would be able to recognise his Daddy's voice.
Before we went for our 20 week scan we both said we didn't mind if it was a boy or a girl but i knew Paul secretly wanted a boy, when the midwife who was performing the scan told us we were having a boy Paul was o excited he was like a little kid, he started talking about all the father & son things they could do.
We also had a 4D scan when i was 30 weeks pregnant and it was the most amazing thing we had ever seen. You could tell on the scan that Joshua would look like his Daddy, we saw him moving, we saw him smile he even stuck out his tongue, it was amazing and so beautiful to see all that before he was born.

Joshua was born on 15th November 2006 5 days before his due date, weighing a healthy 8lbs 10oz measuring 52cm and was perfect in everyway. He was such a beautiful baby. Joshua had a traumatic birth which caused his problems. He fell asleep in mine and his daddys arms and with all his grandparents around him. Our world was torn apart and our hearts were broken and they will never be fully whole again.
Joshua was a planned baby and he was wanted so much, not only by us but by his grandparents and other family. He will never be forgotten and he will be missed forever.
Joshua made me a Mummy for the 1st time and that makes him extra special. He will always be my baby and one day i will be in heaven with him and be able to look after him like a Mummy should.
You are my sunshine
I love you my baby. xxx
Lord please pick a bunch for me,
Place them in my Son's arms
and tell him they're from me.
Tell him I love him and miss him,
and when he turns to smile,
place a kiss upon his cheek
and hold him for awhile.
Because remembering him is easy,
I do it every day,
but there's an ache within my heart
that will never go away.
