I had to leave town a little earlier one day last week, and this was the beautiful shot I got.  

There is just something about seeing such a beautiful sunrise to start the day.

pregnancy-infant-loss-remembrance-day

 

Something that is near and dear to my heart.  October is not only Breast Cancer Awareness month, but it is also Pregnancy/Infant Loss Awareness Month.

In 2007 my husband and I found out we were expecting.  We were OVERJOYED.  The growing tummy, the mood swings, the cravings.  I loved it.

Until the day came that the ER doctor told me that we were losing the baby.  I was ANGRY.  Angry and upset at myself.  I shouldn't have had the pop.  Or I didn't eat the right foods.  I was angry at God.  Why would he take my baby away from me.  After some soul searching and lots of tears, I made my peace.  I realized that HE had bigger plans for our baby.  And we will meet him one day.

I loved that baby.  I always have, and always will.

I am one of the special people in this world.  

I have three angels.  

Two are on earth in my arms.  One is in heaven, in my heart.

miscarriage-infant-loss-stillbirth

 

I am the face, I am 1 in 4.

 

If you are stricken by grieve of losing a child, by any means, please feel free to contact me.  No words can take away your grieve, but my ears can listen.
