Made it Through

Six years have passed. I still miss my little boy who made me sicker than any of my other children. I still miss how hard you would kick, and sooner than all of your siblings did.  I miss daydreaming about you and your big brother playing together.  I think about how your big sis got to meet you in the swing that day. I remember the laughs as you kicked her hand. I loved your sweet face with your cute little nose. I still feel you in my arms. My arms holding you close, not ever wanting to let you go. My sweet little boy….I love you and miss you so.  I used to miss you so much, that I would have done just about anything to get you back. But not now. I know now, that you are the lucky one. You are in a place that I can’t wait to go. No worries or strife.  No pain or suffering. Peace forevermore.  I am so thankful you are there. I am so thankful that you taught me to be more compassionate and kind.  Losing you helped me to enjoy what I do have even more.  I am forever grateful that God picked me to be your mommy.

October is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month

October 1, 2008 at 5:59 pm (Children, Family, Life) (, , , , , )

Since 1988, October has been recognized as Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month.  Few know this.  In fact, I did not know this until 2004.

Did you know there are 26,000 stillbirths each year in the United States?  One in every 115 deliveries end in stillbirth.

Please take time to check out some of these websites and let’s increase awareness of these tragic deaths.  Maybe with more awareness, we can get closer to finding a solution.
