I hadnt thought of it that way, Tracy. A tribute to that lost baby. Thank you for always seeing things with such a beautiful heart. You add so much to my life.xo

Thank you, Johanna. Its taken me too, too long to be honest about it. I am amazed by the response. xo

Oh Heather, I appreciate you sharing your perspective and honesty with me. And I am so touched by your kind words. I agree that having it be my first pregnancy (when so much of that experience was unknown to me) was devastating. I felt it set the stage for what I deserved. Had I already had some children by then, I am sure my perspective would have been different (though the grief still there in its own way)

You have a heart made of the purest gold, Alex

We were driving through a part of town we hadn't been to in awhile. My eyes scanned the road ahead and landed on the building site of a new neighbourhood of homes. As usual, I felt myself bristle at the thought of more houses crowding our community. Oh Mama...look, she... Continue reading
