October 15th – Breaking the Silence

3 years ago today I had no idea I was living the day that so many hold precious. Precious for their babies, nephews, nieces, grandchildren, sisters, brothers… gone too soon.

3 years ago today I had just found out about my first pregnancy ever, with Jenna.

3 years ago today my biggest fear was gaining too much weight. Horrible, I know.

3 years ago today I became a mommy.

3 years ago today I had no idea that there was a whole month dedicated to babies in Heaven.

3 years ago today all I hoped for was a healthy pregnancy. That’s what everyone says, right? I’ll be happy as long as he or she is healthy.

But no one ever actually thinks their baby won’t be healthy. Not really. Not unless you’ve lived it, or watched someone close to you lose their baby.

1 in 4 women will experience a pregnancy loss sometime in their lifetime. Those statistics are staggering. Mind-blowing. Real.

How did I not know about October 15th three years ago?

Let’s break the silence. No one should feel alone in this.

Thank you the Letter 4 for helping us break the silence and featuring our Lost for Words card line on this special date!

    Oh, how I wish blogs like this were prevalent back in 2004, when my daughters Madelaine and Charlotte were born. What a gift of healing it would have been. Happy to have found you through Stephanie at A Mother Lost … and honored I’ll be to feature a link to your blog and store on {this little light’s} Sharing Heals page.

    Thank you for all you do!
