Remember...

In June of 2008, I said goodbye to more than just a dream unrealized. That's what people who have never experienced this sort of loss forget. I didn't lose a pregnancy. I lost a baby, a unique being who had a combination of my and Mr. S's DNA-our first child. I was at what I thought was 10 1/2 weeks pregnant, but unbeknownst to me until the ultrasound that fateful day, he/she had stopped growing at just past 6 1/2 weeks. It was, by far, the most devastating day of my life.

While I will not be at home at 7 PM tonight as I have been blessed enough to welcome my rainbow baby into the world and will be at a baby class because of him, I still will not forget my baby or the countless other children my friends have said goodbye to.

Thinking of my friends and their lost little ones...

I lit a candle for each of my babies, and a candle for all my friends' babies, and for all the other babies that left too soon.

((Hugs))

Hope your class was good.

I'm a day late in visiting... but I lit my candle on the 15th too.

Thinking of your lost one, my lost ones, all of our lost ones.
