I’m not going to deny it. I’ve had a rough ride with my Mom since my ectopic pregnancy.
I’ve never felt support. I’ve never felt that she “got it.”
She said things like, “It’s time for you to get over it.”
Last week, I told her that I was participating in a local film project about miscarriage. She sounded surprised and a bit curious when she replied with, “Oh? Really?“.
Anyway, she just shared this on Facebook.
Today is not a special day.
It’s almost the anniversary of our loss.
It’s almost pregnancy and infant loss awareness month.
It’s almost time for the wave of light.
Maybe, just maybe… she’s been paying attention?
The why doesn’t really matter.
I’ll take the gesture as a positive sign.
It’s the first time my Mom has publicly acknowledged our loss and that’s a HUGE step forward. ❤
