This morning, my Dad called. He mentioned how it was my Uncle’s birthday.
I asked if he remembered what else today was. He claimed he couldn’t remember.
It was awkward until he finally caved and said,
“I know this is the day you lost the baby. I didn’t want to bring it up and upset you.”
I told him that it NEVER upsets me to hear you mention my baby. It is a blessing to know that you remember her too.
And that is WHY I am so vocal about my loss.
My own family can’t even get how to deal with it.
Two years ago today, we lost our first baby due to an ectopic pregnancy. ❤
My life will never be the same. There’s a ache and a longing in my heart, but I’ve transformed through my grief. I’ve found my voice and I’m passionate about helping other women through their struggle.
This month, I am a part of a local film project called, “This is Miscarriage.” It’s based on a poem written by a woman named Laura after her 3rd loss. It features the stories of 10 women – including myself – who experienced pregnancy loss.
Even though each of our stories is unique, the emotions we’ve felt along the way are common. There is a sense of understanding and compassion that is so strong among bereaved Mothers.
I’m proud to join hands within the baby loss community. These women are some of the the strongest I’ve ever met.
Stay tuned… I’ll share the video once it goes live!
