Breaking the Silence:
Today is October 15th, National Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness Day. I normally wouldn't post something like this, but a very dear friend asked that I speak out to help others go through their loss.
Words are still difficult. Tears still flow easily. Sometimes you have to force yourself to get up out of bed, take a shower and participate in life again ... I've learned a lot in these past couple years (especially the last 6 months). I've learned that things don't always turn out the way you've planned, or the way you think that they should. I've learned that there are things that go wrong that don't always get fixed or get put back together the way that they were before. I've learned that some broken things stay broken and I've learned that you can get through bad times and keep looking for better ones, as long as you have people who love you.
Losing a baby can be one of the hardest things we ever have to survive. We can heal, but we never forget. Our babies are gone, but are never out of our thoughts or out of our hearts.
