Today is Pregnancy and Baby Loss Awareness Day - a day we surround our loved ones and ourselves in love as we remember those babies whose light faded too quickly. I hesitated to post anything about it because I always fear people think I should be over losing my pregnancy last year. And for the most part I have let go of the grief and - admittedly - the jealousy I felt towards other people (the latter being the harder of the two). But you know what? I don't need to justify my feelings to anyone nor does anyone else who has experienced a loss. If I still cry when I think of Myrtle Bean in 5, 10 or 20 years so be it. How do you forget seeing a tiny beating heart - the heart of your child to be?
So to all those who have loved and lost and continue to remember ... I send you my prayers, my love and the light of God to shine in your heart.
To Myrtle Bean, my love forever and a day.
