I am 1 in 4

October is Pregnancy and Infant loss awareness month. 

1 in 4 woman suffer with this pain and grief everyday. 

When we lost Hope, I truly thought I would die. It was my worst nightmare. 

I have had some really bad day and some really good days. 

Yesterday was a bad day, but today is a little better. 

I have clung to my faith through this and want to extend a crying shoulder, a listening ear that needs it. 

Honestly some days it seems that God has forgotten me, I know he hasn't because his word tells me he will never leave me... but it is some days I get down but he always gives me strength to move through. 

I needed and need people to recognize our Hope, she was real and we love her. 

I know I will always carry Hope with me.

No matter where I hear the word Hope I think of her. 

I'm going to have a balloon release again this year. It will not be as formal as last year and I'm hoping to work on a actual walk and service for next year. 

October 15th is the nationally recognized day for our babies!

Today I just wanted you to know I'm here, and I will not say I understand because all of our experiences are different but I can relate to the pain and grief. Do not be ashamed. Open up and start healing.

  1. Awe, I love this, Lauren! I know what you mean about just wanting people to recognize Hope. She was here, and she was and will always be a part of you just like our Mattie will always be a part of us. I have felt pretty down too lately because it already seems like people have forgotten. I am trying to think of how I can celebrate her and remember all our babies on this special day. I pinned a bunch of stuff on pinterest including that picture you posted. I will definitely be lighting a candle in remembrance, but I do want to do more. Hugs, friend!

  2. I will always remember Hope too! I know you are leaning on strength of the Lord and I see your getting peace more and more every day! I love you and will pray for all the moms that lost a child on this day too. Hug and kiss, love you!
