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.
