Baby McBrickel

Remembering our Babies - October 15th is the official day of Pregnancy and loss Rememberance

Our pregnancy was short, way too short.

It felt like a dream and as quickly as it was given, it was taken away. Our lives can be defined as before the pregnancy and after the pregnancy. As if a filter washed everything dull and grey from the moment our loss happened.

There are good days, there are bad day and then there are days like today (and tomorrow) that will be tough to get through.

I started this blog as an outlet to voice the thoughts flooding my brain and have met this incredible group of amazing, supportive, intelligent, funny, wonderful, women who struggle with infertility in one way or another and have to recognize another emotion I will be feeling- Thankful.

I get overwhelmed with the support I recieve from you all, we have created a family of sorts.

I am thankful for all of you, especially the one who encouraged me to start blogging.

"He is a wise man who does not grieve for the things which he has not, but rejoices for those which he has.

Wow Kara.. what a sweet sweet post. I am INCREDIBLY honored to be included in it. I've been very weepy lately, so here they come. ;-)

xoxoxoxoxo and thinking of you as well. Our pregnancy was way too short too. I still think about it often and wish I could have protected that spark of life somehow.

Aww ... Kara. I feel so honored. But you, girl. You are one heck of a fine outstanding person yourself. I feel as if I'm the one who's hit the jackpot with your friendship.

Please know that although I haven't had much time (other than to spout angry tirades on my blog), you are constantly in my thoughts.

You ROCK!
