  1. Hi,
    I saw your most recent post through a mutual Facebook friend and wanted to thank you for sharing your story. My husband and I lost our son at 25 weeks due to a cord accident. It gives us so much hope to see how positive you are and how you have handled a tragic situation with so much grace. I love that you created this blog to honor your daughter. I am wishing you all the best for your future. Thank you again.

  2. Thank you for sharing. As a new(ish) mother, my heart goes out to you. My daughter is beautiful and healthy, and for that we are beyond lucky. I can’t imagine life without the daughter I adore, and for that, my heart breaks for you. My mother had a stillborn baby right near her due date before I was ever born and I’ve watched her grieve for my entire 32 years, with no end in sight. I can’t fully understand the anguish one must feel, but I have so much respect for courageous women willing to share their story…blessings to you and congratulations on your pregnancy!
