My painful month of March

March is always a tough time for me because this is when I was at my happiest, when Tyler was born on March 9th and my saddest, when Tyler left me on March 23rd.

This March 9th my husband (not Tyler's father) and I will be spending a week in London. We both need a vacation and I need to stay busy! I can not believe it has been almost 9 years already. I miss Tyler soo much. This time is particularly hard, it seems, because my sister is pregnant and a very close co-worker just found out she is pregnant. I find myself both happy and distant from them at the same time.

We have decided to put our adoption on hold for a little bit, but look forward to the day when we welcome home a little bundle of joy!

I am so sorry to hear of your loss, and so sad to hear that it is still so painful. I too am having a difficult time this month. My due date was March 9th...this year. I had my baby girl at 26 weeks on Nov 29th 2003. I was 26 weeks pregnant. She lived for 7 days in the NICU and passed on Dec 6th. I really do not know how I am going to get through these next few days. It is so hard to imagine that in just a few days, I should have her here with me. Does it ever get any easier? I know it will never go away, but will this hurt and emptiness ever fad a little? You can write to me here or anytime at disneyfreak@t-online.de

Kris,

I am so sorry for your loss.
I suspect we will always miss our departed children... sometimes
I feel so robbed of my baby. My husband and I will also look into
adoption in about a year (we are moving states). We look forward to
a new baby but we also know that our lives are forever changed.
Things will never be the same without Josiah.

Thinking of you...and precious Tyler. Perhaps him, Josiah and the
other babies are playing together in heaven.

Gloria mom to Josiah 11/12/03 - 12/4/03 @ 26wks pre e
