I just went through my son's 1st birthday last month. I feel very much like you just described. I'm wishing you and yours the VERY best! By the way, I love your quote at the bottom of your messages!

So sorry to hear that you're having a hard time right now. I cannot imagine how the season when you lost Chloe wouldn't bring back memories. Wish there was something I could do to make the hurt go away. Thinking of you and keeping you in my prayers. Hugs,

I cannot imagine the pain of losing a child. I've said it so many times since being here. I am so impressed by you and the many other wonderful, strong women who've dealt with this pain and still manage to go on. I can only imagine that having recently had little Laura makes it even more poignant.

Sending you all my love,

Goes to show that having 1 or even 2 more babies
will never take the yearning in our hearts for
our lost babies. Thinking of you and also sitting
in anticipation for myself, since my anniversary
is also coming up. I find myself crying easier these
days at the memories and sharing about him unexpectantly.
Take Care,

just to let you know that you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers at this difficult time. There are no words even close enough to help ease even a modicum of your pain, just know that we are all here whenever you feel you need to share your thoughts.

hugs and love to you all

Suzanna, I'm sending you thoughts of peace and comfort as you prepare for Chloe's birthday/angel day. I too have very strong associations to things and everything seems to remind me of my baby these days. (((Hugs))) to you and your family.

I lost my son 9 1/2 years ago - he would have been 10 in March 2005 - and I know that this will really knock my socks off. All I can say is that many of us know how you feel and in some way, dread that upcoming anniversary, it is very painful. Some how I have come to live without my baby, but it never goes away and it never will. I know it will be tough day. What I have decided to do for his 10th birthday is have a sort of mother's ring made with his birthstone. I also have a few pieces of jewelry that my mother/dh gave me and when I wear them I know they remind me of Tyler.

Suzanna - Sending lots of hugs this month. My thoughts are with you. I love your message in your signature, that is so true. You never know what love can be until you have a child. It is so hard to not have that child with you to love. I know that January will never be the same for me.

Take care, I hope that you feel some peace as this anniversary approaches.
