Hi, all, especially my fellow babylost parents,

I'm trying to slog through my grief (in some ways, it's gotten harder as time passes) and as a way to cope with my daughter's death and to honor her, I've started a blog.

I don't sell anything on my blog, and for-profit ads have no place there. However, I've included a link to preeclampsia.org--I'm hoping that's okay, and I'm also hoping that more people become educated about preeclampsia as a result.

I haven't shared my blog with most people in my immediate social circle because it's hard for the majority of them to understand where I'm "at" these days. They don't want to really think about it; you know, people just want you to move on. But the death of my baby is not something I can "get over." Instead, I'm trying to figure out how to live with this pain and slowly reassemble the pieces of my broken heart. So I'm mostly sharing with the babyloss community for now.

Much love to all of you out there who have lost a child or wife/partner to this horrible disease.

I also started a blog to write down all of my feelings after experiencing the loss of our baby. I began to make it more public in order to share with people what it's like to be pregnant again after a loss. I think it is such a wonderful way to express your feelings and just let things out, but you are right, it is so hard too because no one except for those who have been there could ever understand how we never "get over" the loss of our children.

Thank you for sharing.
*hugs and love to you*

Thank you, Christa, that means a lot.

I just popped over to your blog and became a "follower." I read a bit about Noah (congratulations!), and also read Mason's story--both of your boys are just beautiful. I wish you had *both* of them with you.

I love both of your blogs and have to say you both have done such a good job with them!

I too have found solace in blogging; although with my crazy busy life I have not posted near as much as I need to.

Your blog is absolutely beautiful, and each word, so filled with love for your sweet Molly. It's been almost four years since we held our daughter and I too have found writing such a beautiful way to move through the rollercoaster and honor her memory.

Wishing you moments of peace,

Thank you, Lauren and Kristy.

Today was supposed to have been my little girl's due date. I'm so very sad and overwhelmed.

Keeping you in my thoughts. Every year I still pause on my daughter's EDD. For what it's worth, we started a tradition of buying flowers on those special days... it's really helped (as much as it can) to brighten our home that day... something I know our angels love to see.

Wishing you moments of peace,
