I'll Always Love and Miss You. #miscarriage #miscarriageawareness
by Ellen M. DuBois on 10/02/19
This is preganancy and infant loss awareness month and I know it's a difficult time for many. We remember our babies and share in that pain together. We also honor our little one's brief but life changing stay with us. We lean on each other for support. We collectively remember our babies on October 15th, Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day.
I'm sure it's a club none of us want to belong to. Yet, we find ourselves in it. I'm so sorry for your loss. Losing a baby, any kind of baby loss, is beyond painful. It really does change you. I've lived with that change for over 25 years. That's a long time, and there are still times it seems like yesterday.
I believe my baby and I are connected by love. It's so strong that time, space, even death does not separate us. The beautiful soul who left my life has stayed with me in a spiritual sense. My baby will always live in my heart and in the ethers.
I know it's not the way I wanted it to be- who does? I know the ache you feel and how it sometimes creeps up on you at the most unexpected times.
I believe we support each other as our babies support us from Heaven. We are surrounded by their love and that's what keeps us close to them.
My thoughts and prayers are with each one of you. When it feels like you are alone, please know there are many others that care about you and are familiar with the path you're walking.
I'm one of them.
Love and Light,
