Day 29: Healing – Capture Your Grief

I have often described myself as a very deep wound. Every day it heals a little, but with every step forward – the scab pulls away and breaks open and starts to bleed again. Some days bleed more then others. But even after time, I’ll always have this deep scar.

Day 25: #SayItOutLoud – Capture Your Grief

Nobody knows the pain I feel. Every day I am reminded of my pain. And this pain I feel is in other words my love for Jonah and his absence. This pain is defeating. I never knew I could love someone so much and I never knew my heart could hurt this bad. I should […]

Today is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day and I have had Jonah’s candle lit all day long. It has been a gloomy day here, but his light shines brightly. It’s funny to think that just a few short months ago, I would have never thought about this day and that it would ever pertain […]
