I feel so blessed to have my Madeline and not a day goes by that I don’t think about how lucky I am.
Today is bittersweet for me. Next month I should have been delivering our second child. On this day, it makes me sad to think that is not happening. Our baby #2 wasn’t meant to be, miscarrying at 18 weeks. It’s been a rough couple of months, but the one constant that has brought me light, life, and happiness every single day is my Madeline. I love her more than I ever knew was possible.
If you are lucky enough to be a mommy, give your little one an extra big hug today and remember how truly blessed you are.
If you have suffered a loss, know you are not alone. I feel humbled (and grateful) for how many of you chose to share your own stories with me when I first posted about our loss. It helped to remind me that I wasn’t alone. So while I know it can sometimes seem impossible — Stay Hopeful. You are stronger than you know.
