This little girl of mine… my everything. Truly, I cannot express how grateful I am for my little princess.
As many of you know, just last month, we suffered a terrible loss. We lost baby #2 at 18 weeks. Words cannot express my sadness and heartbreak to learn that the baby no longer had a heartbeat well into the second trimester.
The one thing that is getting me through the sadness and heartache is my Madeline. Luckily she is still too young to have any idea what happened — and she is as happy as a lark at all times! Her smile and joy definitely puts a smile on my face everyday, even though I am hurting inside. She says ‘momma’ all the time now and that just puts me on cloud nine — and she just loves to dance! At moments like these I briefly escape the reality of what happened.
I cherish her every giggle, word, and happiness each and every day. I am taking it day by day and trying my best to get back to my routine.
After posting the devastating news on Instagram @jenniferlane, I received thousands of messages from others that have also experienced loss. It’s a terrible thing to go through, but know that you are not alone.
Focus on the positive and what makes you happy.
