Deep Breath

Today is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day. It has been deemed so by Congress. Smack dab in the middle of PINKMANIA, we stop and remember all of the mamas who have outlived their babies...which, to me, feels unnatural and unjust. Although many moms have gone on to deliver healthy babies, who are growing up to be delightful children, it doesn't detract from a pain that is always there and will always show...if you scratch hard enough.

Aunt Becky, of Band Back Together, has established a Wall of Remembrance on her blog today. Shep is listed, but so are many, many, many more. If you, as a grieving mother (or father), ever feel alone, pull up this blog post and read it aloud...and know that you are not. It's a devastating club to belong to...but we will band back together.

Love, light, and prayers for a peaceful day.


  1. Funny. I thought of you and Shepherd this morning. Must be cosmic ESP or something... perhaps yesterday's list?

    Always with good thoughts.

  2. Big, big hugs!! You know my heart is with you my friend!

  3. Such a sad thing, but yes, I'm sure the togetherness is comforting. Thanks for posting.

  4. I love ya...just love ya. And Neal and Shep, your little angel.

  5. So sad :( Sending great big *HUGS* your way today and always, momma.

  6. God bless little Shep and the many other baby angels.
