I am 35 years old, living with stage IV Endometriosis, possibly adenomyosis and struggled with infertility for almost 4 years. I also struggled with PPD and now struggle with PMDD. I am a mother to a son that was born at 18 weeks and too precious for this earth; and now a mother to a son born in August 2011. By journaling here, I hope to benefit both for myself and for others that are dealing with this disease and fertility struggles. Thanks for visiting!

Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day

I didn't realize it until I started reading some blogs, but, today is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day. Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day is observed with Remembrance Ceremonies and candle lighting Vigils which coincides with an International Wave of Light with participants lighting candles on October 15 at 7:00 p.m. around the world to honor and remember our children.

Please light a candle this evening for your loses, your friends loses, a strangers loss.

We'll be lighting one this evening (I won't be home at 7 but I promise to do this when I get home!) for our loss earlier this year, and, for those out there remembering their losses today and pray for peace.

What a beautiful way to remember. We are seeing this late, but wish we could have been able to participate at the same time. If things had gone differently, our oldest baby would have turned 6 this month. You never forget. To be honest, it is harder now because I have James and Brendan and I know what I am missing out on. When we pray about it, we call her Hope.
