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!

Quack Attack!

I am part of a local online "mommies" group. I joined when I got pregnant to meet other moms in the area and to learn everything baby related in the area that I could! When we lost Wyatt, I was directed to a private chat board they have for infant loss/grief support. I post on these boards from time to time and the women I've "met" have been great to bounce off of with my grieving frustrations.

Today, we were quacked by the group! For the a local charity duck "race" coming up soon (for an organization that provides counseling to those who have lost babies, children or for children that have lost loved ones), the online group is having members donate to have other members "quacked" as you see below.

The ducks really made our day and was a wonderful thing to walk out to this AM!!! They are SO cute...little halo's and little white wings. The lone duck on the step is in honor of Wyatt. I get to keep him! In a few days our quackers will be gone and on to another unsuspecting Mommy! :)

That has to be one of the cutest (and sweetest) things I have ever seen.

Oh, how sweet! The picture of all the little duckies made me want to laugh and cry at the same time.

How sweet! What a neat way to remember your little W. It is so nice to know that other women are remembering him too, that always comforts me.
