Faces of Loss, Faces of Hope

I have learned a lot of things as I drudge through this heartbreaking journey of losing my daughter. I will get to most these in another post. One of the most comforting things I have learned is that I am not alone. I have my loving, supportive, and loyal husband who is and has been my rock. He has dried so many of my tears and I love him so much. I have wonderful parents and in-laws, who I know are devastated beyond words for the loss of their grand daughter. I have family and friends who love me. They have all been there for me every step of the way and for that, I am eternally thankful.

I have also come in contact with a new circle of friends. They are from all over the world and all walks of life, they are fellow angel mommies. This is a group of strong, beautiful, supportive women who have made this road a little more bearable. There is just something about losing your child that only a mother who has been there can understand. I have read their stories and cried for their angels, as I know they have done for Harper.

I am sad to say that we have joined a sad club of Mommies and Daddies that had to say goodbye to their sweet babies too soon. It is terrible that there are so many of us out here. Faces of Loss, Faces of Hope is a blog that some of the angel moms started to help put a face to pregnancy and infant loss while also helping women who are facing these struggles know they are not alone. It is a beautiful site, full of amazing women. Please head over and check it out!
