Many Thanks...

I just wanted to thank all of those out there who read, follow, and comment on Harper's blog. It means more to me than I could ever express in words. It does my heart so much good to know that Harper's story has made a difference, even if it is for only one person. If reading her blog has touched you in anyway , made you feel like what you are feeling is normal and that you are not alone in your grief, or made you smile when you were having a bad day-then Harper is making a difference.

I have received a few emails from friends, thanking me for writing this blog because it has helped them to understand a little bit about what we are going through. I know that people who have not walked in these shoes will never truly get it, but it means a lot to know that they are trying and being supportive.

One of the biggest fears I had when we didn't get to bring our baby home was that she would be forgotten or that she wouldn't be counted as a grandchild, a cousin, a niece, a child. Never by me or Chris but by others who never knew her like we did. I have been pleasantly surprised by all of the emails, comments on facebook, snail mail and 'followers' here. Her story is being read and making a difference and I am so happy to know that she is not forgotten.

Even though she is no longer here on earth with us, she lives on in the hearts of so many. Thank you for remembering our dear daughter, for that, I will be forever grateful.

I'm so glad that you have such supportive friends! It means the world to me when friends from the past do what they can to try and comprehend what we're going through -- either by reading books about loss, reading my blog, etc.

The fear you have is also one of my greatest fears. But, Harper is part of your family and will always be remembered. She is one special little girl who has touched my heart and the hearts of so many.

Her story, your blog, and your journey is making a difference.

Sending you love and hugs!
