Today is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day. Today I remember you brother or sister that we lost four years ago this Thanksgiving. That experience changed me completely. In a lot of ways, I never really understood what I had lost until I had you.
Because of what had happened before, while I was pregnant with you I was very afraid. I thought every day may be the day that I would lose you, too. But God knew what was happening. He spoke directly to people to tell us everything would be fine. He prompted people to pray when a rough patch was coming. Even your name, which we chose six years before we had you, fit you and our situation perfectly.
Today also marks one year since we found out that you were…well, you! And we couldn’t love you more.
