Two years ago today my life changed in a way I never expected possible. We lost out precious first baby.
"They" tell you that time heals the pain and grief, two years ago I didn't believe that. Today I do. I still think about our baby, the emotional loss, the physical loss, but it isn't as hard to deal with. I still cry at times missing that baby and the life that might have been. I feel like there is a part of our family missing.
However, today I am blessed with a son who I would not have if we didn't lose that baby.
My loss gave me empathy for those struggling with loss not just of children but of spouses, friends, and parents. It has opened doors for me to talk to people more in depth that I wouldn't have otherwise.
Today I am sad for my loss, but I am happy for what I do have. I know that I will never forget our baby.
