October 15th is National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day. If you've been a longtime loyal, you most likely read my story back in October of 2008. Some of you have even gone as far as to light a candle for me on this day these past few years.
For that, I thank you.
I'll be honest. It's not something I like to think about and in truth, it's something that I rarely talk about. When I do, it's simply "remember that first time I was pregnant?" I hate that it is a part of my history and truth be told, I struggled with sharing this story here again.
But then I remember how so many of you emailed. So many. And shared your story with me, even if you hadn't yet shared it with family and friends. Or perhaps you had, but you hadn't yet written about it, sharing it with the blog world.
And I'm not sure I can ever tell you just how much that meant to me. So here I am, sharing my story, once again, in hopes that it may give someone reading out there peace and hope in themselves.

Tonight we'll be squeezing C just a little bit tighter and lighting a candle for all of those who have suffered and now remember.
