Just the Beginning

First of all, lots of bloggy love to all of you that left comments for Joy. I know the beta hell that she is living right now is not an easy place to be, and I hope that the support from our community offers her a tiny bit of comfort as she waits.

I have already had many requests for future Memorial Mondays. To that end, I am organizing them right now. Some people have special dates coming up (birthdays, due dates, etc.), so I am trying my best to honor those and might not necessarily go in the order that I receive them. As long as you received a reply from me, rest assured that I did receive your request and will post it as soon as possible.

I am working on a Memorial Monday Logo to post here and also, for those willing to do so, post on others' blogs so that we can spread the word around. I'll post more on that when I have finished the logo.

I also have added a new link to the left. The SHARE Link has been up for awhile now, but I also found the Healing Hearts website and thought it would be helpful to those that are grieving or would like to help someone who is. I will continue to look for similar resource sites so that if people cannot find what they are looking for here, they can have an idea of where to look next. If you know of good websites for dealing with infertility/loss, please e-mail me so that I can add it in the future.

As I mentioned in a previous post, Memorial Monday is just the first of several ideas that have been brewing for awhile. After my third loss, I vowed that my angel babies would not die in vain. I truly feel a calling to help others navigate the rough waters of loss. I was fortunate to have a loving husband, supportive friends, and the financial resources to get the help that I needed. I know that not all grieving parents are so fortunate. I truly believe that by being a resource to others, I can create a living tribute to my lost little angels.

So, stay tuned.

You are awesome. Just completely, wonderfully awesome.

And I especially love being able to keep up with Will since he is so close in age to Andrew.

Keep on keepin' on.

You will probably see this soon but wanted you to know the sonogram showed a dead embryo and I'm already in the process of miscarrying. This will be our 2nd loss.
