Before there was us, there was me. And I was mine. But what was also mine was my story of loss. A broken marriage and a deep black hole in my heart that tended to swallow up joy for others when they so easily created families together. So my heart aches today for all the mamas and papas who have experienced even greater and unimaginable losses. October 15 is a day to remember each year those who have lost pregnancies and lost their sweet babies far too soon. I honor you today. I love you. In my heart, I wrap my arms around you and pray a special blessing over you — complete healing and good health. You, your partners, and your babies are seen and loved and remembered.
