The Next Step

I am absolutely overwhelmed by the response my article about our January Jewel is getting. I wrote the original post to put voice to my pain and hopefully raise awareness and help somebody find comfort. It seems that I’ve achieved that goal.

Why I Refuse To Stay Silent About My Miscarriage

I’ve had a few weeks break from writing and its been weird. It’s usually my outlet, my pressure valve and my way of being productive even though my house is falling apart around me.

We’re now at a point when we are more than just treading water and we are getting into a nice comfy groove with everything life has thrown at us since our son came into our lives almost a year ago. He’s napping better, eating everything…… Continue reading Room for one more?
