August 19th ~ Day of Hope

If you are a Baby Loss Mother and never been over to check out Carly Marie go and check out this amazing woman, mother, and photographer!

"August 19th is about honouring and remembering the lives of babies and children that could not stay with us. By doing this we are speaking out about the death of babies whether it is through pregnancy, infant, or even child loss."

I love love love that she calls this day  "Day of Hope". Hope is such a big part of my life and my family's life! This one emotion and sentiment is sometimes the singular thing that keeps me going while I continue to face the grief over the loss of our little daughter last October 15th. It is the one thing that keeps me going through a difficult pregnancy with Caroline's little brother. I have HOPE that I'll come out on the other side of grief a better wife, better mother, better daughter of Christ.

To honor and remember our sweet daughter today I invite you to read (or re-read) her story here, here, and here.

Much love to everyone who shares the Day of Hope with me!!

Oh Hillary, I never had read the whole story(just part of it) on Caroline. How heartbreaking. The dates are close to my David's. Strange to think how we were grieving at about the same time. You spoke about Halloween and her memorial service. David's was on the 29th. But, I remember Halloween weekend so vividly because I had canceled our plans to go to a corn maze with friends and on actual Halloween I could not bear to go out and my husband went out with the kids and our friends. I hid. I have been wondering how that holiday will feel this year. We can go through it together. Much love, Christina
