Day 213

I love having deep soulful conversations. I have connected with a few of my dear soul sisters today and they have filled me up with so much love. I am feeling much more like myself now that I am getting better from the shingles. I have been working with my editor who is in the UK on my book on Navigating Baby Loss. It is now going through it’s final edit and should be all done in the next few weeks. It is giving me goosebumps knowing that this book is going to be out there to help the families that need it. It is a short book of 50 pages and contains my own story plus those of seven other bereaved families. It is something that Hamish has guided me to do and I can’t wait to share it with the world. So many women suffer in silence or don’t have a big support network around them. If you don’t live in a big city like me you might not have access to in person support groups. When you go through something like this all you crave is to talk to and read about other people who have been through it. You want to know you are not alone on this journey. That things will look up. Knowing that grief isn’t something that you just get over. You learn to live with it. It is something that stays with you and having connections with others on this journey really helps. It comes and goes in different intensities over time. What always remains is the love you have for your child.

Hamish you bring me so much joy. I am so proud to be your mother.
