After struggling to get pregnant for nearing 2 years, in November 2011, we discovered we were expecting our first child.  At 28 weeks, I went into preterm labour and delivered our son by emergency C-section. Nineteen days later he passed away due to complications of Serratia.

In January, 2014 we suffered a miscarriage.

We have fertility issues and are currently trying to conceive our second third child.

For a time, after our son passed away. I followed a couple of pages that connected those who have lost children.  I was grateful for the connection and being able to read their stories.  As time passed, I began to feel restless and needed another outlet or avenue to express myself.  Those of you living with grief, know the difficulties to express our selves in our daily lives.

There is so much to learn and strength to gain from others.  Grief is never-ending.  Each day I struggle with which foot to put forward.  I am blessed with this blogging community and what it has brought to our lives.

I will close by giving a description of myself.

I am a 4o year old wife and mother.  I work full time and enjoy crafting.  I am one in four.

      Oh thank you very much. We are kind of bias but yes he is handsome! Hehe. I often feel on the inside that I am not strong but I now deep down that is not true. Not one of us can walk this path and not be. It means so much to connect with others and I look forward to reading more of your posts.
