My name is Heather and I am 26, I was a member of baby gaga when I was trying to have my first child and all throughout my pregnancy. After she was born she took up most of my time and I fell off the map. Since then her father and I divorced and she is now a 4 year old big girl! I am now remarried to my amazing husband, Josh, and have a beautiful 3 year old stepson. We just got married on 3/16/13 and I got my BFP on 4/4/13! Unfortunately on 4/23/13, I started to miscarry
We are crushed and scared about trying again. This is my second m/c and it makes me scared that maybe my DD was a fluke. We plan to try again ASAP though and are hoping the next one sticks.

“You were only in my life for a second.
I never felt you move inside me.
I never named you.
I never got to call you mine.
But I will never forget you.
You have touched my life and taught
me more than anyone ever has.
You taught me to cherish my family.
To Count my blessings.
That there are more people who care
about me than I ever imagined.
You taught me that its ok to cry.
That healing takes time…
And that I am stronger
than I ever knew I could be..
You showed me that every moment is a gift.
That sometimes it hurts to grow.
You are my angel,
and I love you so very much.
Thank you for touching my life.”
