About me?? I'm not sure what I should even say here. I gave birth to my first child on August 9, 2011. That was the BEST and WORST day of my life. Shortly after birth my little girl decided to go up to heaven. I'm still dealing with the pain of losing her, and reality has yet to set in that she is actually gone and I'm no longer carrying her in my belly. If I learned anything through all of this thus far, it's to cherish every moment of your pregnancy!!!
Thank you MamaCass for the beautiful art for my angel!!
My SO is the love of my life and my best friend!! I seriously didn't know that somebody out there like him existed. He is my better half, someone who makes me a better person inside and out! He is my soulmate and I can't picture my life without him in it!

Don't Ask Me
Written by: Rita Moran
Please, don't ask me if I'm over it yet
I'll never be over it
Please, don't tell me she's in a better place
She isn't with me
Please, don't say at least she isn't suffering
I haven't come to terms with why she had to suffer at all
Please, don't tell me you know how I feel
Unless you have lost a child
Please, don't ask me if I feel better
Bereavement isn't a condition that clears up
Please, don't tell me at least you had her for so many years
What year would you choose for your child to die?
Please, don't tell me God never gives us more than we can bear
Please, just tell me you are sorry
Please, just say you remember my child, if you do
Please, just let me talk about my child
Please, mention my child's name
Please, just let me cry.
