    Jen, thank you for your comment of support on Candace’s blog. It is amazing how our angel babies never quite leave our minds. I am having a harder time this year than last now that the holidays are approaching. Our most recent angel baby would have been born in December 2014. We would have been celebrating baby’s 2nd (or maybe first!) Chrismas this year. You would think after at least 4 miscarriages and one amazing, growing 5 year old child, it would get easier…but it doesn’t.
    I found myself listening to Sarah McLachlan’s “Wintersong” as I drove across town on a dark, cold and gloomy evening this week, and I burst into tears as I listened to the words:

    The lake is frozen over
    The trees are white with snow
    And all around
    Reminders of you
    Are everywhere I go

    And this is how I see you
    In the snow on Christmas morning
    Love and happiness surround you
    As you throw your arms up to the sky
    I keep this moment by and by

    Thank you, Jen, for sharing your heart and being an advocate. I will be praying for you as you journey through life, motherhood, and grief.

      Thank you Heather for your heartfelt comment. No, I don’t think it would be easier after your losses. I had one major loss, and I think about (and cry about) him or her a lot.

      Thank you for sharing those meaningful lyrics. I’m a huge Sarah fan, and songs seem to bring up the emotion the most.

      And thank you for sharing your story. I hear you, I feel you, and your pain is valid. Wishing you love and peace on your journey.
