It has been awhile since I was here on the forum. Thank you to all of you who gave me such valuable words of support and advice last year after our tragedy happened and we lost our beautiful angel Isak. May 24 will be the one year anniversary of his stillbirth and I am honestly nervous about it. I want to commemorate it and read something about a special cake with a card, but wondered if any of you who have already passed this milestone for your angels have any suggestions or ideas of what you did to remember them on their 1 year stillbirthdays.
For those of you who are new to this group and have recently suffered a loss, I am so sorry. No one deserves to go through something like this. I know I am going to relive every moment of that awful day when we found out we had lost him even stronger as the anniversary approaches, even though I relive it most days anyway. The empty feeling that everyone talks about is still there for me and I think it always will be, but it has become something that I am more able to carry with me as I have strengthened my faith this past year. Thank God for my boyfriend who helped me see that what happened to us was an opportunity to get closer to God and not to distance myself because I was so devastated and angry and lost.
At some point, one of my friends reminded me that God gives His hardest battles to His strongest soldiers. That doesn't make this any easier to deal with, but maybe it reminds us to keep being strong for ourselves, our partners, and our angels most of all.
Thanks in advance for any ideas you have about remembering my biggest blessing on his 1st anniversary. <3 xoxoxo
I lost my son Lucas at 21 weeks on Dec 22 2017. We're a day shy of the 6 month anniversary of his birth. I feel so alone. I feel like it was acceptable while it was still fresh to talk about it, but since it's been 6 months it's no longer OK. I was laying in bed tonight and I realized he'd be almost a month old now and I lost it. I left my sleeping husband to cry on the couch. I picked up my...
I had a stillbirth on 17th March 2018 . It's been 2 months since I gave birth to my sweet little baby girl. Her face pops in My memories at many unexpected moments and the tears start gushing out. People try to console me saying time is the Best healer.... But then I don't understand people when they say that I have got to move on.....when I remember all the things that we had planned for her....
