Never to take anything for granted....I used to assume, i'd get pregnant and have a baby 9 months later, and that pregnancy loss only happened to other people...Now I know it happens to me, and i'll never take another pregnancy for granted and i'll be thankful for everything that's given to me...Same goes for my health, I never thought i'd have any sort of health problems.

Like Megan said, to take each and every day and make the most of it.

To find joy where joy may be found.

To believe in myself and my body, even when I'd really rather invoke the Lemon Law on it.

To never give up hope because there truly can be a rainbow after the rain.

I'm much stronger than I gave my credit for and have the new attitude that I can face anything.

It takes a village to raise a child and it takes a village to have a good support system. I don't know what I'd do without my support system of family and friends.

There's no shame in RPL and it NEEDS to be talked about. Once I was comfortable I was amazed how many people openned up and shared their stories too. It's amazing how we feel we must suffer in silence.

No person is an island and the isolation from RPL not only affects herself, but her loved ones around her. I turned into a person I'm ashamed to admit and was very bitter for a year. I pushed so many people away and some of those relationships have never fully healed. People don't understand the emotions and the need to isolate (i.e. couldn't go to baby showers or be around pg friends) and I was tired of feeling like the poster child for PRL and having to have people think I was being rude and not having the energy or strength to say why I was withdrawing.

PRL needs to be brought to the forefront. It needs to be discussed and not ignored. Only then will people understand the grief and reasons for our actions.

Very well put, Nykoal! I couldn't have said it better!

What I have learned the most is how strong I ACTUALLY am...It amazes me daily.
God will never put me through more than I can take & I have learned that even though, at times, I thought I might die of a broken heart, I won't.
It has bettered me in so many ways & for that, I am truly thankful.
