I believe I am a stronger person because of it. My marriage is stronger because of it. I will be a better mom because of it. I am wiser because of it. More compassionate because of it.
That's my silver lining

Personally, I'm still working on this. There are days when I can find a silver lining but they're rare. I guess maybe I wouldn't have met Traci if it weren't for my losses...that's a silver lining...

Aww, thank you! Had it not been for mine, I would not have met you. DJ jokes that he should transfer to Dulles and I keep telling him he should! LOL

I feel I am a much better Mom for having wanted, and lost. I do not take a single second for granted with Grace.

It's also taught me so much about myself. If you had told me 5 years ago what it would have taken to get to this point, I'm not sure I could have done it. But I'm so glad I did.

LOL If he transferred out here, my husband would be happy and yours would be annoyed. But yea, move out here. You know we have a few Children's Hospitals here.

I would not have met you ladies. And I wouldn't have the kids I do now. It made the difficult journey worth every minute.

If Ethan hadn't died, I wouldn't have gotten pregnant again. If we hadn't said goodbye to babies B and C, Grant wouldn't have survived to term.
