I am one of those that came down here every now and then before I lost Marshall...first, Liz was the hostess, and I was in love with Elijah, and Tonya's son is the first stillborn child I've "met"...felt like I knew his story, etc.

Right before we lost Marshall, some ignoramous made some noise about stillborn babies in siggies, and I came down to lend support. I had this strange feeling I was going to be on this board, and read a few topics.

Little did I know....
my thanks to Claire1979 for the awesome siggy!!

I hadn't found this site until I lost Noah. In addition, I had never known anyone who experienced a stillbirth.

Thank you to Jaidynsmum for my beautiful siggie!

I think I was down in this section once when I first joined JM, before I even knew I was having twins. I felt so horrible that I couldn't look and "ran away". Little did I know I would become so dependent on the girls here. It sucks to be here, but I'm happy to have you ladies in my life. I wouldn't want to not you know you girls.

I came here when I lost Avery.
Then I left when they said I had to take her picture out of my siggie.
But came back when the debate started over whether we could/should have angel pics allowed.

Even when I don't have another board to lurk, I'll always be here.
You guys are the bomb!!!!

With much love!

I never lurked here really because I didn't know about JM. But in the days between the horrible ultrasound (Friday) and Ethan's induction (Monday) I started lurking at a lot of sites, including this one.

I just want to say that I have tried out half a dozen boards like this one (including AHC and MISS) and they are either way too quiet or way too depressing. I like that we can talk about everything here. Quite frankly, I had to leave the MISS forums because everybody there was too scary.

Thank you Vicki for my awesome siggy!!

I had a firend that lost her son at 20 weeks, and found a few things like persoanl pages to read about stillbirth. I would rea the stories and look at the babies. Then I stopped. After I was pregnant ith Evie I lurked again. I lurked here, I saw about the debate about posting pictures of your (I guess our now) angels. I honestly felt like i would belong here one day. I thought it would be Evangeline, but it wasn't.

Then I got pregnant again, very quickly afte rhaving Eve, and I lurked again. I followed Heather and read about Marshall and then I looked at every single post in the picture thread. Then it happened and now I am a member of "The Club" too. I knew it all along that I would end p here, but I didn't know it too. It is a terrible feeling to know that, and then hope tht you ar being paranoid only to have it come true.

I'm like Rebecca, I didn't find JM until after Cora. Honestly, I didn't lurk at any place like this.
Thanks to babydoll213 for the siggy! My kids' blog Cora's blog

I didn't even know of JM until many months after I lost Katrina. I found it through the stillbirth babies ~ forever in our hearts facebook group I joined that Jenn created. So I was never a lurker.
