Hi, ladies. I've been gone for a couple weeks. I guess the shock and disbelief of my loss really wore off and coming here became hard. I'm still not sure that I'm totally ready to be back. I can't even bring myself to lurk right now. I know you all can understand. I really stopped by to check-in and say 'Hello' and let you know I'm okay...relatively.

Some of my FB friends have encouraged me to share my loss story in detail. I didn't want to do it on FB, so I started a blog. I posted my stillbirth story last night. If you are interested in reading it, the link is in my siggy. If you have siggies turned off, here it is: My Blog. It's not an easy read, as I have been told, but those same people appreciated being able to read it. Not all details are in there because I don't think that they all need to be included. One specific detail I have only shared with my husband and my mother and I will likely never speak of it again. But, this is the story, in its entirety as I want to share it. It's almost 4,000 words long, and if you get through it I would love it if you left a comment. Something short and simple will suffice. I still need that support, yk?

Just know that I have not abandoned all of you, and I do miss you. I hope you all are well, and having fun times in this pre-holiday season. XOXO!

I will put it aside to read later tonight when the kids are calm. I was shocked when I finally wrote out Calypso's story it was 3,068 words. So I definitely don't mind reading your story too.

I know that writing really helped me process everything and work through some of the grief. I hope it has the same effect for you.
We all understand needing to take a break so just pop in when you can. We are here for you.
