I can remember the day like it was yesterday... taking test after test, slowly watching the line get darker. we were so excited. we had been trying for a little while and didn't know it would be that hard the second time. i mean the first was a beautiful accident.
we started telling family and scheduled our first appointments. calculated the due date. joked about possible names. even bought a few unisex outfits.
after just two weeks of bliss just knowing i was carrying our second child, i started to cramp... then i started to spot... and i went to the emergency room where they did ultrasounds and told me they couldn't find a heartbeat.
ive never shared this so publicly but i know that so many women, couples, families go through the same thing. the problem is that most of us suffer alone, in silence, like its something to be ashamed of.
october 15th is pregnancy and infant loss awareness day.. however i want you to know that you can talk about it any day you choose. its not shameful. its not a burden you need to carry on your own. its okay to grieve. its something you'll never forget but in time, you will heal. <3
Everyone meet bill! bill was a wonderful gentleman that i had the privilege of working with for five years before he passed away. i supported him and his family through his move from a senior care facility in vernon to one in lumby bc. my presence during the move also gave his family a piece of mind as they lived out of town. i adored my visits with bill, which typically involved conversations about life and sweet treats from the local bakery. one of my favourite things about my job is the type of connections i get to make with people! please give me a shout if you are looking for a companion for your loved ones! #blessed#vernonbc#lumbybc#carefacilities#lovemyjob#foreverinmyheart#companionship#karenslovinghands
