Why I still read others stories of baby loss
I have a support website that I have been going to since 2 weeks after Grace died. I go there every day. I read the stories of other mamas who have lost their babies and I cry. Sometimes I write in to support them, let them know it does get better than those excruciating early days. Say their babies names and let them know that they are not forgotten. It is taxing, but cathartic. I go so that through sharing in these women's grief I can connect to my grief and in some way connect to Grace. I also hope that in some small way I can help those mamas new to this crappy journey, so that they know they have an army of supporters and that they are anything but alone. Grace feels so far away sometimes, but those few minutes a day that I read on that website we are close again. Baby Grace I miss you and love you every day.
