I apologise if this is not allowed, but I honestly couldn't think of a more appropriate place... [03 Apr 2008|10:19pm]

Just a brief overview... for those who remember me.. I am a miscarriage survivor of my first pregancy in March '07. I found out I was pregnant in Dec '06, diagnosed with missed miscarriage Jan '07 (8-10 wks), and finally miscarried naturally March '07 (15 weeks, 6 days).

This year, I have been getting more active and losing weight (12 pounds since Jan 1st) . My New Year's Resolution was to participate in a 5K and complete it, which I did on Jan 1st. And now I am hooked. I am working on my third 5K on April 20th. It is for March for Babies (March of Dimes). It makes me feel great and proud that I am going to be walking for babies all over the world. Babies of the past, present, and future. My angel baby, YOUR angel babies.

The March of Dimes has changed the name of its biggest event to March for Babies. It's a great change because it makes it very clear exactly who I am walking for -- all babies. I am very excited to be a part of the “first” March for Babies; please support my participation.

Although the name of this signature event changed, the mission did not. The March of Dimes champions the needs of moms and babies in our community and across the nation. The money we raise for March for Babies will support lifesaving research, services, education and advocacy that help babies get a healthy start.

Please help by donating today!

The mission of March of Dimes is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth, and infant mortality.

I don't know about the rest of you, many of you I have met at one time or another and you have other children.. so I know that there is something for you when you wake up in the morning. While I know it does not take the place of the baby lost.. just.. sorry, bear with me.

My Kattie needs to know I remember she is a mother even though Destyne is gone. Would it be appropriate to make her a card and sign it from Destyne?

Last year it just came and went and we did flowers and a necklace, but Kattie has enough jewelry and this year well.. it just seems so hard and I don't want to ever let her feel like we have forgotten.

Does anyone have any ideas of what they are doing, or comments about the signing of a Mothers Day card from the baby?

Am I Not A Mother?

by Gail Fasolo

Am I not a mother
On this Mother's Day?
I had a baby, but she's gone.
Death took her away.

Hopes and dreams have vanished
a happy time turned cold.
My motherhood-where is it now?
Gone? Or put on hold?

Am I not a mother
even though my child died?
Does anyone know my heartbreak
or the anguish felt inside?

Special gifts and flowers
but who'll remember me?
As I stand and shed some tears
at your graveside where I'll be.

Mother's Day-so painful
but I will make it through.
Yes, I am a mother!
but God takes care of you.
