Baby Loss

I've been wanting to write a post for a few days now to explain why this blog will NOT be about my pregnancy. It is with much sadness that I ask you to go send love to my sweet friend, Summer, as she has lost her baby. Her year has been so hard with so much loss and her spirit and beauty continue to shine through all of it! Please send her some love

This is why my blog isn't about baby, because there are still so many people hurting, losing, and missing babies. IF is not something that goes away, you don't forget it because you get pregnant, you don't forget the babies you've lost, and your heart never stops feeling for people who experience what you've experienced!

If people want to follow my pregnancy I'll be making another blog soon, but I can't have this one causing pain to those who already hurt so badly!



  1. I'm so sorry for your friend's loss.

    I understand the need for a new blog. When I created my blog, I never really thought ahead to the day when we'd be parenting and what I would do with my blog. I can't imagine it changing it into a parenting I'll probably start a new one as well.

  2. Very thoughtful and kind.

    I find that i can't shield myself from this. We know of so many babies to come this year, and i know we will surely hear of many more. Even God doesn't shield us, as my niece had her child 3 weeks early - on the anniversary of the loss of our first.

    My word this year is "acceptance" as this is what i must do. I pray for you and your wonderful to come family addition. I pray for your friend and for all of us continuing to deal with loss. Please don't neglect to celebrate your joy! It is hope to so many. :)

  3. Very thoughtful. I got off facebook for a long time after we lost our 2 because it was just to hard to see post after post of pregnancy stuff from friends. I was happy for their joy but dealing with my own stuff at the time. I think to have a blog specifically for baby stuff is thoughtful and fun and exciting for you to journal your exciting new venture!! Looking forward to reading all your precious baby updates. :)

  4. Stopping by to send her some love.

  5. sending you love on my way to send your friend some love and support.

  6. I think it's a very thoughtful and sweet thing for you to do. Kind and compassionate... .that's the Deni I've come to know.

    Much love and many hugs to you!
