A quick hello!

I have a moment, so I'm about to head over to you guys new posts. (btw..I read every post of all of the people I 'follow') I didn't want to be TOO far behind when I get my new modem.
Before I started this blog, I read quite a few regularly. I mostly read blogs written by women that had lost babies. I started with Carly's blog ( and found many of you through her. The first thing I would go to in those early days was the birth stories. I would read and cry and relate and comment. It was so healing to read and know that I was not alone, by far, in most of the things I was or still am feeling.
I mentioned a while back that I was going to write Zoe's birth story. Writing it all down will be difficult, but I feel it's worth it. For my own healing and for the possibility of helping someone else, I'm going to write it all down. It will be in increments, and I will have to use my crummy digital camera, but I'm going to open up about Zoe's arrival and too short life. I hope you guys will read along and I hope I help a soul or two along the way.
I hope you all had a great Memorial Day and I'll 'see' you guys in a few days!

Take your time writing Zoe's birth story. I wrote it early, and it was incredibly hard, but I'm so glad I did it. I'll be reading along and sending you much strength and grounding as you write. XO

It's very difficult opening up those wounds again Lindsay, but it is healing. I'm the same as you, when Calvin died, I started reading blogs, I started with Sweet/Salty and then found Carly's through there and then of course Glow in the Woods. Everyone's story is different yet tells the same tale, of the indescribable pain of babyloss...your story will no doubt help someone else going through it. I'm glad you're back...Hugging you.

It's nice to have you back in blog land.
I will definately keep up with the story of Zoe-Beth. A few days ago, I wrote up a post on the story of my oldest son Caleb. It was not easy to write. It took me about four hours to write it all out. I wanted to do it in a way that the reader would be able to feel what I was feeling. Anyway, if you get a few minutes, stop by and visit my blog.... I haven't heard from you in a while:) Hope your doing well.
