October 15th is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day

Please take a moment to remember Cole and Lina, and all the babies who never got to open their eyes to see the world or to leave the hospital, or to take their first steps, or to grow up and be the people they were supposed to be. Please send a prayer or a positive thought to all their families who miss them so much.

    Dear Patrice,

    You and your babies, Annika and Esref, and your mother and dad are often in my thoughts. You spring up out of nowhere and I wonder what brought the images forward. I guess it is the unfairness of it all and wanting to bring back what could have been. As I approach the golden years (I refuse to be a senior citizen), I realize that the seemingly routineness of life and the people I have shared friendships with now take on a richness like gold threads that weave their patterns in a tapestry.

    In their very short lives, Cole and Lena brought out the very best in people. That is something we can all model and aspire to.

About Me

I'm a grieving mom. I have one beautiful daughter, Annika, who's 3 years old now (born 12/28/04). I also had twins, Lina and Cole, on 10/04/07, born at just 26 weeks. We lost Cole after just 23 days due to complications related to his prematurity. Fiesty little Lina overcame so much and just when she was getting ready to come home with us, suddenly had a complication unrelated to her prematurity and passed away on January 11, 2008. This blog is about getting through it. More...
