December Update

I have been a bit of a blog neglector lately. I feel bad for that – but with Christmas coming up, life has been so busy. I was sick for over a week and then it’s been pretty manic. Christmas balls, friend’s gigs, shopping, lots of work.
And then there is a constant build up of sadness as the holidays get closer. A huge mixture of excitement for a holiday I love so much, and dread that it should be our first with our own little one at home. I will write more on that later.
I did the draw for the stocking giveaway and the winner is Melissa W. I emailed her on the day that the contest closed and have yet to hear back. So Melissa if you are reading this, if you can get back to me soon I’d love to be able to try and get it to you before Christmas.
I’ve recently written and had an article shared over at Circle of Moms that has been getting a lot of views. It’s been a wonderful opportunity to share my experience with others. I am so grateful that Circle of Moms thought it was worthy of sharing. They advised that it is a topic that isn’t spoken about often enough and I so agree.
I miss Finley today. I had the chance to share some pregnancy photos and photos of him at work today. It makes me swell with pride to show him off. And I also think it helps people put into perspective just how much we lost. People always seem so surprised when they see him – I always hear how perfect his is, as though that wasn’t expected. I don’t know what people would expect.
Anyways, just thought I’d share an update. I will post more soon.

  1. I’m so sorry that you lost your dear Finley. I lost my daughter at 22 weeks gestation this past August and am still reeling.

    What a great article on Circle of Moms! Thanks for help getting the word out there and helping to decrease the silence and fear around babyloss.

  2. I have looked and could not find your article. I want to read it! Hugs and more hugs to you as you suffer the loss of precious Finley. I like The Circle of Moms!

  3. Lisa, I am reading your book on my Kindle. It is so good. I have been glued to it. It has also depressed me for the past 24 hours. You had such great support! It is true, that I had none! I feel like the only mom who didn’t have support. I think that is why I still grieve 37 years later. Please read some of my blog. I don’t think my blog is helping anyone, just telling about my experience. Maybe I should stop b/c no one wants to hear a stillbirth story so sad.

  4. Hello,
    I am trying to figure out if I may be the winner of the stocking contest. Please e-mail me at Thanks

  5. I am with you on the Christmas thing it is so hard isn’t it, I too LOVE Christmas some days I am so excited, others I want to cancel the whole blooming thing. I am just hoping that for most of Christmas day I am excited rather than wishing it to be cancelled xx
