I honestly don’t know where I would be right now without you – yes you. The people who read my words and share their own, the people who offer up encouragement and advice and kinship. The people who abide with me through my grief and those who are also grieving. Those who don’t know the pain of losing a child, but are here trying to understand the huge rollercoaster that I (or maybe somebody else that you know) am going through.
I hope that my words and feelings have helped or inspired people along the way. I hope that this space has done for others what so many other blogs have done for me: offered a place of understanding and also of hope for the future.
I would love it if you would let me know in a comment or an email if this blog has touched you in someway. Share with me what it has meant for you to read about Finley’s life. Let me know if my words have helped you or comforted you or even given you an insight into a part of life that not many people are willing to acknowledge. It is so nice to receive encouragement and to know the positive things that this tragedy may be doing for others. Please please let me know.
And now for the blog hop. Fifteen months. Those words and that amount of time don’t even make sense to me. Time no longer passes in the normal way. It seems to go so fast, and yet it still feels like I was only just pregnant with Finley and expecting all of the joy and happiness that would come with his birth. It feels like just yesterday that his life and our future was torn away in an instant. And yet here we are.
