October 15th is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day

This post is dedicated to all of my friends and family who have lost children at infancy or pregnancy.

Almost one year ago I miscarried my second pregnancy. My husband wanted to wait to tell everyone but I wanted to shout it form the roof tops. What could go wrong? The first pregnancy went off without a problems! Seven weeks into my pregnancy I miscarried. I did not want to talk to anyone I just wanted it to go away and try again. Well we did, and today I am 17 weeks along with my third pregnancy. I thank the Lord every day for this pregnancy and pray that we will have a healthy baby.
October 15th is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day

I have only slipped away into the next room.
I am I, and you are you,
Whatever we were to each other, that we are still.

Call me by the old familiar name.
Speak of me in the easy way which you always used.
Put no difference into your tone.
Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow.
Laugh as we always laughed
At the little jokes that we enjoyed together

Play, smile, think of me, pray for me.

Let my name be ever the household word that it always was.
Let it be spoken without an effort,
Without the ghost of a shadow behind it.

Life means all that it ever meant.
It is the same as it ever was.
There is absolute and unbroken continuity.

What is death but a negligible accident?
Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight?
I am but waiting for you, for an interval,
Somewhere very near,
Just around the corner.

All is well.

(Henry Scott Holland)
