A Beautiful Poem

I found this poem today on a website I frequently visit when I have time. Anyone who has lost a baby will understand how profound it is. The devastation of a miscarriage NEVER goes away.

~ My Mom is a Survivor ~

My Mom is a survivor, or so I've heard it said.

But I can hear her crying when all others are in bed.I watch her lay awake at night and go to hold her hand.

She doesn't know I'm with her to help her understand.

But like the sands upon the beach that never wash away...I watch over my surviving mom, who thinks of me each day.
She wears a smile for others ... a smile of disguise.

But through Heaven's open door, I see tears flowing from her eyes.

My mom tries to cope with my death to keep my memory alive.

But anyone who knows her knows it's her way to survive.

As I watch over my surviving mom through Heaven's open door...I try to tell her angels protect me forevermore.
I know that doesn't help her... or ease the burden she bears.

So if you get a chance, talk to her... and show her that you care.

For no matter what she says... No matter what she feels.

My surviving mom has a broken heart that time won't ever heal.

Welcome to our new family website!

Hello everyone! Welcome to our family's new website. It will be a little different than Natalie's CaringBridge site, because it'll be a little more personal. Family members and close friends will be able to view the site. There are some things I just can't share on CaringBridge that I'd like family & friends to know about. Feel free to comment on our ramblings. I'll try to keep this updated as much as possible. This is just in the beginning stages. Basically, I was fooling around with it last night while Natalie wouldn't go to sleep. So there's much more to come -- stay tuned. There is a link below that allows you to subscribe to this website -- it will then email you when there are any updates. Enjoy!
