In Hope, Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day, speak your truth

6 years ago on December 26, I lost my first pregnancy. My first baby. My first experience of motherhood.

Today I reflect on so many things, like the darkness that nearly swallowed me. But I also reflect on what that loss brought me.

That loss brought me light—It brought me to where I am today. It led me on a healing journey unlike I have experienced; one that I will forever be grateful for. 

Loss changes you. It changed me. If I could tell myself anything on that heartbreaking day 6 years ago, it would be this:
“You will be different. But perhaps you needed to be”

From darkness, light CAN seep in. Comment below what LIGHT has come your way after loss
