Day 9 - A photo taken after your loss

Day 9 - A photo taken after your loss.

This photo was taken 2 days after I found out that I miscarried Peyton. I had signed up for our local craft show months before hand and decided that weekend I was still going to do it because what was the point of sitting around and crying? So I did the craft show. I hosted a chalk drawing area. You can see in the background the kids next to may tent. That was the chalk area. I have another photo I took when there were lots of family and kids drawing in the area.

It's amazing that I survived it. I didn't cry at all that day, I don't remember if I did at night. I was numb. Still in shock that it had even happened. Astounded that the horror had actually repeated itself...that this was my life.


So tomorrow is the walk to remember. We collected over $400 in donations from friends and family! I am so honored to be able to give the Western New York Perinatal Bereavement Network (WNYPBN) the donations tomorrow. I am glad they will be able to help so many families going through this grief. Tomorrow will be a sad day for sure but that is okay. 

I received my Faces of Loss shirt in time for the walk :) :) :) I was so happy because I NEVER thought I would get it - I JUST ordered it on Monday so WOW that's pretty impressive!! :) I have posted pics of all the stuff I will wear tomorrow - I will also get the sweatshirt I bought with the Walk to Remember logo and all on it tomorrow. My husband said "you're going to wear all of that" and I replied "Well if there is ever a time to be a walking miscarriage survivor I would say the walk is that time". So hey :) why not? I'm gonna represent the heck outta my babies darn it all! :) :) :)
