Remembrance

Yesterday we went to our annual Walk to Remember. I cried more that I think I ever have at one of these functions. I am more of a private cryer. I spoke - through a surprising haze of tears. I might post a copy of what I said if I work up the courage...


Candles lit for C., for Julian, for Nicolas, for Stewart, for these twins, for these twins, for this baby. And one for every other baby that I read about, think about, and care about his/her parents. Frankly, if I lit a candle for every baby that I have held in my heart, there wouldn't have been any left for anyone else to light.

I'm so proud of you for speaking, I am sure your words brought comfort and support to those listening.

And thank you for lighting a candle for my little fellow, I am deeply touched.

I am in awe of you for speaking. The THOUGHT of public speaking makes me want to vomit, and makes my heart race with terror. Anyway, I would love to read what you wrote. I am sure it is beautiful. I will be lighting my candle tonite and remembering far far too many babies who aren't here with us.

I would love to read what you said. I know it was beautiful and fitting and touched the hearts of all within earshot. Thinking of C and all of our babies tonight.
