About five years ago I had the idea to make a video in honor of National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day which is observed annually on October 15th.
Each year the date would near and I would day-dream about the the photo montage I had imagined, the songs I might use and what it would be like.
Then October 15th would come and go, but still no video.
Most years I mark October 15th by lighting a candle in honor and memory of our daughter/sister Molly and Babies Benson at 7:00 p.m. I also have acknowledged the date here on my blog and/or Facebook with posts, photos and status updates.
A few weeks ago I decided that this would be the year, that I was going to do it and what follows is a labor of love that was extremely therapeutic for me.
Knowing that ten years after we began trying to expand our family that our journey through secondary infertility and loss has been resolved made creating and now sharing this video even more momentous and meaningful.
To all those who have walked with, prayed for, supported, encouraged and believed in Bob, Sean, Babies Benson, Molly, Abby and me, words will never be enough to express how grateful we are.
But still I say thank you.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Thank you for being you and for being there for us.
I hope that this video will show you how blessed we feel to have each of our children in our family, including those who are here living with us and our babies who are always in our hearts.
We have learned and continue to learn so much from all of our children and intend to do our best to make them proud going forward.
For those reading and watching who have also lost babies, today and everyday, I send healing thoughts and prayers your way as you honor the lives and memories of your children goon to soon. I wish you peace, love and comfort on this bittersweet day.
