Amazing article

My friend sent me a link to a great PNL story.  The link is:  http://www.jsonline.com/news/opinion/the-heartache-of-infant-loss-131289299.html.  I read it as I was getting ready for the Walk to Remember on Sunday.  On a day that I was already reflecting on my baby and the impact the loss of her has had on my family, that article really hit home.  It made me think about things that I would love to do with my daughter, like taking her out for a Happy Meal or an art class for toddlers. 

If you read the article, make sure to read the reader comments below it.  It amazes me everyday how cold people can be about pregnancy and infant loss.  I know that they just don't get it...how can they if they can make comments like that?  I put the link on my facebook page and a pregnant friend of mine actually commented on how upsetting it was for her and that it ruined her mood for her baby shower later that day.  I didn't know what to say other than it was a link that said infant loss, so why did she click on it to read it if she didn't want to read about infant loss?? 

The Walk to Remember was awesome!  Very beautiful.  If you have pictures that you would like to send, please do!  I will post as many as I can.
