Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month

Who would have thought that I would be joining the millions of grieving parents on today of all days?

I don't have much energy to put into today, but as I have only been without my children for 3 days, I will most heavily be remembering them.

Please join me in lighting a candle this evening for Michael and Alena. I only held them in my arms for a short time, but they have forever made an impact on our lives.

Hugs and kisses to you angels,

mommy and daddy


  1. Thank you for sharing this with us today. I hoping talking about your loss helps you like it has helped me. I love the ultrasound photo, they both look like they are smiling. I never even got photo of my ultrasounds, I guess because we were too focused on talking about the possibility of something being wrong. When I go in for my one month post-D&C check up I will ask for a photo from the ultrasound where baby's heart was still beating.

    I'll be thinking of Michael and Alena when I am out and about tonight.

  2. Consider this done. I will light three candles tonight - two for you, and one for me. I will most definitely be with you there in spirit this evening. Love the four of you.

  3. Even after 4 days, I still have no words. And every new post or comment brings back the tears once again. I expect this for awhile, be easy on yourself and expect it too.
    xoxo always

  4. You are so brave and strong Alissa, both you and Mike. I'm thinking of you both during this difficult time, and know that you are amazing parents and one day you will hold those little spirits in your arms again. My heart aches for you today. Take time, and lean each other.
