August 19th Day of Hope is the organization that gave me the inspiration to give back. This year the focus wasn't solely on donating care packages (although many people still did), the focus was on speaking out and breaking down walls about miscarriage and child loss. So yesterday, and today I posted on my facebook about the organization and about Ian. I thought it would make me sad....but strangely, it felt almost empowering! It felt good to publicly say how much I miss Ian. It also felt like maybe, just maybe, people will stop and think...."its not just something that happens, it's a painful loss. The loss of a baby...not just the loss of a pregnancy"....ok,ok so I know that my post probably didn't impact that many people ....but it still felt good.
