I will always remember, treasure and be grateful for Sarai. It is true, that she passed away, but if we hadn’t continued the pregnancy, we would have missed out on amazing moments of feeling her kick, speaking to her, and loving her.
… because we are here, giving each other the hope, courage and respect that we need as women and mothers to PERSEVERE. We are witnesses to the fact that going through the difficulties was in every way worth it. And there are no regrets, only a deep, real, and lasting GRATITUDE.
You’re invited to read a daily account of some of the precious moments I share with my children. I am recording these moments for myself, for them, and also for those of you who wonder how motherhood will ENRICH your life…
Going through feelings of doubt and fear when carrying another human being is heart-wrenching. But we can lighten the load for each other by SHARING our experiences. It may just make all the difference to another mother and her baby.
