I think that having 2 wonderful new friends show up to a stranger's house to meet with others who have lost can be considered a success as we formed new friendships, we leaned on one another emotionally as we all bravely shared our stories, and we were able to squeeze in a few smiles and some laughter too.
I am thankful for these ladies who courageously showed up when they weren't sure if it was something they thought they could do. I am thankful that they opened up and let us in on their most private moments, thoughts, and feelings. I am thankful that even though our stories are all very different we were able to accept, validate, and honor one anothers losses as lost lives and much loved children. I am thankful they took a chance and put their trust in us and the service we are providing.
I wish we could have all met under different circumstances however I am pleased that we now have one another to chat with about our babies and our lives since losing them.
Thank you, thank you both.
