As we say goodbye to 2012, I would like to take the opportunity to give thanks to many...
To you all, those who keep up to date here on my blog as well as our 'likers' on Facebook, for joining us this year and for helping
to lend support to one another, we appreciate you beyond words. I wish
from the bottom of my heart that this group was not a much needed part
of your life or that of a loved one but am grateful for the opportunity
to be a small part in your comfort and
healing as well as a part of helping you help a family member or friend
through a very difficult time in their life.
A big thank you
to my co-leader Jennifer for helping to make this group a reality. We
shared many doubts, fears and tears in the beginning stages but I know I
can speak for us both when I say that those feelings have been
overshadowed with gratitude towards you all for making this group a
safe, comforting, empathetic and caring space for women and families who
have been struck by the tragic loss of one or many precious babies who
have left their lives too soon.
We have Galit Rodan (The
Yellowknifer), Diana Carolina (CKLB Radio), as well as Allison Devereaux
(CBC Radio) to thank for approaching us and giving our stories, our
cause and our group a voice.
We would also like to thank the
Stanton Territorial Health Authority, the Yellowknife Health and Social
Services Authority, the Yellowknife Primary Care Centre and the Frame
Lake Community Health Clinic for their outstanding encouragement and
support as they circulate our F2F information to those in need.
And a huge thank you to my family for being so very supportive, encouraging, as well as flexible in giving me all that I needed to make this group run smoothly and with success.
I wish you all a gentle, happy, healthy, wonderful new year. I hope
that 2013 brings you all that you wish for... and then some.
With thanks beyond measure,
