I was so naïve.  I was so unaware of how common miscarriage was.  I knew a few people that had miscarried and I was sad for them, but I couldn’t imagine what that loss was like.  I never thought it would happen to me.  1 in 4 women miscarry, and in between Hayden and Halli I would be the 1.  I have been running the idea of sharing my story for months.  What to share, what to leave out?  Do I … [Read more...]

I've even had a few people ask me what I'm asking for as a push present on my facebook … [Read more...]
