I know it seems as if maybe I talk about Alex too much, after all he was in my life only 9 months, all spent inside of me, but how precious is that thought anyway? Alex’s entire life was spent underneath my heart. I felt every kick, cherished every movement. I spent 9 months day dreaming of my baby, my first baby nonetheless. I had been wanting a baby forever. And then the unexpected happened, and nobody wanted to talk about it.
I think if I had been allowed to talk freely about Alex back then I would possibly be healed in a probably healthier way now, alas, I still feel I am in a good place at this point, and the thought that there is a day in the year that I feel I CAN talk about him means the world to me.
While I do think we’ve made strides in awareness, I still believe that losing a baby is still considered an invisible loss. I wrote Alex’s story (quite lengthy in its own right) as the beginning of the book I am writing about the life of my son Nicholas, who was born 21 months after Alex was stillborn and diagnosed at birth with an incurable and possibly lethal skin disorder called Recessive Dystrophic Epidermolysis Bullosa.
In honor of this day, I am offering the book LOSING ALEX free… TODAY ONLY! Here is the link below…
Please cherish every moment you have with your children, and be kind to those that had to bury their angels. There is truly no more heartbreaking loss.
Love and Light,
