Babylost Mother's Day

Today is International Babylost Mother's Day.

I hate that I even know that this holiday exists, much less that I can celebrate it. Holiday? Celebrate? Those two words can't even exist on the same plane as this day.

Real Mother's Day is coming up and it's something I don't even want to think about. I'm a mother, but I'm not a parent, not anymore. I was for all of twenty minutes, once upon a time. Where does that leave me?


  1. You are a beautiful Mother. ((HUGS))

  2. I never realized that such a day exists. My condolences on a day of such sad remembrance.

    I am glad you went on the vacation that you and your husband had planned and I think that the picture of writing Caleb's name and birthday in the sand was breathtaking. The ocean is wise and healing and I hope you found some moments of peace as well as some moments of genuine enjoyment while you were in Aruba.

  3. It leaves you a Mommy...forever. And no one can take that away from you, if you don't let them.
