I've been behind on a couple of the posts this week...some of them, I feel like I couldn't really post anything about yet at this point...But here's to catching up a little bit?
Day 19--A Project
Mom and I have been talking about doing something to remember Luke with...We're just not sure where to start. It'll probably be a bit artsy, but we haven't really nailed anything down yet. In the meantime though, THIS is my project. For me. I've been a blogger for a long time now...I don't put it out there for the world to see anymore. But for this blog, I feel like putting it out there for anyone else that's going through this pain could only help someone. I know that I've found comfort in reading other baby-loss moms' blogs--Knowing that they're farther along in the grief process--but they're still going. They have families. They still remember their babies, but they've found a way to do that and continue on living.
It's also kind of serving as a way for me to...think right now. I used to mess around with coding a long time ago, so it's sort of fun and a challenge for me to customize, etc, right now. Maybe that's getting me ready to go back to work in some way?
But if I can help someone else feel better, that makes me feel better.
Day 20--A Charity/Organization
I've said it many times, but I'm so thankful for the OC Walk to Remember. The day everything happened...we found out about them at the hospital. They fund training for nurses at hospitals in the area who are taking care of patients like us at the hospital. They provide things for you at the hospital that you probably weren't expecting to need. They fund support groups to help the grief process in this situation, and they host an annual 5K in Tustin. This year we raised over $5000 for them, and I can't be more proud. This is not a club or organization you want to join, necessarily, but when you find yourself in it...you'll be glad they exist.
