Now a little update on me to answer some of the emails and comments I have had lately. I still have bad days. It has been 5 weeks ago today since I found out my sweet baby passed away and it still hurts almost as bad as the day I found out. I think I am surprised at the pain....how long it has lasted without letting up much. There are days that I am busy and I feel like the day passes more easily than others, and I was proud last week when I went two days without crying....but it didn't last. It hurts to tell strangers when they ask that I have three children when my heart knows that there are five, but I can't say it because I can't talk about it....it's too much. I can say that I have learned a lot through this two year battle....I've learned to not take fertility for granted...it is truly a gift from God, I have learned that I am stronger and weaker than I thought I was, I'm leaning on God more than I ever have and learning that he loves to be needed just like I do as a Mother, I have also learned that having bad times is what makes you fully appreciate the good times. Keep the prayers coming and know that this hurting mama needs them badly. Thank you. I Love you all, Samantha
