We all worked on our projects together, we talked about the precious babies we all miss so much, and we had a good time. The crazy part is that the woman who was helping us from Color Me Mine, told us that her mother had lost a baby boy at 31 weeks gestation. His name is Gabriel and I wrote his name on my heart when she told me about him. Another little one, gone too soon. It's amazing how many people are affected by miscarriage, stillbirth, and baby loss. I wish it were not so.
Here are some photos from our little painting party. (We should have taken a group photo...duh!)
After painting, Bryan and I went out to a nice dinner at Cheesecake Factory. We haven't gone out for a long time. It was good, but as always, hard. A table for two should be a table for three.
I'm so glad we did something to commemorate this day. On the drive home (and, let's be honest, for much of the evening after we got home,) I cried for my little Samuel. I'm trying the best I can to make good out of so much bad, but the truth is I don't want any of this. I just want him.I just miss him so very much. I love him forever, my sweet little bunny.
As for the letters from friends, it's a lot to share. Please click here to read them. I really can't say how special these are to me. Thank you so much to everyone who participated. They mean so much <3
