A Year Later

A year ago today, I started writing this blog. I remember sitting on the floor sobbing as I typed my first few words. I had no idea the journey I would go on. The journey I am still on. I smile more now, cry less and still miss my little boy. I guess that's really the best I can hope for.

* Today we finally got the results we have been waiting for- after six long weeks, Eden has a normal platelet count. And now, I can exhale.

Such courage it took to get here. So glad you're here. In this place now. Thank you for sharing your journey, Ashleigh.

And because you did write those words, you shone a light for me at the end of a very long, dark tunnel that I thought had no way out. I will be forever grateful for you and those words.
Thinking of you and Owen and exhaling for Eden too:)

Glad to hear Eden is doing well. And while I hate the circumstances under which we "met", I am glad you are here to give me hope.

Such good news to hear Eden is doing so well. Her birth story had me in tears. I'm so happy for you and your family Ashleigh, so glad that all this has worked out well.

Thank you for writing and for being here and sharing Owen and now Eden with us all. Much love x

Ashleigh - I read your profile and felt like I was reading my own. 32 years old...check, married 8 plus years...check, a five year old...yup, a three year old...of course! The only difference is Emma Grace was stillborn in 2000. But I live the journey too and will definately be back to walk the next year with you.

One year, whew - that is a big mark.
