Humbled


I know I have said it before, but I can't say it enough....

I am constantly overwhelmed by the care, compassion and support that permeates through this baby lost community. I have "met" so many women, most living miles, even oceans away, that have selflessly offered understanding, kindness and heartwarming goodness. All of this is offered amidst their own suffering.

I am humbled beyond words.

The experience of losing Nicholas has brought to light the genuine, kind, spirit of others. Something that so often goes unnoticed.

Last week I received a box of beautiful baby clothes for Little Miss Sunshine. They came from a fellow Canadian, Margaret . We are following a similar path, in terms of timing. She lost her precious Calvin just over a year ago, just as we did Nicholas. For her to go out of her way and think of us as Little Miss Sunshine's arrival approaches is nothing short of spectacular. I will treasure these beautiful, pink outfits and think of Margaret and her family each time our baby wears them.

Thank you so much, Margaret. Your kindness has touched my heart deeply.

I love Margaret, she really is someone who genuinely cares for others. She sent me the only Christmas card I have been given this year. It's on my mantle and I look at it everyday....
Love you too...

Absolutely amazing. No one really wants to belong here-but if we have to-it is so full of love and hope even in the darkest hours and days of peoples lives.
Thinking of you and LIttle Miss Sunshine :) and Margaret, too.

Oh Lea, thank you. It means so very much to me to be able to share in your joy and hope for the safe arrival of Little Miss Sunshine. As well, I would imagine how exciting it must be for you to be execting your first girl. As a mother of two little girls (and my sweet boy angel in heaven), I know how much fun it is buying cute girly clothes and doing hair into pretty styles. You have also done so much to support me, I can't tell you how very much the arrival of Calvin's angel wings on his angelversary meant to me. They are very cherished. Sending you hugs...

Margaret is one of the most giving souls I have ever encountered in my life. How sweet of her to put things together for your little miss sunshine. Her heart is so kind and giving, she humbles me too.
