Capture Your Grief

Day 1: Sunrise Dedication

Shortly after Zoey died, I found this project: Capture Your Grief.  I’ve decided to participate again. I’ve appreciated the opportunity to reflect on my journey the past two years. I also know this will be a lifelong path to travel and this gives me time to revisit where I’ve been and continue moving forward.

October is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness month.  This morning I attended a ceremony dedicating an “Angel of Hope” statue near me.  I joined with other moms, dads and family members in remembering and honoring our children.  As I was sitting there listening to all the names, it once again occurred to me that this is what I get. I’ll never hear Zoey’s name called as she crosses the stage at her high school graduation.  But I appreciate that I can join this group of other parents in remembering her.  A place where it’s safe to say her name out loud without anyone changing the subject.

I missed the sunrise (something about a drizzly, cool fall morning made me sleep in), but I’ll share a photo of the Angel of Hope in honor of Zoey and all the children we miss every day.  Thinking of you always my sweet girl.
