THE MISSION

Welcome Mothers, Fathers, Grandmothers, Grandfathers, Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, Friends and anyone else who needs an ear...Please come with an open heart.

This is a place for anyone who has felt the loss of a child. Treat this as a communication haven regardless of how or when you felt your loss. My definition of loss: miscarriage at any stage, still birth regardless of week gestation, infant death at any month, and loss of a child even if your child was all grown up. For me they all hold the same root of devestation. None are more profound or more "easily" dealt with than another.

Please cry if you need to.
Please connect with others who are in your same space.
Please email me if you feel led to
Please comment so we know what you need
Please tell your story

Intentions

The girls were on vacation last week. Today is a STORM! Potentially, a snow day tomorrow - you know- because vacations can always last just a little longer!

We are having such fun! But, there are lots of things that are NOT getting done - most obviously- my daily blog reading and commentating time. Oh - and I skipped out on Show and Tell for the week. Oh the shame when the teacher looks at me like that!

Please - accept my sincere apology if I haven't popped over for the last week. I'm coming back - soon!

It is my intention to rock the Iron Commentator of ILCW and catch up on my blogroll. Simultaneously, I will organize my house, prepare for taxes, a trip to St. Louis, run the carpool - independently, easily write a few astounding chapters on the book, chug out a few more Exhale columns, and - oh why not - solve world peace while I'm at it!

So, not much to do - really. Ok - I'm off to cook dinner (ha! Asparagus...just for me cause no one else will eat it!!)

Lofty ambitions! Wishing you success as you tackle your "to do" list :)

Good luck getting it all done Cara.

I was wondering how you do it all . . . how many blogs do you have? And you comment all over the place. My to-do list has become a reminder of things I should or want to do instead of a list of things I will actually get done. And I'm okay with that.

Here from ICLW. Best of luck with all of your intentions! I wouldn't be able to do it all, I can't even manage my life without kids. I have no idea what I am going to do when he comes here and home (currently 38 weeks)!

I love asparagus too. Bet it was yummy! Good luck catching up--isn't it funny how hard it becomes to miss a few days of reading your blog roll? I didn't realize what a commitment I was making when I entered this world!
