This Blog Has Moved!

I moved my blog on New Years Day, 2010. If you haven't come to see my new blog, head on over HERE now. This blog will be available for archive reading but I won't be posting here anymore. I hope you'll join me at my new bloggy home!

p.s. I am slowly but surely moving all the blogs I follow over to the new blog, so if I haven't come to visit you for a while, my advice is to leave a comment on my new blog, so I don't miss you in the shuffle!

About Me

My photo
I am a bereaved mother and wife. I began this blog to help me look for the "good things" in life after my daughter, "Babybear", died in July 2005. Three years later, her daddy, my husband, "Bear", died in November 2008. (You'll find a link to their stories on my blog) And now, as difficult as it is, I continue to look for the good things in my life as I learn my new normal with my pup, "Furrybear", at my side. And the angels on my shoulder...

Heartbreaking...

In the last couple months, I have come across 3 heartbreaking stories in blogville of new moms dying shortly after their babies were born.

First, I came across this blog recently when I saw a link to a tutorial and clicked it only to find out the blogger had passed away just days before. Her baby was 14 days old.

Then, Jenners, my September Follower of the Month, posted this post about her friend. Her baby was just born.

And then tonight, I saw a post requesting prayers for this blogger, only to find out she, too, has passed away. Her baby was less than 1 week old.

As a bereaved mom, I can sympathize that they will not see their babies grow up. The difference is, their babies WILL grow up, just, not with them. I don't know any of these women but they all seem to be very loving women who wanted their babies as much as I wanted mine, and yet, they, too, can not be with their babies.

As a bereaved wife, I can sympathize for their husbands.

Sometimes, life is just too sad...

... and I wonder... what's the point?

It is so strange that you came upon all these stories around the same time. I wish it wasn't so ... it is hard enough to believe it happened to my friend and then to see it happening to others just breaks my heart. Any way you look at it -- the mother dying or the baby dying -- it is so horrible and wrong and sad. Try not to dwell on this. It will only make you sad and there really are no answers as to why these horrible things -- like what happened to them and what happened to you -- happened.

Absolutely heartbreaking. I will say a prayer for all of these families.

So sad. I met a young woman just recently who shared with me (upon learning we'd lost our George during my labour) that her aunt in Alberta died while giving birth - and baby died, too. Praying for all these poor mums as I pray for our lost babes.
