2 more..

2 more daughters have entered this world this week. At least in my direct social circle.
The girl I had mentioned earlier in the post about my mom had her little girl, she drank, she smoked pot, she got busted for shoplifting at 8 months pregnant and her daughter is just fine,

A friend/residence flatmate in university just had her first daughter on Monday, I am happy for her, she named her girl Hannah Mary Munroe, Munroe being the last name of the babe’s dad.

I am happy when people I deem deserving, people who appreciate what they have and take care of themselves have children, I just get pissed when people who don’t do, and I am left empty armed.

At least they had girls—I just keep praying for more girls, I want Evan to be the only boy for a while. Dave’s sister is due with her second child anyday now. I hope it’s another girl.

“Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.” — Albert Einstein. When it feels like your world has been shattered, and you have reached rock bottom, you must make a choice: Stay where you are and fade away, or keep moving forward. Thankfully I chose to move forward and was blessed with the two most wonderful children after the death of my first in early labor. Things are looking up.

  1. I am really so sorry for your loss. I have read your blog for quite a while, now, and I cheered when you bought the house. I teared up every time I read about Evan, and I ached to tell you to hang in there. I lost two babies, both from miscarriage. Although it is different from seeing your child, it is a great loss none the less. Both miscarriages were after struggling with infertility and finally getting pregnant with rounds of Chlomid and Provasi shots, and both were a shock when one day the heart just stopped beating. But after each miscarriage, I had a healthy, beautiful son! It can and will happen!
    I also felt angry when I saw a baby with someone I deemed “not worthy”, but I eventually realized that it is not my place to hold judgment over others. That child is with that mother for a reason. I sometimes wonder why it is so, but as soon as I learned to drop my anger and jealousy over what others so easily had, I became pregnant. The whole “relax” thing really does work! Worry not about others, expect no other child to live up to Evan’s memory, and keep opening your heart to the wonderful possibilities that I am sure are coming your way! :^)

    • Thank you for your glimmer of hope. I will do whatever it takes to make it happen again, its more of a when rather then an if, The only I face is, If the baby makes it this time….

  2. I know exactly what you mean. My friend’s little sister (16) had a healthy baby boy, through pot smoking and drinking, decided to keep the baby and now she basically ignores him most days.
    And I hoped (and still hope) for boys all the time- it’s just too painful to see baby girls.
    Thinking of you and Evan,
