Just Under A Month Away

This time of year is always very difficult for me.  i can still remember it all like yesterday although it was 3 years ago.  I remember the excitement that after my second child was born full term and healthy – and after going through 4 more miscarriages I was pregnant again.

I passed my ‘worry time’ of 8 weeks and was happy and excited.

I relaxed.

& then it happened.

This time of year is the worst and i am dreading April 24th – the 3rd anniversary of  Triton’s “birth”.

My kids want to have a birthday party for him.  They are at the age where they talk about Triton (they are now 5, 4 & 2) because of his statue and tree we have in our room.  I love that they ask questions about him – i love that they show they care.

It’s still hard.

I miss him.
