This was on March 7, 2012. The "Plant Hope" was a gift from another dear friend maybe a year or two after we lost the baby and were really struggling getting pregnant again.
I'm not sure that our tree actually matches the prompt so I will also post a picture of Greg and I after we did the March of Dimes walk. After we got the diagnosis, I spent countless hours on the internet learning about our baby's condition. One of the websites I ended up on was the March of Dimes. I saw that they were having a fundraising walk at the end of April. It felt like an important thing to do. We raised almost $2000. A really good family friend walked with us and our parents were waiting for us at the finish. I honestly don't remember much about the day but I remember feeling good about doing it.
Today's prompt is "Support." If I knew how to make a collage I would make one filled with all the wonderful people in my life who gave me support. People who loved me and held me when I cried, brought us food and flowers, sent cards, took care of my classroom and allowed me to miss 2 weeks of school without a worry, remembered the first anniversary, didn't say dumb things....I could go on and on. Instead of more photos or a collage I don't know how to make , I'll do this: Greg, Mom, Dad, Shirl, Stacy, Anjee, Joanna and Jon, Brad and Boo Boo, Maureen and Jack, Patti, Aunt Linda, Lisa, Kathy, Kathie, Heidi, Carolyn, Kathy, Faith, BK, Julie, June, Jennifer, Jay....and I know there are more. I am so blessed to have lots of support in my life. And going through losing the baby and then infertility made me appreciate the good people in my life like I never had before. I'd like to think it made ME a better friend. I learned how to be a better friend from so many people. And, in a few cases, I also learned what NOT to do.
