Closer to a year

We're getting closer to the year mark, and it's starting to really scare me. How can it really have been a year already? Especially when it feels like it was just yesterday that she was still in me, kicking away.... planning for her future, having so many dreams for her.

11 months came and went, and Aurora was the only thing on my mind all day long. The 21st of any month will always sting in some way.

I wish I could say, that the pain is no longer there almost a year later... but it isn't. I can say that the pain is better. It's been a few weeks since I last cried because I missed her. The emptyness is still there, and the bitterness is still there. But almost a year later, it is better.

I love you Aurora.


  1. Huge Hugs! Wish there was more I could do! I'm praying for you!

  2. Hi Steph! I just wanted to stop in and say that I am thinking of you and praying for you! I will say an extra prayer as you approach Aurora's birthday. What a beautiful and special daughter to celebrate. Love ya!
