Taking Care of Baby

DH and I took a drive to NJ this weekend to attend a Baby Care class. It was given by the leader of our adoption support group.

The best thing about it was no pregnant bellies! This class is only open to people pursuing adoption. Awesome. It was only 2.5 hours long but, chock full of good parenting tips such as Must Haves for nursery, how to clean the umbilical cord, picking a pediatrician, diapering, swaddling etc. We practiced on baby dolls. DH and I got a pretty decent looking baby. Some looked more like toddlers and there was one that look liked Chu.ckie.

We had quite a few laughs and learned alot. It was a good way to pass the time because this waiting sure does suck!

Forever in my Heart

Today is National Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness Day.

Tonight I will open the small box I decorated with sparkly butterflies and remember my son and daughter. I keep in this box all of my embryos pictures, sonograms, hospital bracelets and pathology reports from my two pregnancies.

I will read the letters I wrote to each baby telling them how proud I was to carry them in my womb even though it was only for 9 and 8 weeks. I will remember all of the hope DH and I had for our family.

Dearest little ones, you will live forever in my heart!
