Question Mark

I used to be so sure of the future and what it would hold. I felt certain that, no matter how hard things got, it would all be okay and we would have the things we dreamed of.

There is nothing like child and pregnancy loss to shatter your illusions of control. Now the future is a big question mark; I can't look forward even a few months with any confidence. It is both liberating and terrifying at the same time. 

I very much hope that we are granted joy in the wake of so much sorrow.

I am happy to share. When Haven died, I voraciously devoured other people's blogs - it meant so much to be able to share in someone else's experience. It made me feel so much less alone!

I think I've learned that joy has a way of finding its way in. I don't know what I would do with it all if I was given the ultimate gift of a child to take home - I'd probably explode. :)
