This week was a very beautiful week of honoring the babies. August 19-Day of Hope has inspired my question of the day.
I was very happy to see that non-BLMs were supporting their family members by changing their pictures on FB. Assisting them bring the memory boxes into hospitals, especially for those that it was still so fresh. I did not get any support from family, but I did get support from my very good friend, she always makes me feel 'less alone'. I also had a Non-BLM take pictures of my daughters name and we do not speak at all...she seen her friends babies' name and my daughter and did it together. It brought tears to my eyes thinking she was also thinking of Alyssa too. There is nothing like people thinking of your child to make their memory live on. Especially remembering their name. Seems like a simple gesture, but you would be surprised at what people have done to me.
I would love your "Two Cents" on how do you feel when a Non-BLM supports you on your special days? What have they done for you? Is it just dropping off a card in the mail for your special dates? Is it taking a picture of something that reminds you of the babies? What are your "Two Cents" on those that have not shown support? What have they done? What can you do to change that in the future?
I can't wait to hear your responses, because I have found no matter how many DO support me, a little piece of me can't stop but think about those who do not and it is very hurtful. It does not make me feel better knowing I am in this alone......
Hope we have more success stories than not today....but if we do maybe we can come up with a way to change that for us...or at least change our expectations of others' approach.
