  1. I felt the same way when I had my first miscarriage eleven years ago. There was no where I could go for support, and I felt like I was the only one who was “broken,” as all of my friends already had babies. Thank goodness we’re all much more willing to talk about it.

    • It’s so true Kathy. Broken is a great way to describe it because that is exactly how I felt and everyone in my life who loved me wanted to “fix” me. I agree it’s great that we are more willing to talk about it. I am so honored to be in the book with you. xo

  2. It is amazing, isn’t it? It can be just a look between women, traveling the path of another woman’s eyes to a newborn and we know. We just know. So many of us have been here, felt this, needed a hand, a gentle word, a smile. I’m glad to know there is another resource for women hurting.

    • You are so right! It’s is amazing what a kind word or smile from a woman who knows what you are going through can do. I really hope that this book serves as that for those that unfortunately need it. Thank you. 🙂

  3. Your post made me tear up — so I can’t even imagine what’s gonna happen when I read the book! You and your co-authors are so brave and gracious to share your stories to help other women in similar situations.

  4. Kathy, this is fabulous. And what wonderful gestures by those women in the queue. I’m so glad they were able to be sensitive to you.

    This is what I want, too – that no other woman should ever feel alone in this. So pleased to share a chapter with you 🙂 x

    This book will help so many people, Kathy. I wish less of us knew the feeling of needing the solidarity of others, but I’m so glad that we have one another. Congratulations!

  6. I technically didn’t miscarry, but I had a chemical pregnancy 2 months before getting pregnant with Emma and I just remember how awful I felt right after seeing women who were pregnant or who just had babies. It was gut wrenching and I was only 4 short weeks when I thought I was pregnant and had just missed my period. I can’t even have imagined being further along, but then when I was pregnant with Lily, I was spotting at 21 weeks and my doctor wasn’t sure if I would miscarry her. Thankfully I didn’t, but still I remember what a wreck I was. Thank you Kathy for sharing what happened to you in the past and truly do hope this helps others out there that have gone through something similar, too.

  7. I am so sorry that you and your husband had to experience such pain, but I am sure that your story will help so many! Your honesty and bravery always shines through in your writing! Blessings to you!

  8. Kathy, your willingness to share offers so much comfort to others. I got so filled up with sorrow when I read your story, I really appreciate or your strength and courage to share. Thank you for giving of your ‘family self’. xo
