One month ago today


A month ago today we had to give Gabriel back. It was honestly the hardest thing I've ever had to do. I find myself incredibly sad today and missing him so much. I knew this process was going to be difficult, but some days it simply feels unbearable - to the point where it hurts to even breathe. My office has seven framed pictures of Gabriel and he's on my desktop at home and at work, but it's not enough. I just need him here with us. Maybe then my heart won't hurt so much. Deep breath before I start to cry again...

what a loving mother you are, what a lucky little man Gabriel is. He is so loved even before he was born. That child is so blessed and I'm so glad you guys will be reunited soon. God bless you.

How'd we get here? said...
