My radio debut!

I wanted to share this with you all! The Great Strides Walk for Cystic Fibrosis Canada is tomorrow afternoon. Earlier this past week, I was approached by the organizers of the walk and asked if I could do a radio interview. This is the result! The version that aired during the news was quite a bit shorter, but still mentioned the loss of Kherrington. She is, after all, the inspiration behind our team.."Kheri's Crusaders".

So go ahead.. listen HERE (I expect that the story on their website will expire in a few days).

Mother's Day

So, I didn't get a chance to post here last Sunday for International Baby-lost Mother's day, so I am going to do so now.

Mother's Day this year is a different experience for me compared to last year. Last year I wanted the day to just go away. I really didn't celebrate "Mother's Day" as I had just lost Kherrington, and I wasn't pregnant yet with Kaedence. I was in that "space between".

Last night we had some new friends stop by the house to drop off a few things for Kaedence. Their little girl was with them and she was just precious. She was born February 25, 2010...one day before Kherrington's due date. She was walking, screaming, climbing, laughing and playing. She was just so full of life. When I looked at her, I could see what we missed with Kherrington. I watched her play while I was feeding our rainbow. I know that without Kherrington, we wouldn't have Kaedence, and that makes this Mother's day bittersweet... I'm sure they will all be this way.

Much peace to all mother's today. Whether your babies are here in this world, or are in another.
