i wear a necklace {faces of loss, faces of hope}

I have a necklace that I wear. Not everyday, not even most days, but routinely.

Its not particularly elegant. It actually a bit plain. Small and simple and unobtrusive. I think most people don't even notice when I wear it.

Two stones (pink quartz and apatite) and a small butterfly. Such little things to represent something so big.

Everyday that I wear this necklace I remember. Because this necklace, its special; its important. Its my babyloss necklace.

What does it feel like to wear this necklace? It feels like loss, like guilt (do I not think of the lost one enough?), it feels like mixed feelings (if that babe were here, Gwen wouldn't be).

October 15th is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day, and I'm coming out as both a Face of Loss and as a Face of Hope.

Everyday I remember the one that was lost. Today I take a moment to make sure others remember too.

I hope you take a moment today to hug your babies tight, and say a little prayer for the parents of babies who are beyond hugs.
