When my clients come to me to get their maternity and newborn pictures taken it is often with much hope, expectation and excitement. But there are times when dreams fall into ashes and all that is left are the broken pieces, a memory of what could have been, and scars that will never truly heal.
While I have no words of comfort that can mend a broken heart, I am certain of one thing. During this pain, suffering and the unfairness of it all, a warrior was born. A fighter, and yes, a mother. With her angel in heaven she will now need to be stronger than any mother could ever imagine having to be.
Even as my heart aches and tears roll uncontrollably down my cheeks, I am posting these in memory of the life lost, and in celebration of the warrior that was born. Never forget your strength mama who has lost so much. Surround yourself with the love that remains and know that while it may not always feel that way, you have much strength within you! And remember, you are not alone!
