Faces of Loss, Faces of Hope is a new website that is only a few months old, but quickly gaining attention. This is an excerpt from the Founder, Kristin Cook:

There are hundreds of women bravely and openly sharing their stories of miscarriage, stillbirth, and infant loss on personal blogs, all over the world, and others who are looking for a way to share their stories with others. Faces of Loss, Faces of Hope is a place for us to come together and share our stories and our faces with others who may be looking for reassurance that they are not alone. My hope is that Faces of Loss, Faces of Hope becomes a place for new members of this "babyloss club" to come and read hundreds of other stories, and see hundreds of other faces like theirs, all in one place.

It is also my hope that Faces of Loss, Faces of Hope brings awareness to the issue of pregnancy/infant loss. I hope that by telling the world we are not afraid to show our faces and tell our stories, barriers will be broken down. Taboos will be broken, and lines of communication will be opened.



In reading many of the stories of loss and the uplifting stories of hope, I knew I had to participate. Although I've written pieces of my story several times over the last eight years, I haven't shared it in much detail with the world. I procrastinated on writing the stories and honestly, it was an emotionally tough few days going down that dark road of grief again. But I am excited to share my story of loss and story of hope with you now. Reader Discretion is advised, please do not read the stories if you think it would be too upsetting. You can read these stories here:

Mindy Bugby: "My Caidyn drowned just 16 days after his 2nd birthday May 4, 2008. I miss him every day, and a group of ladies purchased a My Forever Child necklace for me and I absolutely love it. After hearing about a little girl that drowned not long after Caidyn died I felt the need to pay it forward and purchased a similar necklace for her mom. All the jewelry offered here is beautiful.

It means so much to be able to wear something that represents my daughter and some day I'd like to get something to represent my other child and all of my children. I definitely wear your jewelry proudly!"

Mother's Day is a particularly difficult holiday for a woman whose child(ren) has passed away. What should be a day of happiness and celebration becomes lonely and painful for the bereaved mother. While she is still a mother, the outside world may not acknowledge that. If you know a woman who is grieving the loss of her child(ren), be sure to reach out to her on Mother's Day. You can visit her, send a card, or call her to let her know that she is in your thoughts and that you are remembering her child(ren), that they are not forgotten. If you are a bereaved mother, try to communicate with your family how they can help you to get through this holiday. Be gentle with yourself and don't participate in any activities that you don't want to. As always, you are all in my prayers. May God bless you and give you peace, comfort, and strength this Mother's Day.
Here is a special poem I wrote for the Mothers of Angels:

A Mother's Day Ode
I am your mother, but you, my child, I cannot hold.
It'll get easier with time, or so I'm told.
People may forget that I am your mother.
I'm part of a secret club we only share with one another.
But that doesn't diminsh my love for you.
I think of you the whole day through.
I wonder what you're doing, my Precious Little One.
We are connected by an Infinite bond which cannot come undone.
I will not let death tear us apart.
I promise to always keep you alive in my heart.
