The Purpose of Emily's Blog

There are days, rather months, where I have struggled. With God. And what He wants me to learn through the experience of losing Emily. Sometimes I say, I don't want to learn anything. I just want her back. I am done feeling this way. But I have learned that even people with faith, still struggle, even though you may never know that this is the case. I have learned that this, losing a baby and child, is one of the worst pains you could ever feel. And continue to feel. Forever. It never goes away. One bereaved mother said, your heart isn't broken, it is shattered into a million pieces. I pondered on this and thought, "So true. And each piece is a different feeling or thought. Some you never knew you had. Others yet to be discovered." She also said that part of your heart is forever gone because your loved baby took it with them. Maybe that explains this feeling that something is missing.

My purpose in writing this blog is to bring hope to others. That they are not alone in their sadness. Their forever heartache. Their feelings and thoughts that they have. When Emily died, I just wanted to hear other's stories that had gone through this. That I wasn't alone. I still search and find comfort in hearing other's stories. And I probably always will.

Love and prayers from Emily's mommy,

You are never ever alone. Each journey is different but we all feel the emptiness and pain when we lose a child, no matter how much time has passed. I think that the reason it hurts so much is because you love Emily so much. The most honest advice I heard from another Mom who had lost a child was this. "I'm not going to tell you that it gets any easier, because it doesn't. You will miss him and think about him every day. But every day, it will become a little more bearable." I miss my son every day. I think of him every day. But I also feel him around me and I know that I will see him again, and that is what makes me smile. You will see Emily again and until then you know that she will be watching over you.
