Early May is tough. And Mother’s Day is probably the hardest day of the year when you’re childless and TTC.
But for those who have lost a child, it must be unbearable.
If you or someone you know has experienced this unimaginable pain and loss, today is dedicated to supporting you and to acknowledging and remembering your child. It is National Bereaved Mother’s Day, the first Sunday in May.
I spent some time on a beautiful site owned by CarlyMarie, the woman behind the creation of Bereaved Mother’s Day. It’s a beautiful, supportive, calming place where extraordinary women can go to attempt to heal from extraordinary pain.
Check it out here: http://carlymarieprojectheal.com/2012/05/international-bereaved-mothers-day.html
So whether you are coping with infertility or with the devastation of infant or child loss, please know that there is support out there, in blogs, forums, and counseling support groups, to help you when you are ready to seek it. Please ask.
Blessings to you and your angels.
And for those still trying to build their families who need financial assistance to do so, please consider entering Long Island IVF’s “Extreme Family-Buiding Make-Over ” Contest, where the Grand Prize will be a FREE basic Micro-IVF cycle, valued at $3,900.00. Go to the April 23, 2012 blog post herein to enter, or check out the rules on our Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/longislandivf?ref=tn_tnmn
