Good night, sweet prince: And flights of angels sing thee to thy rest...
-William Shakespeare


It has been said, 'time heals all wounds.' I do not agree. The wounds remain. In time, the mind, protecting its sanity, covers them with scar tissue and the pain lessens. But it is never gone.

Achey Breaky Heart

This is a very short post in regards to Postsecret today.

The lady with the stillborn son, it breaks my heart to see others in our sinking ship. My heart aches for her and all of us in this "club" that we don't want to be in.

My only consolation some days is all of you, for that I am thankful. I think some times, I wouldn't have met any of you had my son not died. Therefore, I'm not happy that I met you but glad that I found you. There are other days that I believe, I would have met you somehow even if my son had lived. I'm a believer in the universe (as sick as it may be) it has it's ways of putting us together as friends. I just wish it didn't seem that this (stillbirth/losing a child) was the reason we are all together now.

Wishing you all peace in your journey ahead, and hoping I find some peace too.

I thought the same thing when I read that secret this morning...

I'm glad we found each other too, even if the reasons sucked. I think you're right though. I think some of us would have found each other no matter what. Friends are sometimes just meant to happen.

(Hadn't yet gotten to postsecret today, but I'm on my way, now. I had been wondering how long it would take for a secret we could relate to, us in this deadbabyclub.)


"Therefore, I'm not happy that I met you but glad that I found you."

This is exactly how I feel, Amy. Thank you for saying it. And for being there.

I can't imagine what these last few months would have been like if I hadn't found this community of amazing women.

That secret broke my heart too. And I think I would do it if it wasnt for the fact that I wouldnt wish the painof losing a child on anyone, not even the 'worst' parent...
