What you have

What you have

Thanksgiving day a year ago was supposed to bring a new life into our family, my daughters life. Thanksgiving Day 2015 was her due date, a day that for many years to come we would give thanks for her life and now it’s a painful reminder of what we have lost.

The day we found out I was pregnant, I had been throwing up so much I was hoarse. It didn’t take long to figure out that I had hyperemesis: meaning I wasn’t going to get better; I was going to get worse.

When we found out the pregnancy was hard on the baby as well as me, it broke my heart. Not only Could I not enjoy my pregnancy and look forward to being a mother but my child might not survive the pregnancy and there was nothing I could do to help her.

There are many things in this terrible world that no one should have to bear, and I have had to bear more than my fair share. I know sometimes that anger can just eat you up, but giving thanks can help you realize how much you have, instead of thinking about what you have lost.
