I was all set to write a horribly self-centered post about some anxiety I've been feeling about becoming a parent. But then I saw this terrible news. And spent some time catching up on the latest from these three women, who are all getting through each day with an amount of strength I can't even comprehend.

So I've decided to keep my trap shut, and instead focus my energy and prayers on the many women about whom, though I couldn't pick them out of lineup, I spend an inordinate amount of time thinking.

Honey, no need to be silent... Vent all you want... It is what we are all here for. (God knows we all need to know that we arent the only ones feeling stressed, paranoid, and terrified.)

Trust me: when it comes to your baby/babies, you find your strength. One day at a time. You are strong. And brave. This road takes so much out of you that being positive and taking one day at a time is the strongest thing you can do. And you are doing that.

Big hugs...

I felt such sorrow today when I saw Mo's blog. I understand your silence. And, your comment about the line-up. It's so crazy to be so connected with people you've never met!

Hope all is well!

Oh, VENT away! It is so good for the soul. ;)

I saw Mo and Will's news and was just crushed. I cannot imagine- our losses were fewer and almost broke my spirit completely. I am sending them all my love.

You just made my day... I feel so weak, so thank YOU for the thoughts. Where would any of us be without our amazing bloggy friends? I have no idea.

Barefoot. Thanks so much for thinking of us. It helps. In some mysterious way, it really does.

Great perspective.

I'm heartbroken for Will and Mo.
