I am a mom that had to bury a child.
Yes I am that mom.
But I’m also a mom who was so very blessed.
I thank God every day that I got to be Olivia’s mom.
That I got to walk her journey with her.
Caring for this beautiful girl changed my life.
I learned so much.
I learned about true love.
It’s not easy losing a child.
Wow what an understatement.
It’s so not easy
I always will have a part of me missing.
Yet I would do it all again.
It a heartbeat.
Walk those hospital corridors
Wait those endless hours for appointments
Fill those never ending prescriptions.
When you become a mother you take on many roles.
When you have a special needs child these roles extend
At times it feels like each day holds a new battle.
And yes we do get battle weary
But our children are always worth the fight.
