About Faces of Loss, Faces of Hope:
My first child, a little girl named Stevie Joy, was stillborn on May 8th, 2010, when I was 26 weeks pregnant. My perfect pregnancy, my perfect life, came crashing down around me in an instant the moment I heard those shocking little words: “there is no heartbeat.
Of all the feelings I experienced after my daughter died, loneliness was by far the hardest. I felt completely and utterly alone. I felt like some sort of freak of nature. This sort of thing doesn’t happen to healthy, normal people like me, I thought.
But I was wrong. After spending hours and hours scouring the internet for other stories like mine, I realized pregnancy loss is more common than I ever thought, and that it does not discriminate. It affects women of all ages, of all races, of all walks of life. It’s not just something that happens to “other people,” it can happen to anyone. I realized there were so many other nice, normal people like me who had gone through the death of a child. And they were surviving. That realization gave me hope. If they could do it, maybe, just maybe I could survive this too.
