I am grateful

I am grateful to have the most incredible partner I could ask for
I am grateful to have my crazy, mischievous, often naughty 6 year old
I am grateful to have my sister in law who makes me smile and loves us unconditionally
I am grateful to live in a country with free healthcare
I am grateful to be able to access IVF even though we have to wait
I am grateful to live in an amazing area near the beach, in a street filled with children
I am grateful to have had the opportunity to hold and love my Caden
I am grateful to be alive

Brooke, I am so happy to see you post again and that you are starting to see what's good around you. I've been worried about you this week. I hope things are starting to get better for you.
Hugs, Hugs, Hugs

Hi Babette,

I wish I wasn't so far away, all I want to do is give you a huge hug. Like always I don't know what else to say other than I think about you, Kim, Rory and of course Caden pretty much constantly. When I hold Jordy I feel so guilty, like Jai and I didn't deserve him at all, but here he is, You and Kim are so much more deserving yet you have to go through this. When Caden was first born I wanted to give my own baby to you, but despite my post natal insanity I came to realise that even Jordy couldn't replace Caden and take your pain away, nothing can. You just have to survive in the hope that one day it will ease.
I don't know what to do to help you through this, but if there is anything at all please let me know. Like I said before, if there is any reason Kim can't donate her eggs, you can have mine or Jai has offered you his sperm if you need that. You will have more children, I have no doubt, I will even carry one for you if that's what it takes (and you know how I hate being pregnant). Please don't give up hope now. You have been through so much and you are still here. You have incredible strength, you are an amazing girl. Hang in there. You have Kim and Rory who can't live without you, and so many of us who love you.
Miss ya Brooke!
xoxo Ange

Yes. Lots of things to be grateful for, even when you've lost a child.
