The Story of My Twins

On January 23rd Lauren was stillborn around 10:30 p.m. Colleen was born at 4:44 am on January 24, 2001. I did not allow myself to grieve for Lauren for quite some time. I focused all of my attention on Colleen thinking that if I was sad for Lauren I would let Colleen down. I am finally able to realize that no matter how happy I am to have Colleen my heart still holds a special place for Lauren. I have finally begun down the path of grieving and healing. I know it is going to be a long and difficult journey but I know that I will make it. I have taken a few steps backwards but I will make it. I am so proud and happy to have Colleen and I will always hold Lauren in my heart.
