(CHILD MENT) old loss, but new here

Just want to say hello to you all. I have been reading this site for a long time. I never joined because I didn't want to jinx myself again. That sounds horrible, but I hope you know what I mean. I feel like I know you all. You are all friends of mine, we all have somthing in common.
Let me introduce myself. My name is Erin, married to a wonderful man named John for 14 years. Mother of Noah-12, Thea-11, McKenna-7, Olivia-5 and our BIG surprise Jonah-11mo. I know you are probably thinking that I amon the wrong board, but, I am not. I am also the very proud mother to Quinn Thomas who passed away on Feb. 26, 2001, due to a cord accident, and Elliot Matthew who passed for unknown reasons on May 5, 2005.
I just want to say how brave you all are. It still hurts, even today. I think for me the what might have been is the hardest. I know that not all of you are religious, but I want to pass on somthing someone told me at my darkest time in 2001. Doesn't Heaven seem so much closer now that youv'e made such a precious deposit.
I wish I would have had this place during my first loss. I felt so alone. We all know that our significant others grieve in a totally different way. I can't wait to get to know you all more.

Erin

I am so sorry that you not only know this loss but know it more than once. Welcome. Your experiences should be beyond valuable for those of us at the beginning of this lifelong journey.

Child Ment.....

Wow Erin, I'm so sorry for your losses. I love the quote you used. I agree totally. My parents as well as us consider ourselves parents of 4 children. Just the first two were taken to heaven before their birth. It's a hard thing to deal with no matter how long ago. ((((((((((((hugs to you!)))))))))))))))

I am so sorry to hear of your losses. I know that the pain does get more infrequent as time goes on, but i bet it still hurts... maybe in different ways and with different triggers, but i can't imagine it ever going away.

Doesn't Heaven seem so much closer now that youv'e made such a precious deposit.

This is SO true!! If i know one thing, it's that i will see my children again when i die and it gives me so much comfort. It's made death less scary, and although i'm in no hurry to get there i have something to look forward to now. Smile

I'm so glad you decided to come out of lurkdom. :giveflower:
