These are definitely
These are definitely treatments my daughter will not be getting as long as we are paying for them. While I LOVE a good pedicure and manicure, I want her to understand that her beauty comes from within and that these are for fun, not beauty.

Thank you for this article.
Thank you for this article. It has been just over a year now and I still feel it was like yesterday that the radiologist told us that Bailey had no heartbeat. There are times where I cry daily for my lost baby. The chemical pregnancies were hard but having Bailey die was harder. I hesitate to answer when people ask how many children I have, Bailey was with me for 11 weeks and I will never forget my baby.

My personal views on
My personal views on co-sleeping is that as long as your comfortable with it then it is ok. I had my daughter with me until she was 8 months old due to the fact that she had RSV as an infant and I just felt better with her in bed with me. Once I felt it was time to move her to her crib I wanted to make it as safe as possible. I agree that the bulky traditional crib bumpers are a health risk on many levels. I chose to go with the Wonder bumpers. These bumpers are extremely safe, soft, and durable! I had a peace of mind at night that my daughter was safe in her crib.

Still, overall, the U.S. scores a "C" as we continue to have a high rate of preterm births comparatively. This is a clear indication of work to be done!

Making time to grieve.
Pregnancy and infant loss is never easy. The passing often takes with it shattered hearts and dreams of a future far different than the reality. Having to go through this process while still being called on to serve others -- whether that role is bearing work responsibilities, as "mom" for other children, coping with deteriorating health of parents or in-laws, or simply juggling your relationship with your partner -- 'overwhelming' doesn't even come close.
