(Taken with my iphone)
When I had a miscarriage with my middle child that hole was eventually filled when I fell pregnant with my third child. I can enjoy every Mother's Day with a joyful lunch out and get my annual (decent) pic of me and the kids. For others, Mother's Day can bring up feelings of deep sadness, pain and isolation.
International Bereaved Mother’s Day was celebrated on Sunday May 1st 2016.
I am constantly learning what daily life is like for bereaved mothers from my dear friend Carmen who lost her precious full term baby, Walter to Stillbirth.
Through Carmen, I was introduce to The Mother Hearts "I See You Project"
The quilted infinity scarves above were made with much thoughtfulness in every stitch and love for special women who have suffered the unmentionable, child loss. However, not given at the time of the loss just given as loving gifts. Pattern generously shared here.
This is more of an acknowledgement post of this important day for grieving mothers before the celebratory one held next week.
If you are a grieving mother - I see you.
