Today is Hadley’s angel day, it has been one year since our lives were forever changed and we were forced to say goodbye to our daughter. I just keep thinking back to every minute of that day and the days before and wishing we could do it all over again and have three beautiful babies here with us right now. We will spend this day honoring her and finding ways to keep her memory alive, remembering those precious last moments we spent with her.
There are a few wonderful places that have helped me get through this last year and I would like to share them in case anyone else out there has experienced such a devastating loss. CLIMB (Center for Loss in Multiple Births) is an amazing resource for families who have lost one or more in a set of multiples. ELIMBO is a yahoo support forum that connects parents who have lost a multiple and, of course, the wonderful community at Fertile Thoughts who have supported me from our journey to get pregnant, our loss of Hadley and now parenting my two survivors. I really couldn’t have made it through without the wonderful people I have met along the way.
Thanks too to our family, I know the loss of Hadley is hard for all of you as well but you have always come through with nothing but support and love for us. We appreciate all of you and only wish she could be here to share the love you have given us.
This is just a horrible day that no parent should ever have to get through. Mark and I will lean on each other today and get through it.
Hadley, we love and miss you each and every day.

Jessica, I've been thinking of you and your family today. Hadley touched many of us and I hope that you find peace knowing she is looking over her mommy. It brings tears to my eyes knowing we started this journey together and never imagined it would be this way. It is amazing at how strong of a bond we made with the endless support we give each other. I'm lucky to have such a strong woman as my friend. I will be praying for you.
