Our "Not So Due" Date

Today was supposed to be our due date. As a memorial to our little one, we purchased a half acre of trees to be planted in his memory.

Instead of spending this day bringing our child into the world, we are spending it in reflection of the last year. We may not have gained a new family member, but through hard work and tremendous effort, we have gained endless personal insight and a healthier foundation to build our family on.

What a great way to honor him. There is a lot to be learned from this process. It would be nice to have that innocence back, but I agree that this experience will ultimately make us better parents. (Hugs)
