Day 2 of Capture Your Grief has us sharing a picture of ourselves before the loss of our children.
The picture below was taken in October 2002 at a Halloween party. It is of me and my sister. It was before I found out I was pregnant with Jordan but at the time I was already pregnant. I never would have imagined I would be in an unplanned pregnancy or face a choice I never thought I would make.
This picture was taken December 20, 2008 when I was 23 weeks pregnant with Carleigh. It was just 5 days after we received her fatal diagnosis. I know I look ridiculously happy for getting such devastating news but we were in Hawaii for a family vacation we had planned for 3 years. I left things behind to deal with when we got back. I needed that time away and it really did help me. I came back with a better outlook on things and I felt more ready to face the road that was ahead of us.
