I’m going to be famous!

Okay, maybe not famous, but that’s not the point.  Three weeks ago I was contacted by the milk bank with a really cool opportunity.  A film maker was coming to Indy to do a documentary on donating human milk.  He wanted two moms to be a part of the film. Well they asked me if I was interested in telling my story for the bereavement program. I hesitated at first because I’m very shy in front of a camera, but I felt that I had to be a part of it. It would be another reason for me to talk about Aidan and secondly I’m very passionate about donating human milk. I know that pumping and donating really helped me in my grief process. I plan on donating again with future children. 

I got the location, a day spa where the bank was holding a girls night out event, and waited while they got everything set up.  The spa was not prepared for this at all! None of the rooms were well lit enough so they had to tape in the men’s bathroom. It was a very nice bathroom, I wish I would have seen the women’s because you know it’s always better then the men’s. Then they had music piped into the bathroom that couldn’t be turned off. I had to yell and even then the music was still too loud for the film.  I told my story though and hopefully he’ll be able to use some of it.  I of course had my pictures of Aidan and he had me hold them up. Hopefully they’ll still show his picture even if they can’t use my interview.

I’ll keep you updated as I hear how the progress of the film is going.

I love you Aidan Christopher!



  1. Awww that is so neat! I hope it's able to be poste donline when they are done. I would love to see it. :)

  2. what a great opportunity! i didn't realize you had been donating. i really wish i would have done that when i lost my son (he was only 21 weeks gestation). i think it definitely would have helped in my healing.

    if you get the name, link, or video from the documentary i'd love to see it!

  3. I have been thinking about you!
    I am glad that you were able to do this, it sounds like a great chance to share!

  4. That is so awesome, Maggie! I'm sorry you had to film it in a men's room and yell over the music though :( I'm looking forward to updates about this!
