I am the Face.....

My friend Lara posted on Facebook about a blog called Faces of Loss, Faces of Hope. It's another place to tell our story. I submitted my story (with a not so flattering picture, in my opinion) and it was posted today.  Most of you have already read Aidan's story, but if you'd like to read it again. It's here.

To my babyloss mommas I really encourage you to send in your story.  As we know, during this time it's so easy to feel alone and think that no one knows what we're going through. This is another way to show and help women that we are not alone. We have a large support system even if it's on the internet. I have an amazing support system in real life. Even in people that I had no idea that they would be there for me. That being said, the amount of support that I've gotten online has blown me away. The comments, texts and messages have meant so much to me. I know that posting my story on that blog will help others as well as helping myself.

I love you Aidan Christopher and thank you for giving me the courage to speak so open and freely about you.



  1. Maggie,

    First of all, I am so sorry for your loss. I am a baby loss mom as well. I just read Aidan's story on Faces of Loss and was completely touched. My son, Cole, and Aidan have many similarities in their stories. I posted Cole's story on Faces of Loss and you can find it under 24 weeks or Arizona.

    I hope that everyday is easier for you to deal with the loss of your son. You are in my prayers.

  2. thank-you for posting this! i submitted my story yesterday.
