#captureyourgrief Day 29: Give Away Your Love.
Dear Loss Momma at Brookfield Zoo today,

I want you to know that I saw you. I want you to know that in the chaos of holding my honeybee rainbow baby as she pulled at my hair, I saw you. First I noticed the pregnancy and infant loss blue and pink ribbon on the front of your hoodie. And then as you and your significant other passed, I turned to look at you once more, and noticed in small font across the back 2 names in pink and one in blue, all with a birthdate of March 2014…

Momma I want you to know that I saw you. That even though we didn’t speak, in that moment I felt connected. For that moment the chaos and hundreds of people around us just melted away…. I know your heart, loss sister, and I know that you know mine as well…

Loss mama, I want you to know that for a moment I contemplated running after you to give you a hug. To tell you about my beautiful daughters. To tell you that you are not alone as you struggle this Halloween (like every other holiday) to get through it without your babies…

Sweet Momma, I want you to know that I saw your sweatshirt. That even though I do not know you or your babies, that today they were remembered. That today I thought of your children, and how in an alternate universe somewhere perhaps we would have met on the playground at the zoo today, all 5 of our missing babies in tow, and become fast friends…

Brave Momma, I want you to know that even though I didn’t physically reach out in the chaos of today, you and your babies have been on my heart and mind all day. I want you to know that you are never alone. And I want to thank you for wearing this outward symbol of your loss today, so that I didn’t feel alone… On such a hard day when all 3 of my girls should have been dressed up in their costumes riding the carousel, you helped me to not feel alone…. Thank you Warrior Mama
