Grief Exposed

October is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month. I have decided to participate in Carly Marie's Capture Your Grief 2012. I have been having a really really rough time lately and I think this will be a good opportunity for me to outlet some of my emotions. Each day has a subject and the goal is to capture a photograph of something that represents each day of the month.

I am on the verge of tears just thinking about the detail of each one of these. My love for Reese and Scotlyn is so powerful, it overwhelms me sometimes. I miss those girls so much! I am taking advantage of this opportunity to let my love for them shine. Stay tuned.


  1. I love you Kim. You are an amazing mom, an incredible friend, and a strong inspirational woman. I think of you and pray for you everyday. I know your heartache and daily battle with grief. Some days it's a struggle to get out of bed, other days your ok, some days all you want to do is cry, and others you feel guilty for laughing. It's such a horrible emotional rollercoaster. If you ever need a shoulder I am here. I know how hard it is to find someone to talk to who knows how you feel and what's in your heart without you saying anything at all. Praying for strength on this bare all journey of grief exposure.

  2. Wow it looks amazing I so wish I could join in but i am already feeling overwhelmed with tasks. I so look forward to seeing your pictures!!!! I agree with Tina you are a wonderful mommy to ALL your babies. Praying for you my friend!
