Me

 

Stephanie

Mom to Elijah Daniel

April 12, 2017

Roseville, Minnesota

I first started writing this journal six days after I lost my only son, Elijah. Now, over a year later, I want to share my story to help any other mamas out there who may be struggling with their own loss. First, I want to let you know that I see you, I hear you, and I am so sorry that you are going through this unimaginable pain. Reading others’ stories has helped me know that I am not alone in this journey. Even though time has passed, my wounds still feel fresh, and my heart still aches for my son.

I currently have three daughters here with me on Earth. Two were “successful pregnancies” before Elijah was born, and my third was a “successful pregnancy” just over a year after Elijah was born; my rainbow baby. For me, my third pregnancy, Elijah, was going to be my last. Which meant I kept pretty close tabs on the pregnancy: wrote down exactly when I had my first pregnancy test, when we announced the pregnancy to friends and family, the first time we heard the heartbeat, first ultrasound, first flutters, and when things started to go wrong.
