The kids got to meet Santa twice yesterday! They were very excited and both Santa’s were really nice to them. They loved the candy canes they got. Lionel did not think that the Nordic Santa downtown Poulsbo looked like the real Santa though-haha. Tyler was asleep in his car seat while both pics were taken.
Last night we went to the annual candlelight ceremony and remembered Oliver and other babies in heaven. I love going to this event and listen to the music, light a candle, think of my little boy and get to talk to other families who also have lost babies.
Elizabeth Kubler-Ross, the psychiatrist responsible for the famous Five Stages of Grief,
“The reality is that you will grieve forever. You will not ‘get over’ the loss of a loved one, you will learn to live with it. You will heal and you will rebuild yourself around the loss you have suffered. You will be whole again but you will never be the same again. Nor should you be the same, nor should you want to.”
