This poem was written by a fellow Nestie for the ladies on the TTCAL (Trying to Conceive After a Loss) board. I think her words would work for anyone who has experienced pregnancy loss and given support by others. Thanks polllykinz!
It’s hard to put into words
The special bond we share
A pain that’s only understood
By those who have been there.
So long we’ve hoped, and prayed and dreamed
Of a baby of our own,
But since we got that amazing news
No greater pain have we known.
Most people never struggle
To start their families,
But for some of us the road is hard
And paved with difficulties.
There really are no answers,
And there is no guarantee,
But you’re always there to pick me up
When it seems an impossibility.
We give each other strength and hope
When that’s all we have to give,
And remind each other of all the things
For which we have yet to live.
So thank you ladies, each of you,
From the bottom of my heart,
And may we all soon know the joy
Of a new life about to start.
