Three years ago today, an ultrasound revealed that our first pregnancy was not viable. It's hard to believe it was three years ago. The emotions of that day make it feel as if it were yesterday, while the struggles we have faced since then make it feel like forever ago. I'm in a much better place emotionally now, but today will always linger in my mind.
Today will be difficult in another way because I will spend it with many others saying goodbye to a friend. Kacie lost her battle with cancer (CML) on April 12 and we will celebrate her life today on what should be her 45th birthday. I haven't written about it because I didn't feel as if it was my place to do so. I will ask you to please click on her name to learn her amazing story of strength, love, faith, and family.

RIP to our first baby and especially to Kacie.
