Ok so I've been here long enough to know that you all aren't Catholic, or even Christian for that matter - not that it matters here. But many of us celebrate Christmas and Advent all the same. Here's a beautifully written article that a friend of mine sent to me today. I feel all the things talked about in the article on a daily/weekly/monthly basis. Especially this time of year.

We are atheist so we don't celebrate it religiously but the season is difficult. Our twin girls, who were stillborn, were due Christmas eve. Now we have a soon to be 1 year old who was ALSO due on Christmas eve! Yesterday I was holding him thinking about his first birthday, how fast it's come, how we miss his sisters at this time of year and all of that. I have a lot of peace about it all so I am glad.

My thoughts are with all of those who are dealing with pregnancy loss and infertility this season.
