It’s now been one week less than 4 months since we lost our dear Jonah. In that time, I’ve just felt like I HAVE to do something to help as many others going through this as I possibly can. It’s been an incredibly hard road, because I constantly have all these (sometimes crazy) ideas about what I can do, and many of those ideas have come and gone pretty quickly. I tend to start right away on something as soon as I have an idea, without properly thinking through it first.
In short, I’ve never been so passionate about doing something. I can’t just sit here and see all these moms and dads going through this terrible heartbreak and not try to do something to help. I fell desperate to do something in Jonah’s name that is good. Losing Jonah can never be spun as being something good, but that doesn’t mean that something good can’t come out of my loss.
So, it’s here: The Courageous Mothers community. I really hope to make it an amazing, supportive, loving community for mothers (and fathers) going through pregnancy/baby loss or infertility. I hope to find writers who will want to write often, along with me, about everything that goes along with life after loss. I hope that others going through this will see those posts, find a community of supportive friends, and maybe feel just an iota less pain because of it.
It doesn’t look like much now, but I hope it will very soon 🙂 If you’re here and you’ve experienced any sort of loss or infertility, please consider writing for Courageous Mothers!
