Hi, I'm Jamie, and welcome to my blog.
Some of you knew that by now, but a brief synopsis of why I'm here is in order, I believe.
My original blog, http://babyoliverblog.blogspot.com was started February 15th of 2009, to chronicle my first pregnancy. Unfortunately, on March 19th, 2009, we lost our precious baby girl to a very rare, very hard to comprehend syndrome. It was a fluke, and there was nothing we could do to stop that.
Over the last 3 years, I've received numerous emails about how finding that blog, and that honest, brutal, no holds barred look at my experience, helped others cope with their own loss. I am blessed in multiple ways to have been given such a huge compliment. I never intended my blog to be anything other than something I could refer back to later in life, for memories' sake. Knowing that someone was able to find some sort of comfort in my words is, without a doubt, an amazing honor.
That being said, I fell off the blogging bandwagon for a while because I didn't feel I had anything to say. The truth is, I do. Because there's a ton of other things in life that are sugar coated and not discussed, and if I brought light to one, why not do it with others?
So this will be moving into a no hold barred look at my life. Perhaps some of it will apply to you. Perhaps not. But I hope I can manage to bring a little bit of that peace of mind to more people with this new blog. I've moved because I no longer can stand the site of the babyoliverblog address. I'm still the same old me, though.
