I suppose I should explain myself....

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.
