About

This blog is dedicated to my journey as a woman struggled with infertility and infant loss. Every pain, physical or mental, leaves a deep scar.  It takes bravery and perseverance to face each day, believing one day I will be out of the woods….

Through sharing, I hope this will help other women in similar situations.  I want to tell you that you are NOT alone.  Be kind to yourself.

A famous quote to cheer us on:

” Courage is not having the strength to go on; it is going on when you don’t have the strength.”  — Theodore Roosevelt

Let us walk together!

    Jasmine thanks for your follow. While I have not had your experiences and do not share the losses you have endured, I am captivated by your story and now want to follow along with your journey. You have a wonderfully articulate way of writing and expressing your raw emotions that I cannot not follow! I do not have children and had never tried, it was not to be on my journey through life Im afraid but I have a wonderful life and wish that you will too no matter the outcome of your quest.

    Dear Jasmine, while i have not suffered the loss of a child i also am infertile and have never been able to have children but i have suffered the loss of my brother which had changed me as a complete person. I write this as i hope a new friend, to say that the woods i walk through are now becoming my saviour. I am beginning to see the beauty within them and the poetry flowing from them and it allows me to continue and speak to people. Once shying from the human race, through my blog and the walk i am starting to believe in life again.
    I can connect with the feelings that you have written about and i will follow to hopefully see that you too can enjoy the life that the woods can offer, it`s not such a dark place and i believe you will find your light there again…
    with love and light

      Thank you for your encouragement and friendship. I admit blogging has created a peaceful outlet for my emotions. Even though I walk in the maze of my own mind, I hope to see ocean and forests, one day. It will come to me, when I am out of woods. I admire your courage!

  6. Thank you for sharing, my heart hurt so bad when I had my second loss and I never knew such pain existed when it isn’t even an open wound. You are a strong woman, keep your head high and focus on each day. Thinking of you!

  10. My Achilles’ Heel are my children. There are so many things I want to change in my past but even if I will be given a chance to go back and undo them, i cannot and I will not because I don’t want to lose my babies. My greatest fear is something bad is going to happen to my kids so, I cannot even begin to imagine what you have been through. Kudos for courage.
