Olivia Marie

Everything changed within 48 hours

  • Welcome to Share. I am so sorry to read about the passing of your baby girl Olivia. I know that there aren't any words that can lessen the pain. You had all been waiting so patiently to meet her. No doubt you had such wonderful plans for her early life and dreams for her future with you. You are entitled to scream, curse, cry, and break dishes - whatever you need to do in the moment that feels right! Know that everything you're feeling is normal and it's more than okay to not know what your next step is.

    Ten years ago, in March of 2009, I became an angel Mom. I was on bedrest at home and was waiting to meet our son. It all spiraled suddenly one fateful night and it's been quite the journey ever since. Luckily, I found this site and it allowed me a safe place to put a lot of my scattered thoughts. I hope that it can do the same for you. Continue to lean on those lovely supports at home. You need each other.

    Sending you hugs,

    Lindsay

  • Hello and Welcome,

    I  feel like you are describing exactly how I felt when my daughter passed away. I lost her in February of 2007, complications of Trisomy 18. I knew her diagnosis before she was born, but getting to keep her for just a few days made her real.  I spent so many days in an utter fog, begging the universe to help me stop feeling so broken hearted and so very helpless. Please know this is a safe place and we are her for you.

    Love and hugs

  • I relate so strongly to everything you wrote. You WILL survive this! Stay strong! "You endure what is unbearable and you bear it. That is all." This quote helped me after the loss of my son Jameson.

    Sending positive, healing vibes your way.
