In Which I Contemplate Pregnancy After Loss

Since Finley was born, a question that seemed to be on everyone’s mind was whether or not Steve and I would ‘try again’. People throw those words around as though it is the most natural question in the world. I know it’s genuine curiosity from people who were so excited for us to become parents, and yet to me it often feels like people are really asking if we are going to try again because we failed the last time. Or, I guess I should say, that I failed the last time, since I was the one who…See More

Naples Revisited

A lot of you probably already know that I took a trip to Naples last week. I planned this trip ages ago and while I thought of writing about it, I don't think I did because I didn't want to dwell on just exactly what this trip would mean. When it became apparent to me that we were definitely going to move forward with our move to Canada, I knew in my heart that I had to go back to the place where Finley was born, because once we live overseas, the opportunity just wouldn't be there.In my mind I…See More

New Year, New Hope

I've been sitting here for a couple of hours contemplating what to write about 2012. How can I possibly convey in words what that year has meant for me and for my family?There is a quote that instantly springs to mind, and I feel that it is more fitting in my life now than it has ever been before."It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light,…See More

St. Catherine's Hill Adventure

On Thursday we decided to take Jacob out for a walk. He was going a little bit stir crazy from being indoors. The weather was not exactly lovely, so we got suitably dressed and headed out.Steve decided that he wanted to go to St. Catherine's Hill. We had never been there before, but you can see it plainly from the M3 when driving towards Winchester from the south.

Share a little something about yourself with other moms.
I created my blog Dear Finley as a way to express and share the feelings I was experiencing after Finley passed away. After attending a 'babyloss' group, I was told that writing letters and just writing in general was a useful way to express my feelings. After reading a friend's blog about her stillbirth, I had an urge to share Finley's story with the world; I guess in a way I wanted people to know that he existed, even though he isn't here now. I decided I would share some of the letters that I was writing to Finley - and so my blog began. After sharing experiences with several other mothers who have lost a baby, I realised that it seems to be a lot more common than anybody is aware of, yet it is something that is uncomfortable to talk about. I hope that by sharing my story, it helps somebody even in some small way.
What is your blogging philosophy?
To always remain honest about my experience and to make an effort to share how I am feeling to help others feel less alone.
I have been blogging since...
