In the news!!

Oh! And I'm featured in an Associated Press article about pregnancy/infant loss, that went out today, and has already been picked up by 67 news outlets across the country (including the Minneapolis Star Trib, my hometown paper)! Holy crap!

Read it here

Thanks, Frieda, for your wonderful article.

Xoxo (again)

I can't thank you enough for giving Freida our information. Kevin and I feel so blessed to have this opportunity to get our story out there and to be able to break the silence just a little bit. You're wonderful xo

What a wonderful article.

I cried reading that article. Kristin, I think you have changed the taboo of speaking about miscarriage and baby loss. Truly.

You and I started out on babycenter in the August 2010 boards with our due dates one day apart. I'm the orange inner tube girl. :)

I've continued reading and following your blog, cried tears right along with you, held on to my baby (after miscarriage) a little tighter...

You and Stevie have made a difference.

I know that will never replace your baby girl, however, she and you impact people every single day and I can only imagine how so very proud she is that YOU are her mama. ♥

Kristin, I was about to email you that the article had been published when I saw your post! I'm so happy that it is being picked up in so many papers and news outlets. I hope we can help others who have to face stillbirth, miscarriage or infant loss in the future. Thank you so much for sharing the story of your beautiful daughter, Stevie, with me. Best of luck in all that you do. Freida

Wow, your article really grabbed me - I'm still crying. Your story, your blog header photos, and your words beneath the photos - just powerful images.
I will pass on your inspiration and strength and hope to my clients who have also faced loss - that goes unrecognized by society (IVF failures as well as similar loss as you endured). thank you for sharing this part of your family with me and others.

I'm reminded of something I wrote after we lost our baby. The following is an excerpt from Heaven's Records:

Let’s take a walk into my wild imagination for a moment. I’ve often wondered how much our loved ones are allowed to see. I’m specifically referring to those that have passed on to Heaven. The Bible says that there will be no more crying there. One would have to question just how much of this old rotten earth they would be allowed to see. I find myself believing that every once in a while they are allowed to peak through tiny holes in Heaven. I’m hoping that God will allow them to see our finer moments. Maybe they are allowed to look into the great halls of Heaven’s records; not just the recorded past, but the recorded future.

I find myself thinking about the baby that we lost this past year. I can almost hear the pitter patter of tiny little feet as they make their way through heaven. I wonder if this little person will be full of questions. Our child is a citizen of Heaven, but I wonder what he or she will be told. Is our little one, who only knows the love of the Heavenly father, waiting for my arrival? Will this little person scour the record books of Heaven trying to find any glimpse of my life? Maybe, just maybe, the date of my arrival has not only been recorded, but it will be glanced upon by those little inquisitive eyes. I can just imagine our child making a daily trip to the hall of records. I can see this little person thumbing their way through each and every page until finding my name. Like most children, asking the angels will never be enough to satisfy their curiosity. They just have to see it for themselves. I find great comfort in knowing that my name has been written down in Heaven. I find peace in knowing that there are angels guarding my name, and very possibly, little fingers that are tracing over it.

We must never forget that someone is watching and waiting for our arrival.
