So, I’ve finally decided to write a book about my experiences over the last 3.5 years.  What I’m going to do with the book. . .I don’t know.  It’s mainly a way for me to remember how I got to where I am today and why I’m the way that I am.  Losing a child changes you in ways that I’m only beginning to see.  Maybe it will also help others who are going through similar hardships.  That is my prayer. 

I have a title and am already well into chapter three and have been writing for over 4 hours tonight.  I’m using excerpts from my blog which has made me dive back into the fall of 2007.  That was such a difficult time.  It’s amazing the things that you remember and the things that you forget.  I’m so grateful to have so many things written down.  I (thankfully)remember little about vent settings and oxygen requirements and the day to day NICU life.  I am currently in the middle of writing about the night Logan died and am flooded with emotion.  Please don’t ever forget about my son.  Hopefully, this book will be a way to remember him as well.  Let’s just hope that for the first time in my adult life, I actually finish writing a book.

I would love to read your book one of these days. I found your blog after I had lost one of my own twins to prematurity and it helped me a great deal.

Remembering your precious son, Logan xo

Awesome! I'm so glad you're writing. It will be a difficult book to write I'm sure, but what an awesome accomplishment when you finish.

I think that's a great idea to write a book. I hope it goes well and I know the Lord will use it (and you) in many ways we can't imagine!
