I lost my mom to cancer twelve years ago in January. The battle was long and horrible and the spark that was her died months before her body finally went. It took me years to get past my depression and insomnia. I just had my baby boy this January and I find myself crying again that she never got to meet her grandchild, that I never got to know her as one mom to another, that I can't ask her advice or share his little smiles with her. I didn't think it would be this hard, but it is.

Eresh, I am so sorry. I understand how you feel and want to give you a hug. Watching a parent suffer and fade away is the worst experience I have ever had in my life, so I hear what you're saying. I am sorry your mom and you had to go through all of that.

congrats on your new baby. I bet he is adorable with the little smiles and all....

I frequently have the same thought about my aunt never meeting my son.

Mommy to a wonderfully passionate little one

Thank you guys. I hesitated to post because I know it's so different from those people who've recently lost a friend or family member. It's just that my mom was a L&D nurse. She loved babies and I would have loved for her to be at Rowan's birth. So now I find myself thinking about her all the time and how I wish I could share this part of my life with her. Anyhow .. thank you.
