Tragedy. | The Momma Diaries

That seems to be my family's middle name lately. 

Between everything with my Dad's liver transplant, and the recent passing of my 23 year old cousin, you'd think that would be enough.


We just got a phone call this morning that Jared's cousin who was 37 weeks pregnant [Full freaking term], just lost her baby.  She didn't feel the baby move much yesterday so went to get checked out last night.  Her baby was already gone.  She delivered at 8:30 this morning.  A beautiful 6 pound little girl, Addison. 

Enough is enough.  I really don't know how much more my family can take. 

That's all I've got.


  1. I just wanted to say that when I read this it literally broke my heart. I am not a mother, but I am in the funeral service (well studying it) and know that these deaths are some of the hardest if not them being the hardest. I came across this website a few months ago and have recommended the site to a few parents I have had sit on in meetings. Please pass this site along, as I feel as it may help with the grieving process. My prayers go out to your family members and friends and you.
    (That's the site)

    x's and o's

  2. oh ps they open their order form every month on the 30th. It is a non-profit organization as well. These ladies are amazing and are even more amazing for what they do.

  3. Oh my god. I am so so terribly sorry for your recent losses.

    I too, am a mother of loss. I lost my firstborn Naomi Hope to severe preeclampsia. She was born at 28 weeks, 1 lb 12 oz. So perfect yet so tiny. I was with her every single day visiting her and getting updates. Everyone talked so highly of how "well" she was doing for the nicu. ANd 35 days later she got very very sick and it took over her small tiny body and she was taken away from me. It is the worst pain imangineable I cant even put into words.

    May my thoughts and prayers go out to her and your family/her family.

    You can send her to my blog or my email when she is ready to talk if she wants to. I am so terribly sorry.

  4. Aw, that is horrible. Full term, I can't even imagine. They say that most bad things that happen, happen in threes. Thank goodness you are at three. I send condolences to your family.


  5. wow this is so sad.. tears in my eyes as I leave this comment even. I am sending you a great big hug, and praying your life gets no more bad news.

  6. I am so sorry. someone in our family had this happen as well. No words can even come close.

  7. I don't even know what to say to this. What a terrible tragedy :(

  8. I can't even imagine.

    I'm so sorry for all of the awful things that have happened lately.

  9. How awful... my thoughts and prayers are with your cousin. I can't imagine how devastated they are.


Comments make me happy! I love to hear from my readers :)
