Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness Day
I know that beyond this day, I think about the loss of my pregnancies often....possibly every day. Today I will be participating in the "Wave of Light" at 7PM, by lighting a candle of my own in remembrance of our loss. I'm sure this very small task will be very hard for me, especially since our last miscarriage is still so fresh in my mind. I know that there are so many others not only participating in this event, but remembering their own loss as well. Please participate in lighting a candle of your own at 7PM in any time zone, and think of your own loss or someone you know who's had a loss,

Me In A Nutshell
My name is Kristina and I'm 37. Originally I'm a Southern CA girl, and I'm now living in the "burbs" of Chicago. I love my son, my husband, my family, my fur babies, and my wonderful friends. I love wine, love to relax, love to have a good time, I'm a little adventurous, love to people watch, and I'm always down for a last minute road trip to virtually anywhere. I'm obsessed with the smell of racing fuel...weird I know - and fresh cut grass! I love to be home, but hate to sit at the house. If I'm excited I get pretty random - sometimes I talk about multiple subjects at once - I'll admit it's probably hard to keep up. My husband and I battled infertility for 5 years before having a successful pregnancy - our son Colton Charles was born September 30th, 2016, Although we have had success with the birth of Colton, our battle still continues with infertility. I've learned it's a wonderful & beautiful thing to share with others the journey that we've walked in the world of infertility. Welcome to our story.
