It's true. Don't let the swing dance teachers know I'm calling it line dancing. They like to refer to these dances as "strolls" thank you very much!
But it's the truth....I'm a sucker for these "strolls".
Since about February I haven't even made an attempt to go back to classes yet as soon as the Shim Sham was mentioned there I am, farming my kids out to any willing relative who will look after them so I can get my fix!
Oh the shame!!!

And I got to thinking.....You know those people who always know the right thing to say in any situation. Well, my mum is not one of them. She has no idea how to be supportive at times like these. And why would she? She fell pregnant easily, never lost a baby and had three healthy kids. How could she possibly begin to imagine what it is like?
And even now that I have my two beautiful girls, there are comments that still cut close to my heart. Not just for me, but for all the wonderful women I know who so desperately want to be mothers. I have not forgotten the journey we have endured to get here so, yes, it does still hurt when people make flippant comments about the morning after pill or 'accidents'. I do not/have not/never will find these things amusing, not in the slightest......
And so I decided it was time to republish this.
As the opening paragraph suggests:
"If you know someone who has suffered a neonatal loss, or miscarriage, or even given birth to a child with disabilities, I urge you to read this. What you may learn could surprise you."
After being posted on an Australian Parenting Website, Essential Baby, it became apparent that so many women who have suffered such a loss were facing the same troubles and were happy for someone to have finally given them a "voice". To be "justified" in their thoughts and feelings. FINALLY!!!!
Thank you for taking the time to learn about the thoughts and feelings of others and how you can better support them on their journey.
