We are so excited to feature Jamie ♥️ After we lost Royce, Jamie was so fast to reach out and send love, support and even advice. We admire her so much! ⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
My name is Jamie and I am a mom to two beautiful children. One baby boy named Silas who is currently growing away in my belly, and one beautiful little girl named Isla Michelle who would be 2 years old this year. ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣Isla was our first child. She was born August 24, 2017. I remember when I found out I was pregnant with her I was beyond ecstatic. I cried with tears of joy that I finally was getting the chance to be a mother. I had a fairly easy pregnancy, no crazy complications, and Isla was healthy. I had her at 38 weeks 2 days. I went in for decreased movement and 4 hours later I was rushed back for an emergency c-section only to wake up to find out my baby girl was gone forever with no explanation other than she just didn’t make it. I was absolutely devastated.⁣

What helped me the most right after losing Isla was my friends and my family, but also connecting with other loss moms. Knowing I wasn’t the only mother in this world who lost their baby and knowing I wasn’t alone. When you lose a child you feel SO lost and SO alone, and it feels like the whole world is crashing down on you. So finding my group of loss moms brought a bit of clarity to my life and reminded me I will never be alone and I will always have someone to relate to.⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
My advice for someone after losing a child.. cry, be angry, vent, TALK ABOUT THEM. It’s okay to be upset at the world. Do not ever be scared to talk about your child who has passed away. It has been almost two years and I STILL cry for my daughter and ache for her to be in my arms. It DOES get easier, but the sadness is always there. You’ll always think about them and miss them and that is OKAY. Do not ever let anyone tell you different. ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
We miss our little girl every single day. She is the⁣⁣ reason I am a mother today and is forever in our hearts. I will never stop talking about her as I hope that I am able to tell the world how amazing she truly was. ♥️♥️♥️

“One year after we started trying, I finally consulted with my OBGYN. She started me off on Clomid. It didn’t work. I was on Clomid for MONTHS, until I realized I needed to take it a step further and seek a Reproductive Endocrinologist.“

“When my mom died in a car accident in 2017 I went to a dark place. I had been through this already when my dad died of a stroke in 2010 but this time my faith was faltering and I was flat out furious with God for doing this to me again."
