Gus' Story

I've finally found the strength to tell the story of what happened those few days before and after Gus' death and decided to share it with more LDS mothers. You can find it here on Mormon Mommy Wars.

I love you all for your prayers and support.

Thank you.

I found your blog through Lindsi courts. We grew up next door to each other, My name is Stephanie. A girl I went to high school with has a blog page and her friend/relative Anjane also lost a baby. She had a still born, I think. Anyway I read both of your blogs. I am a stay at home mom with a lot of time on my hands. I know we dont know each other, but I have read your blog and I think you are amazing, A survivor to say the least, and a great writer. Here is Anjane's blog. I dont know her personally either, but she has gone through some of the same stuff and has posted her journey through it all.
She has her blog and then a blog devoted to her son Jackson that passed away. Here's her's and off to the right of hers, is her sons. Hopefully this helps.
God Bless.

Thanks so much for sharing your story about Gus! It was hard to read, so I know how hard it must have been to write. You did a fantastic job.

That is so awesome, sis. I'm so glad you got it all written down and so grateful you were willing to put it out for others to hear and learn from. It really is neat for us as your family to read, too, to know better what the experience has been like for you and how you've really been feeling. Thank you for sharing your thoughts. You are an incredible example to me and I know to many others as well. I love and admire you so much. Hill
