With my friend Amanda's permission, I plan to start blogging about William soon. Some of you may know that a fellow "August 06 baby family" lost their Aug 06 baby, William, on New Year's Eve. It has been a horrific, saddening, maddening, heartbreaking journey, and blogging about it has been in the back of my head, but I am feeling the urge to write about it more and more as of late. Amanda has agreed to let me write about William (I would never have proceeded otherwise), and so I plan to do just that. He was such a sweet boy; he had a smile that lit up a room; he had a beautiful life ahead of him; and now he is living his eternal reward, happy and content, and watching us from above.
But we are left, nonetheless, to pick up the pieces and move on without him. Therein lies the problem, the difficulty, and the ongoing struggle for all of us who knew and loved him.
More to come.
