To Moms Who Have Lost A Child

An essay
by Angela Miller

I have to tell you this. You didn’t fail. Not even a little. You are not a horrible mother.

You didn’t choose this. You didn’t want this to happen. You didn’t do anything wrong. It just happened. To you. Despite your begging, pleading, praying, hoping against all hope that it would not. Even though everything within you was screaming, no no no no no no no no no no!!!!

God didn’t do this to you to punish you, smite you, or to “teach you a lesson”. That is not God’s way. You could not have prevented this if you: tried harder, prayed harder, or if you were a “better” person. Nor if you ate better, loved harder, yoga-ed more, did x, y, z to the nth degree or any other way your mind tries to fill-in-the-blank. You could not have prevented this even if you could have predicted the future like no one can.

Gone but not Forgotten

Hi folks... August is almost here. We are working hard to make our first ever Overdose Awareness Walk a success in the Quad-Cities. Wanted to let you know the shirts are in and ready to order. We have Adult sizes S-M-Lg. and X-Lg. available. We were not able to order kids sizes this year. They were not available from the printer. However, please bring the kiddies. We welcome them to our walk. I will work on having kids sizes for next year. I also want to add that these shirt sizes run big so no worries getting one that fits! The cost for each shirt will be 8.00 dollars.
