Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day

Hi, I know it's been a while. Life is just going by and you tend to get bogged down by the responsibilities we all have. I am trying to juggle but hopefully will keep up with this blog. Tomorrow is Pregnancy and infant loss awareness day. My heart still aches for my Alyssa-Joy and Evan. Not a day goes by that I don't think of them, that I don't hold their brother close and thank God for him. So tomorrow at 7:00pm, please join me in the wave of light honoring all the babies gone too soon. If you don't personally know anyone who has suffered loss, light a candle in honor of Alyssa-Joy and Evan. Enjoying my expected, Marie

Sweet Israel Grayson Dillard

Grayson is being laid to rest today at 2:00 p.m. I cannot stop thinking about Tanika and her husband. My heart hurts and my eyes well with tears every time I think about them and the pain I know they are feeling. I am in awe of her incredible faith. She still is looking to God, her greatest source of strength. When I first heard the news I was driving on the 826 on my way to school. Just picture me in back to back traffic with tears streaming down my face :(.

I am so upset about this! I asked my husband "how much more can one family take?" I do not undertsand why.

A huge thank you to those of you who stopped by and to Michelle who posted something on her blog (her own accord). Baby Grayson's obituary can be accessed at
Please keep flooding her with love as we all know the days to come will be difficult.

I love you Tanika and Chris and I am sending prayers, love and hugs your way. I so wish I could be there with you today but know I am thinking about you.

A Favor Please?

A sweet blog friend who was such an encouragement to me when I was pregnant with Spencer just experienced a 4th loss. Her sweet Israel Grayson went to be with his sisters due to a cord incident. He was supposed to be delivered by C-Section on the Dec 16th. Please stop by and shower her with love. I have 131 followers and I am sure you all have many more. Please post this message on your blog and encourage your followers to shower her with love as well.

I am all too aware of how this community bands together and uplifts each other in our times of need. Please. If there is one thing I ask...... This is it. Israel Grayson will be laid to rest Tuesday at 2:00p.m. Tanika's blog is

Thank you!

Where I am Today

On July 24th, 2010, I wrote this post. I was thankfully feeling a lot better when I wrote that post. This year I am just angry. Angry at the drs., angry at life's circumstances. I am also asking why? Why me? Why us? Even though I know I will never get an answer, I am still asking in a defiant voice.

I am saddened that Spencer will only hear about his brother and sister. I am saddened that all he will have are pictures. I keep thinking I should have 3 children here to love and hold, but I have 2 in my heart and one in my arms. I long to hold them, to smell them, to hear their voices. I often wonder who they would be like. Me? Their dad? Would they be feisty? Would they be shy? I do know one thing. They would be loved oh so very much.

This day 2 years ago was horrible. The dr didn't take me seriously. Who knows how it could have turned out? If only she had listened! Today was the last time I felt my son move. The last time I would have a link to him. The last time he would hear my voice. The last time my heart would be whole.

I love and miss you my son. I love you to the moon and back........

Grieving the journey to my expected end,
