Moving forward 5 years later

August 25 2005 is a day I will never forget.
It's a day that has changed my life forever, it was the day we found out William was a little boy and that he was special.
This day was even harder than the day that William died.
I have mixed emotions about this day it was hard surreal , it's the day I really got to know William.
I have relived this day over and over a million times.
There is never a good way to learn a child of your is going to die but I was so blessed that day to have a wonderful friend with me and a Dr. I new and grew to love give me the life changing news.
I know can think of this day with less pain, i still have panic attacks every year as the date nears but the heart wrenching pain is gone.
I now can say I am grateful for this journey all of it even letting William go.
I have learned so much,I have been able to help others and now have a better understanding of the love that Heavenly Father has for each of his children, especially me.
Even with my growth I am still excited for the day when William is placed back in my arms and I get to raise him and watch him grow.
I am so grateful for the knowledge that families are forever.

You definitely have touched others. You helped me through a similar trial in a way that nobody else could.
I was thinking of William yesterday. Now I know why.
