    I love your tattoo. It's beautiful. I'm so glad you had someone to cry with today. Grieving is normal and I'm so glad you're not trying to hold it all in. Big hugs to you my friend.

  2. Oh my, I just love this! Beautiful tattoo and story. I will be thinking about you today! 🙂

  3. So beautiful!! A foot tattoo is my next one! (I already have one on my wrist) I love that you are doing this. I think it would be good for me to do as well. I have always loved dandelions and their "wishes". Thinking of you today!

  5. Christina Hecht says:

    The ability to turn a day like today into a happy one for you is something that took me several years to do. You will always love them no matter how long it has been. And that tattoo really is a beautiful reminder and celebration of their life, even if it was short. Thank you for reminding me that is is ok to be sad and happy at the same time. 🙂

  6. So beautiful…. Hang in there my friend, I'm sure it's so hard sending many hugs your way.

    I love your tattoo. My due date is March 9th. I found out I was pregnant on July 1st, 2013, and when I was 11 weeks 3 days, I had an ultrasound that showed an abnormal NT reading. I then had a CVS procedure, and found out on August 26th that the baby had numerous chromosomal issues and was "incompatible with life" and was also risking my life. On August 28th I terminated the pregnancy. Hardest most unfair thing ever. So, I somewhat get what you're going through. I don't know if I have ever commented before, but I really enjoy your blog!

  25. Jenny says:

    I'm a pretty new follower so I wasn't around for the story to start. However I think this is a very sweet way to honor your babies. I'm glad you are finding some piece. Thank you for sharing your story. just beautiful.

  26. Kara says:

    I love it so much Courtney.

  27. I have been playing catch up with blogging and reading this has chills down my entire body and tears in my eyes. You are so inspiring, sweet mama. Love to you my friend <3.

  28. Chelsea Covington says:

    Hi! I follow on IG and new here to reading your blog. I've been thinking about this post a lot lately, and it really hurts my heart to know that someone/people/ you have gone through this. I can only imagine how hard it must be to lose a child in any state of pregnancy or life, but to try so hard at making one and put your mind, body and emotions through such a rollercoaster and still, nothing. I admire your strength, and bravery, I would not be able to do wall that you have done. I love your tattoo, and the meaning behind it!

  29. Anonymous says:

    Thank you for sharing your beautiful thoughts and your story of loss and then a peace and happiness!

  30. Hayley! says:

  31. I don't know why I had never read this before, but am so glad I just found it!!! You are SUCH a strong mama & I am so glad to "know" you. XOXO

  32. I just came upon this as I was reading back through your blog. God bless you girl. I know it was a little bit ago but what a sweet and beautiful reminder. And I am so glad you were blessed with Miss Mabel
