Raising a Blended Family

For Caemon

on February 5, 2013

I have no words. If his moms ever read this, I am so, so sorry for your loss….

I really feel like I need to reach out to this community tonight. I am heartbroken, devastated, as I imagine all of us are… And yet all of our pain can’t even hold a tiny spark to what his moms must be feeling.

With tears pouring down my cheeks I find myself wondering “why” and “how?” I know, to the rest of the world, it would seem silly to be this devastated over a little boy I’ve never “met.” I think this is why I feel like I need to reach out to you all… because you GET it. Every one of us has a child that we’ve wished for, longed for, dreamed of and nurtured. We all carry our children or futurechildren around in our hearts, and we carry each others’ children as well. We carry each other. So no, I’ve never met Caemon, but I’ve met him. Through this blog and this community and his moms’ writing, I knew him.

And now, my heart is breaking for him, and his moms. I can’t believe i have to say this, but… Farewell to a strong little warrior, a fighter, a beautiful little light extinguished all too soon.

You will be missed, Caemon!

    We watch one another struggle to find our half, struggle to have a child, struggle to stay with our half, struggle to raise our children….this is not a struggle any of us should face, ever.
