hi..i just wanted you to know, I think of your entry "why we cry for the silent" all the time (though i wanted to comment on your most recent, to make sure you see it.)

i think of how you said you love on your new baby all day, but once a day, you weep for your sweet cara. people always tell me, i will find hope and joy agan when i have a new baby. but then i tell them how that's true, but about another mommy in the world who found her new hope and joy, but holds her and weeps for what was lost. that just really hit home for me. sadness on top of the joy. it's the true form of bittersweet. i mean it when i say, i probably think of that statement every day: love for the new baby while weeping for the first. there is a line in "an exact replica of a figment of my imagination" where she says "the love for the first magnifies the love for the second, and vice versa"

with love,
