Trying to find a way to live my life without Lindsey.

by Alanna
(Calgary, Alberta)

Two years ago this September, my daughter fell and sprained her ankle. She went into labour two weeks early after the fall. Throughout her labour Lindsey was unable to weight-bear because of her sprained ankle. She was already a high risk pregnancy. She had a lot of problems with the delivery and had a c- section, after which she bled and went back to surgery. She threw blood clots to her lungs in recovery room. We never saw her again.
She never held her baby boy.

Lindsey was an amazing mother, friend and daughter. I have no words to describe how much I miss her and her two babies.

We don't see her children much anymore as Lindsey's husband started dating two months after her death. We had to go to court to receive a 5 hour visit every three weeks. I hope this all makes sense to you. I have to say that this is difficult to write.

Thank you for hearing my story

hope for you the best

I know this is really difficult for you. I am really sorry for your great loss.We often ask why when these things happen, it seems so senseless and tragic but God hears our cries and although he allows these things right now he offers us the comfort that one day he will reunite us with our loved ones again- John 5:28,29
I don't know how well that hope will sit with you but I hope it helps and I hope you will also find some resolution in being able to have a role in your grand children's life.

Such a loss
by: Gale

What a terrible loss - to lose your daughter and then the grandchildren is unimaginable. I will pray for you and hope that over time, you are able to establish a close relationship with those children. They so deserve to be in your life -
Peace and continue to carry on your daughters legacy by living your life and bringing out the best of her.
