Not Black Friday...Rather, A Beautiful Friday

The day after Thankgiving in the States....crazy for some, rushing out to the stores and standing in lines as long as a parking lot. For others, well, they decide to skip all of that and have a different kind of day.

In our case, we had the honor of meeting another babylost couple who had also lost their triplets in the same month we lost our girls. Pete and Kerry are the first babylost parents we have ever met, and it was truly an amazing experience. From the first moment of hugging them to pieces at hello, until we parted later, I felt as though I knew these two all of my life. They are adorable and sweet and very tall (hehe). Ofcourse, I am very short so it was funny :)

It was a cold and blustery day and we had planned a balloon release. So we drove over to a local park and held onto our six balloons really tight and took a few pictures. I think if it wasn't so cold and windy we would have stayed a little longer and reflected, but believe me it was cold! So we then decided to go to lunch and just sat there talking for hours. It's a good thing the place wasn't busy or they would have been kicking us out for the table LOL. We just could not stop talking, and I had a few tears but mostly smiles, and it was amazing. All in all, a beautiful day, better than I could have imagined.

Kerry and Pete, thank you for visiting us and we just adore you both. Thank you for making it such a special day with us as we honored our babies together. You are both beautiful inside and out.

Love, Nan xoxo


  1. I don't think my comment went through. I was saying how wonderful it is that you were able to meet Pete & Kerry. You all have walked in each others shoes and the support between you should be wonderful. God Bless.

  2. So happy that you were able to connect with Kerry and Pete :) And loved that all of you were able to honor your angels together. I know that you all will remain friends for a long time and that's a beautiful thing.

    Thanks for sharing the them! You all look so darn cute :)

    Hugs and Love,

  3. I am so jealous!!! It sounds like a wounderful time...I wish I could have been there! xx

  4. Oh Nannie!! How fun! I love that you got to meet another baby lost mom, especially another triplet loss mommy! I love the pictures, you and Kerry are too cute together! I'm just hoping we can meet one day to hug too!! What a great black Friday celebration!

  5. Sounds like a wonderful day. *hugs*

  6. So neat to meet people you've connected with so deeply in real life. So very neat that you both were triplet mommies, too.

  7. It's amazing to meet other babylost parents and connect with them. I can so relate when you said it's as if you've known them your whole life. I felt that too when I had the wonderful opportunity to meet with some too.

  8. Amazing. I have met two babylost mommies and it has just been so wonderful. I wish I could meet everyone including you Nan!

    Thinking of you and your precious girls. *hugs*
