Waiting

emotional intelligence  mindfulness 

By Alex Petrou

You do not need to have lost a child to know what it is to question, to doubt yourself, or to hope against all odds for a miracle.

For the mamas out there whose hearts know the sharp sting and then the long deep ache of miscarriage, I see you. I feel your heart and I want you to know that you are not alone.

This is my story from the magical day I presented it live in front of hundreds in my home town of St. Louis, Missouri and, on Mother’s Day no less - our joys, our sadness and, most of all, our waiting.

I hope it speaks to your heart in some small way. More than anything, I hope my story encourages you to ask whatever it is that is on your heart, to listen, and to follow — even if (especially if) it doesn’t make “sense” to your head.
