Holidays can be especially difficult after you have lost a child and my first Christmas after losing Micah was no exception. I was still wading through the deep waters of grief, but I had also become pregnant again. I was scared. And I was certain that this pregnancy would end in tragedy as well. It was a difficult holiday to navigate as I was surrounded by my family, people who seemed to be fully engrossed in the spirit of the season. I wish I could say that their joy was contagious, but over the course of the year, I had grown immune to joy.
