Candace BakerClarksville, TN – Editor’s Note:  Today is part one of a three-part series, as told by Candace Baker, about her recent miscarriage and the joy, pain, and grief she has been through.  She agreed to tell her story so that other’s would find strength and comfort in knowing that they were not alone.  Reader discretion is advised as some details about her experience are graphic and could be disturbing to some.  Now, in her own words:

My husband and I have two amazing little boys. Our oldest is six and our youngest is four and they are absolutely the most hilarious, brilliant, and wonderful children. I say that with clearly no bias.

We have two big dogs who act as the food spillage cleanup crew and a ferret who proves that my husband and I shouldn’t be allowed to go to a pet store without adult supervision.
