i've been there, and it was super tough! Help and support from my family and friends is what got me through. Keep anything you feel is sentimental. I have a box in the closet with her baby book, photo album with pictures of her, a few dresses i wanted to keep, and so on. I couldn't look at babies or baby clothes for a while. I would break down in tears walking by the infant section in Walmart. But it did get easier, and i know she's being taken great care of where she's at now and you have to think the same.There's not much more i can tell you, except that it takes time to heal. I got pregnant a few months later and had a very successful pregnancy. I now have a wonderful 19 month-old little boy. Good Luck, and I'm here if you need to talk :)
