@texasbee:  First off, I’m so sorry for all you’ve been through. I can’t imagine the pain of having an adoption fall through! 🙁

I don’t have any experience with this issue (I’m too superstitious to buy anything for myself, or something), but since you are TTC now, maybe hold on to them if you feel like they don’t hold too many bad memories for you. If they’re bringing you pain, you should definitely let them go.

I hope you get your LO soon! <3

I am so sorry about your situation. You sounds like you have been through a significant amount of pain.

I did not purchase anything while TTC. Darling Husband wanted to put I didn’t want a constant reminder that we weren’t pregnant. Now that we are pregnant I still have not bought anything as I was nervous about a miscarriage and now I am just waiting a few more weeks until the gender reveal to start shopping. My cousin even gave me maternity clothes over a year ago and my mother kept them in her basement so I didn’t have to have them in my house.

Are there any local shelter or organizations that you are aware of. Maybe helping a mother in need by donating some of those items would be much more helpful than throwing away those items. I can’t imagine what you are going through I just think that maybe if the items you bought went to someone that really needed them, that might bring a little joy.

I think that the donation idea is a wonderful one and *hugs* for what you are going through.

my heart goes out to you…i second the idea of donation. knowing these items would brighten the spirits of someone less fortunate would give a new life to those pieces that hold sad memories. 🙂
