I feel the need to have a place I can vent, somewhere my family is unlikely to find. Some feelings are just too personal for those who are around you to know, and with a pain like we have experienced sharing feelings could be hurtful (aka pain inducing/painful memory recalling) to those directly related to the situation.
Also, I want others to know that sometimes, even when you do everything right, life just sucks and that there are people out there that have been through it and they are not alone. Honestly, it hard for *me* not to feel alone when a condition so rare took the life of my sweet Riley. However, I know I am not alone and I want to have other families know the same.
