Welcome Mothers, Fathers, Grandmothers, Grandfathers, Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, Friends and anyone else who needs an ear...Please come with an open heart.

This is a place for anyone who has felt the loss of a child. Treat this as a communication haven regardless of how or when you felt your loss. My definition of loss: miscarriage at any stage, still birth regardless of week gestation, infant death at any month, and loss of a child even if your child was all grown up. For me they all hold the same root of devestation. None are more profound or more "easily" dealt with than another.

Please cry if you need to.
Please connect with others who are in your same space.
Please email me if you feel led to
Please comment so we know what you need

Show And Tell

This week for show and tell I am bringing...Emma Grace.

Until now her picture hasn't appeared on this site. It is time.

This is the only picture we have of her. It is everywhere. On the wall in the living room, the first page of her scrapbook and next to my bed so I see her everyday when I wake up. Although we have a stong spirit connection, it feels good to have at least one, worldly, tangible "thing" to hold onto.

Emma Grace...

My first born
My guiding light
The reason I stop and look; I used to keep right on walking
My inner voice

Now, please click back to see what everyone else is offering this week.
