THE MISSION

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
Please tell your story

A Few Good Signs

It seems Ms. Spring has finally arrived here in the Northeast. I kept noticing things this morning indicating her intention to stay, but I didn't get my hopes up until I found myself doing this:



and this:

What? No! The mere act of doing laundry isn't the shocking part! Well - it could be, but today I'm washing snowpants, and then - putting them away for the season!

And then I saw this:

Buds on my Emma's bush mean she's serious - mother nature I mean. But, just in case you were planning another quick trip...listen up - CANCEL THAT RETURN TRIP TICKET AND STAY PUT!

Happy Spring Everyone - Wherever you are!!!

Yay, spring!
I'm hanging laundry out today. We checked the growth of the rhubarb this morning with my neighbors waiting for the school bus (our little friend doesn't believe that it will be bigger than him in a short while). I want to be planning a play date at the park on Friday, but so many things to do.
