Parents of lost babies and potential of all kinds: come here to share the technicolour, the vividness, the despair, the heart-broken-open, the compassion we learn for others, having been through this mess — and see it reflected back at you, acknowledged and understood.

Thanks to photographer Xin Li and to artist Stephanie Sicore for their respective illustrations and photos.

"Please let me be the first person to punch the next person who tells you everything happens for a reason."

And others.

I heard about these on NPR and wanted to share.

Thank you Burning Eye,

It was very good! "Laughing is the best cure untill they really find one", which for us is very unlikely!
And just to let off a little bit more... of this noire humour... I have to tell about my 2 hamsters that died... there, i did it!

A sane insanity avoids insanity from lurking and pulling me down from my delicate balance!
2 weeks to go... just two more weeks withouth placental or cord problems, etc. etc... untill a rainbow shines new in this world!
