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.

for one and all > Mothers Day

Today is Mother's Day here in Ireland where I am currently living. Sending love and hugs to every bereaved mother today.

I am in the UK so my first Mother's Day as a mother. Sadly no baby to mother.
Sending on my love to all of you today

Sending sympathy both of you and to all who are grieving on Mother's Day. Some days, you can't do anything but sit and think, "This is hard. This is just so hard." Mother's Day is like a twist of the knife.

Oh no I am dreading Mother's Day in the US. Timing-wise it will fall within a week of losing Luke.

Thinking of you mothers today.
