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 > Your absence is felt out loud

In 1386 days, I've thought about you much more than 1386 times, the memories of you, though few, are what my heart holds onto to.

You live between what was, is and could've been, your absence is felt out loud...

I am so sorry. I know what you mean. The out loud part resonated with me a lot.

Perfectly said Jo-Anne. I'm so sorry for your loss. It's a vicious cycle of what was hoped for, the truth of the reality we face, and the dreams of a future that will never come to be.
Wishing everyone gentleness and love on this difficult path we walk.

Lovely words and so painfully true
