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.

for one and all > Happy 5th Birthday Sarah

She would have been 5 today........5 years have gone by so quickly it seems. I always post here on her birthday to honour her with a group of people who share and can empathize with our story. I find it's hard for people in my day to day world to remember this date or seemingly talk about Sarah at all. Thank you for allowing me to share her memory with you.

These anniversaries are hard - remembering what might have been, accepting what was and embracing what is.

Much love. Happy Birthday my sweet Sarah.
