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.

My son would be five today, if he had not been stillborn. Remembering him always...and the comfort I found here. Happy birthday my darling boy.
Happy birthday, sweet Hunter! Hugs to you, Shannon.
