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 > Happy Birthday, Bobby!

5 yrs ago today, you were born. A beautiful baby boy. Six pounds, six ounces. Brown hair, blue eyes. Perfect little rosy lips. A face a lot like your father's, whom you were named after. Thank you for coming into this world. We are sad you had to leave so soon. We miss you everyday. We wish we could see you blow those candles out, give you hugs and kisses, read you stories, take you camping, Happy Birthday, Bobby!
