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.

Dear Glow,

Ah. How I longed for this section to exist on Glow. I hated how so many refer to "recovery" in terms of having another baby. What about those of us who never have a living child? What does life look like? Where can that conversation take place?

I'm so glad you've made room for that conversation here.

Thank you,

Im glad this is here, especially this weekend, because of the season change and Mothers Day. I need to be reminded parenting other children is not the only way to heal.
