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.

It's July and in honor of my late daughters birthday, an ebook of Footprints on the Heart is free to anyone who would like a copy.

Here is the link:

Footprints on the Heart: A Remembrance Anthology is a collection of Poetry and Prose by bereaved parents and families from different parts of the world who have been inspired and profoundly moved by the love and loss of their babies and children, which has inspired their moving and heartfelt words.

They speak of the ugliness, the truth and the depth of grief so unfathomable, and the reality of a loss no parent should have to endure.

However, if you have suffered any kind of loss, I am certain something will resonate with you.

Please feel free to share with anyone you think will benefit from it.

So much love,
