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.

parenting after loss > Happy birthday, Ellis

Saturday marked Ellis' second birthday. We went to the beach and made a flower mandala for him. It was so cold and windy, but also incredibly beautiful.

Happy birthday, sweet boy!
