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 > Alice's Days


I don't know if you come around here much anymore. I know that I have not been here in 9 months. But our girls days are here once again... I wanted to reach out to you and S and the boys and let you know that I am thinking about you all and most importantly remembering Alice.

Oh, thank you so much for thinking of us, Grace's Mom. I have also been thinking of Grace this last week. Our girls were such gifts to us. Oh, how I wish they could be with us. I hope you and your beautiful family had a peaceful time remembering Grace. Our weekend has been sad and wistful but also with some nice moments. 4 years feels like a flash and an eternity all at once. Much love to you all!

P.S. Can you believe this? We decided to go to a "funny movie" on Saturday while my folks watched the kids so we went to "How to Be Single". Guess what Dakota Johnson's character's name is? YUP. I about died.
