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 > Emotional day

Our rainbow turns one tomorrow, it took me forever to invite our family-friends to celebrate here tomorrow. It feels so strange, two of the families got kids that are the same age as my oldest living girl, and their second are the same age as little miss S, there aren't that many one year olds on this remote place we live, and it feels weird to invite ppl we really don't know.

Well, we invited ppl, my oldest (4yokr and I made cakes, cupcakes and a jelly-train today, she made birthdaycard for here little sister, she wraped crayons she bought for here own money and she talked about little miss s. "Mommy it's a pitty that S can't come, why can't she visit, it would have been great to play and eat cacke with here"

Tomorrow is supposed to be a joyful day, but I know it's gonna be a hard one.

I'm late to this Scandinavian Endo girl but I was thinking of you. I know it was hard but you did the best you could. Your four year old is so sweet, missing her sister. I know you were able to make it special for them. sending you a big hug.

Thank you AB <3

And yes, my 4 yo is sweet when it comes to here angel-sister. She is including, and very proud of here and that she is a big sister of two.

It turned out to be a good celebration, my rainbow loved it.
