  • To My Friend Who Had A Miscarriage

    October 27, 2016

    Dear friend, When you told me that you miscarried your precious baby, my heart broke for you. I thought of the pain you would be in, both physically and emotionally, and I wished things were different. We’re both in this “club” now; this horrible club that no one ever wants to join. I feel as…

  • Pieces of Him

    October 18, 2016

    We had family pictures taken yesterday. This is only the second time in the eight years since he’s been gone we’ve done so, at least professionally.
