    Something Needs To Change

    June 23, 2018

    I always thought that medicine was so far advanced. I thought that if I listened to my doctor, I would be told everything I needed to know. So when, out of nowhere, my son suddenly died a few weeks before his due date, to say that I was blindsided was an understatement. How could I…

    Dads Grieve Too – And They Need Other Grieving Dads

    June 17, 2018

    Dads grieve too. The women in our loss community say it often and we say it with such passion. Dads grieve too. However, right after we finish that statement the discomfort settles in.

    Books About Stillbirth That Saved Me

    May 1, 2018

    I’ve always been an avid reader. After my daughter was stillborn, though, I couldn’t read. It took a long time to pick up a book or get online and read about babyloss. A friend of mine, a fellow bookworm, checked out all the books about stillbirth she could find. She encouraged me to read them,…

    Do I Love Them Enough?

    April 25, 2018

    I thank the Lord every day for the nurse that was assigned to me for Wyatt’s induction. She was the one that stayed by my side when I needed it when I wanted it, and even when I didn’t know that I needed or wanted it. Dorothy was meant to be my nurse. I was…
