stillbirth, still breathing, and learning to live again one breath at a time.



Wife.  Educator.  Mother.  Friend.  

My life was forever changed May 2017 after experiencing the stillbirth of our fifth child--born perfect, silent, loved--two weeks before her due date.  I'm learning to live with life after loss, navigate through the all consuming waters of grief, and find hope, meaning, and perhaps glimpses of joy in a "new normal" shadowed by shame and disbelief.
I have started this blog as an avenue to process my emotions while living in the midst of this unknown.  My hope is that other mothers who also live with this disconcerting reality may find comfort and healing through the journey back to wholeness.
