Empty Cradles

A while back, in our local newspaper, there was an ongoing series named “Empty Cradles” profiling infant loss. I kept up with it, as it was a light in our dark world. It debuted shortly after we lost Sophia, and my thoughts were already on this topic 24/7. One editorial was particularly touching to me, in which a local woman described her experience with loss.  In response to it, I emailed the author to connect. Knowing there was someone else out there who went through very similar experiences to ours was comforting. Her description was poignant.

The Heartbreak of Infant Loss

I have been working on this memoir-style project for a while now, and I'm excited to share it with others. My hope is to get as wide an audience as possible, and to receive comments, suggestions, and ideas to improve and expand what I have. I also want to encourage others to become curious about the topic of babies, and the loss that can come with the adventures of trying to start a family. In the world of celebrating healthy babies, we who know otherwise need a voice too.
