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.
