Joe and Chelsea were connected by the love they shared, and that will always exist between them. I hope she leans on that truth as she bravely faces each new day on her life’s path. She will have her loving family and her amazing friends to help her along the way, and she will always, always have her Joe.
Fireworks are quite special to our family. We make space in our lives at every opportunity to sit and appreciate them, because they have an extraordinary significance to us both... but more specifically, to Chris. On his birthday, I honor my best friend with a short story about his first Joe moment.
My journey since becoming a mother has taken me on a wild and amazing road. Writing has been an outlet for me to process and clarify as I move through life after losing my son. I am finally ready to let all of you in as I share the details of my experience as it was then, as well as how I am choosing to move forward. There is so much love here, and I am so eager to share it with you.
