This work is not easy but was always going to come. Fortunately, I have so many strong arms holding me up and helping me remain on my feet while I continue to show up in this motherhood and do this work.
I have always had a magical connection to music. I believe songs help us heal and process through our experiences better than almost anything else. Read about the song that we attach to our experience with Joe and how it helps us heal as we continue forward on our journey.
Simply put, Joseph was a miracle. His physical life was only a small part of the profound and lasting impression he made on my life. Something extraordinary occurred the day he was born. Come with me as I retell his birth story and share the true miracles of the day he entered the world.
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.
