For those of you visiting after attending the Memorial at Southlake last evening, I welcome you to this place of comfort and healing. I also commend your strength and courage to walk through those doors. It is an extremely difficult thing to do. I only hope that you found some peace and warmth while being surrounded with other parents grieving their precious babies.
Please, have a look through The Angel Wings Memorial Boutique, visit Nicholas' Touch and try to find a connection, some solace in the words written. My posts are often raw, direct and vivid in description. Nicholas' Touch is a space where I can share my inner most anxieties about grieving the loss of our 3rd son. It is a space where my heart is exposed and my grief is very real. It is my hope that parents experiencing the loss of a child, at any stage in their grief journey, can find some hope in our experience.
I remember, early on, how often I would search out parents who were just a little further ahead in their journey. How desperate I was to hear their stories and relate. My heart ached for some proof that the anguish would somehow soften. That my broken soul could be wrapped in some peace somewhere down the road.
I hope that Nicholas' legacy and our voyage down this often tumultuous path can offer some hope and comfort in knowing that what you are feeling is okay. That you are not alone. This community can be one of the most compassionate, generous, and loving communities. We are here to help, to listen, to cry, to laugh... We are here to understand and we are here to support.
Much love to you and your babes,
