Living with the loss of stillbirth and learning to live in the sunshine of our new normal.

I bought a black dress

A week ago, we broke Sophia's heart. It was the hardest thing we've ever done to her. We had to sit her down and tell her that her Gramma is dying. She's not just sick. She's not going to get better. We had to tell her that Gramma is going to die. It could be next week, it could be a few months. Her heart shattered. We told her that it's okay to be sad, and to be angry. But it's also okay to be happy and laugh and still feel normal. She's a strong girl, and I know that she's going to be okay. But the world will never be the same for her again.
