“What’s your baby’s name?” 

It’s the most beautiful question, and one that never fails to make a bereaved mama’s heart sing. I remember the first time Sara asked me about Maeve.

A Mother's Lost Loves

A Mother's Lost Loves

Having a miscarriage after years of trying to conceive is one of the most harrowing things a mother can experience. Imagine learning a part of your soul has separated from you to combine with a piece of your partner’s soul, and they’re dancing together in your womb, blissful and happy, until some unknown and cruel circumstance disrupts the music and stops their dance. That piece of soul has no option but to return to you, but now she is different. She has changed. Her song no longer matches the rest of the soul, and so she’ll spend the rest of her life trying to find that melody again.
