Closure? Absolutely not.

There are some words I don’t like when applied to child loss.

Closure is one of them.

Closure implies a moment when our child’s absence is something we can walk away from or leave behind- like selling a house, handing off the keys to new owners and moving somewhere else.

That’s a pipe dream.

Who leaves their child behind?

My son is never left behind.

He is always, always, always in my heart and in my mind. ❤️

This is a record of my grief journey and a look into the life I didn't choose.
