Child loss is not a single event.
Of course the moment when the last breath leaves a body is noted and duly recorded because the law requires such. I can pull out Dominic’s death certificate (what an ugly thing to have to say about my child!) and it reads: Time of Death: 1:10 a.m. April 12, 2014.
But I didn’t know about it until 4: 15 that morning when the deputy rang the bell.
So for me, his death came then.

I am a shepherd, wife and mother of four amazing children, three that walk the earth with me and one who lives with Jesus. This is a record of my grief journey and a look into the life I didn't choose.

How I continue to connect with your through the life we didn’t choose death of our sons …. our Paul went to Heaven , Sunday April 5 , 2015 1:10 am . We too didn’t get the life crumbling news until 5:15 am with knock at our door from local police and police chaplain .
It was Easter morning
