At first everyone talked about him.
It’s what people do just after a person leaves this world and leaves behind only memories.
It comes natural before the unnatural fact of child loss settles in and begins to make everyone uncomfortable.
But at some point after the funeral and way before the tears dried up, people stopped feeling easy mentioning his name.

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.

I am so very sorry, dear heart! How terribly painful and awful. I can’t imagine what excuse they concocted in their own heads to justify such a thing. Praying that you feel the Father’s loving arms around you and that He fills your heart with His grace and strength. May you hear Him whisper, “Courage, My child” to your broken heart. ❤
