The 1 in 4 Project: Andrea

October is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness month. As many of you know, this is near and dear to my heart, as we have experienced multiple losses. I have been (and will continue to be throughout October) honored to spend time with fellow loss mamas, capturing their stories and love for their babies. Some of these stories will be shared with video, some text, some simply photographs. I welcome you to join in remembering our babies and bringing awareness and normalcy to talking about these short but precious lives.

Everett was born and died on Easter Sunday, April 16, 2017. There is a proverb that says, "The morning glory which blooms for an hour differs not at heart from the giant pine, which lives for a thousand years". Everett's heart and love were so strong that in the brief moment of physical nearness, his life and love reverberate through me. It is wounding to see anyone turn his life into anything other than love.

People often say how strong someone is when they survive the death of a loved one, especially a child. I didn't choose this. What other choice do we have but to survive and cling to the love? The love of so so so many people and beyond.
