  1. Jackie,
    Your words capture much of what I am feeling. The weight of grief is crushing, and it’s difficult to reconcile “not forgetting” with “returning to normalcy”, whatever that is. My thoughts of how life might look was also based on fiction. Although I did not give physical birth to Maggie, I saw myself in the shape of her head and the inflections of her voice. I saw myself in my dying child as I snuggled up in bed with her toward the end. I think what you’ve done with Ana’s room is a nice balance of honoring her and moving forward in the present. God Bless you and your family. Thanks again for sharing.

    My heart hurts for you
    I am always here if you need me and just a short flight if you ever just want to get away even if it is only for a weekend .
