"Not only did I love him, but I could tell the universe loved him, too. More than others. He was different. After all, I would be a fool not to notice the way the sunshine played with his hair." Trying to wholly believe that Ollie is exactly where he should be ❤️ That he is at peace, no more of the pain that he faced here on Earth, and that I, as his Mom, have taken on his pain for him. As Mark said 11 months ago, what parent wouldn't do that for their child? I've always loved the lighting in this picture. Ollie looks celestial. He was so perfect... his curls, his skin, his eyelashes, his nose, his lips, his chin, everything ❤️
On January 3, 2013, my 1 yr old son, Ollie, passed away. That's where my life "before Ollie" ends and my grief journey begins... My new normal, my path toward healing, my life "after Ollie". I'm a grieving mother who believes in hope. This is my story.
