A sweet sign from my baby ❤️ Visiting friends in Chicago and one of them found a picture of him on his phone that I had never seen before... I couldn't stop looking at it. I've seen all of Ollie's firsts... He won't have anymore. It was a real heart-filling experience to see this "first" 2 1/2 years after he passed ❤️ And my friends cried... they still hurt too... I'm not the only one hurting. Ollie is still impacting lives. Ollie's spirit brings forth these unexpected tender moments, our softer sides, unconditional love, and a reminder of how STRONG we are ❤️ So, he's really been on my mind since then. This bright little heart is just what I needed ❤️
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.
