Like my son Henry, Empty Arms was born in May 2007. Since then Carol McMurrich has expanded the reach and offerings of Empty Arms Bereavement Services. I am so grateful for this organization and Carol’s friendship.

This November, the group’s blog features stories from community members. I believe that  telling our stories can help us heal—and can help others too. Certainly the stories of other parents whose baby had died helped me get through the early years of my grief.

Today, I’m sharing a piece of my story—one about an opening somebody made for me to tell about my baby.

What story do you need to tell?
