words about grief
I always loved words and believed they had magical powers. As I navigate a lifetime without my son, writing will provide an anchor in this storm of grief. Soon after Levi died, I searched for words like: "child loss," "my child died," and "surviving the loss of a child." Typing those words into google was painful, but I found peace in reading words of others. Thank you for being invested in my son's story: in the story of his 3 years on Earth and of the story and his legacy that will continue to be written.
I also share (over share?) about this process of grief on social media. I never thought I would experience the death of a child. And, I definitely never imagined I would share my thoughts so openly about child loss and this unimaginable grief. But, as Levi's death has taught me: we are all part of a shared human experience.
