    She wasn't my biological daughter.

    But she was the closest I ever had. She was in my life from age 14 to 22. She was beautiful, brilliant, driven and so very wise. She cast a brilliant light into my life. I will never forget that day. My beautiful girl did what she loved most that day. On a hot sunny day...

    I Lost My Daughter As we near the 10 year mark

    I struggle more now than ever. For years I asked if I had healed. I had no clue. After many years I thought "well, enough time has passed, I MUST be "over" your loss. And then it happened. I tend to believe this one was on you. I really believe you put her into my life. I...

    Less Than Five Minutes And A Hole Never To Be Filled

    I lost my baby girl just a few minutes after her birth. Those moments stay in my mind and heart forever. The moments I held my butterfly, kissed her, hugged her. The moments I screamed and cried as I watched doctors try to revive her- try to get her tiny, tiny, newborn body to...

    3/23/14... Almost 10 years

    since Stormy-Denice's passing. How can it be? How can my 12 year old daughter be gone forever? It makes no sense that this life that I cared for with all my heart and soul was wiped out in one cataclysmic moment. What makes life? Where did it go? What can I do to bring it back?

    It is done. So many years later,

    I did what I told you I would NEVER do. I marked my body. I did it for you. It is so beautiful, as were you. On the shoulder we first touched, a rose, just for you. This bud is barely open, as your life had just begun. I struggle to understand why the pain and tears are so...
