“A wife who loses a husband is called a widow.  A husband who loses a wife is called a widower.  A child who loses his/her parents is called an orphan.  But there is no word for a parent who loses a child, that’s how awful the loss is!”  Jay Neugeboren

Losing a child is one of the most devastating and lonely events which can happen to a human being.   I wish that none of us lived in a world without our child/children.  However, the reality is that parents from every religion, class and country have outlived their children.

Every year since Jake (and then Sawyer) died we have walked in the Atlanta Walk to Remember.   It is an event to connect parents and families together to express grief and remember our babies, and to raise awareness.  It is not a fundraiser.

It is just a time to remember our lost babies together.

This year the walk  will be held on October 6th.  For more information and/or to register for the walk click the following link:

  1. The text is fine when I click on the link “read more of this post”. I think it was just the emailed version that had wonky text.

    Great quotes. I know you have used that before, but it still resonates.

  3. Thinking of you and your family.

  4. Thinking of you and supporting you on your walk — may it be healing for you and all the others.

  5. I wish I lived closer, I would love to support you on this day. You do so many great things to keep the memories of Jake and Sawyer alive. That is so great, especially for Fletcher and Alyssa. Well done my friend.
