This is Oz, the precious baby who changed so many lives, and his beautiful mom, Kendrah. Oz’s birth and angel day is today, July 21st. 4 years that has felt like a second and a decade, all at once. Kendrah let me share in Oz’s life for the 9 months and 10 hours we knew him. He is the reason I can’t let go of my own son for very long. Oz changed our hearts, and made them grow. That he is gone makes our lips purse in pain and our dreams shatter. Future hopes and dreams are not so bright, but they are there, and we live, we remember.
I don’t know why we are pressured not to talk about lost children. But I do know that I have way too many girlfriends who are in this horrible, heart-wrenching club. I love you all. And I will remember all of your children.
