About Us

Zach and I were married on April 2014 in a random park in Syracuse, NY on a cold spring day just before sunset. My sister and his best friend were our only witnesses to the biggest commitment of our lives. A few short months later we became pregnant with our beautiful angel daughter. On Feb 12, 2015 at 33 weeks pregnant I went into pre term labor which still remains a mystery why. After an emergency c-section I gave birth to our beautiful perfect daughter, but our worst nightmare had just begun. Due to complications during labor our beautiful baby had problems that were irreversible. That day, just a few short hours later, we had to make the horrible choice of letting our daughter go. Even now years later our life feels incomplete and our hearts are still broken. We are forced to move on with life and take it as it comes. This is our story of how we are grieving and living each day. We are not perfect but hope that we can help others that may find themselves in a similar tragedy.

Please feel free to read our full story regarding the loss of our beautiful daughter here.

    Crystal, I highly recommend stillbirthday.com for additional grief support. It helped me so much early on. I sadly feel like an expert on grief now. It’s our new normal. There’s no turning back from it. I learned to embrace my grief, make it a part of me. ))hugs((

      Thank you so much I’ll add it to my resources! I agree completely, grief becomes a part of you, it never leaves it always will be there. We can’t fight it because it’s a useless battle, we just have to embrace it xx
