Being a Mother of a Child who Died - on Mother's Day

 "Sadness moves from our skin into our bones. It becomes less visible, but no less who we are."     

Claire McCarthy


I am increasingly burying the depth of my sorrow to protect relationships of those around me. I want to be honest but am acutely aware life 'is what it is' and there is no point spreading negativity and sorrow wherever one goes. Skye, you remain my darling son and my soul is lost to me but with you, wherever you are.

This Mother's Day, instead of sharing how I feel, I thought I would share the eloquent and honest words of another mum.
