Be Still My Grieving Heart shares my personal experiences of pregnancy loss and my struggle through grief. It was a tough journey but I searched for ways to help heal my broken heart. One of the most important things for me was to feel my feelings. I wrote as much as I could, when I was happy, sad, angry, frustrated… I kept writing. After a few months I realized the journaling was helping me move through the intense pain. I’ve kept most of my journal entries and share them in the book to give an honest look at what grieving was like for me. I had so many days and moments that I felt like I was stuck in a little grey cloud but after a while I was able to see the beauty in life again.

LOVE is beautiful
If I didn’t have love in my life, my heart would be empty. I’m never going to give up on love. Rowan, you have grown so much love in our hearts. I feel like we are feeling more and loving more because of you. Love is what we have for you. I hope you can feel the enormous bursting love that we have in our hearts. We are in so much pain right now because of how much our hearts love you. When things are really dark and tough, I try to focus on the beauty of love.
