Fathers Grieve Too

Fathers Grieve Too

Infant Loss Grief | Missing a Lifetime of Little Moments

Grief is such a tricky thing.  It’s always in the back of my mind, which is fine because that means that Hope, Jonah, and January are always in my mind too.  But sometimes, unexpected moments can trigger grief to come roaring back to the surface.
