We lost our Mercy Elizabeth after 13 short, beautiful days and were especially concerned about that impact on her siblings, who had so eagerly awaited her arrival. The love and support of our family and friends has led us to reach out to help other families who find themselves in a similar situation. We have been in their shoes and want to share resources that have helped us navigate our loss.
