Project Heal: Capture Your Grief: Wave of Light

In an effort to ease my hurting heart this Fall, I am participating in Project Heal: Capture Your Grief . It's a photography/storytelling project to honor the babies we've lost.

Day 15: Wave of Light

I would write more for this, but I am overwhelmed and  tired in every way: physically, spiritually, and emotionally. Tonight is Wave of Light, tomorrow it will be 3 years since my dear Ms. Lora went to heaven. It will be grief upon grief tomorrow...a different kind of grief, but grief nonetheless.

Tonight, my husband did me the honor of taking about half of the pictures, including the one above. He is an incredible photographer, and I feel like he did this remembrance justice.

I am so grateful for him. I am so grateful for the community of other loss mommas who have embraced me and loved me and shared their stories. I am so grateful for the short time I had my daughter. In the midst of all of this grief, I am grateful.


  1. Dear Joanna - sending you peaceful healing thoughts, prayers and hugs right through the screen. I can't begin to imagine what it would be like to go through something like this...and I'm sure no matter what time passes it doesn't ease. But I can pray and send loving thoughts. xoxo
