CharlotteBench
It’s hard to believe that 12 months have passed. Last year Dave and I were expecting our first child, a daughter we named Charlotte. She was due in July but died halfway through the pregnancy, leaving us stunned and overwhelmed by grief.Today is the first anniversary of Charlotte’s death, and I want to take this opportunity to honor her.

While our lives were filled with tremendous pain after the loss, the support and kindness of others helped us move forward. Losing Charlotte also gave me a new sense of openness, encouraging me to embrace the world around me and express myself through writing and photography.

She is the reason I eventually started this blog, which has turned out to be an incredible and unexpected gift.
