He was here, he was really here

This video is so hard to watch. It’s hard to share. But some days it almost feels like he wasn’t here. As life moves forward and everyone grows older there is a weird kind of emptiness that just can’t be explained. But he was here. So I share this during Congenital Heart Defect Awareness Week. My CHD warrior who was so proud to stand up there next to me as I told a little bit of his story. He was very much here.



Yes, even though some days everything about him feels so distant…he was really here.

I am a single mom to 3 wonderful boys- 2 on earth and one in heaven. I work for a local hospital helping people learn how to be healthier and access resources. I'm Catholic and have faith that I will one day see my son in heaven. This blog is about my journey- as I figure out who I am in the face of an unimaginable loss. Life is difficult but beauty can be found after the struggles.

  1. What a beautiful blessing. I love watching his posture as he reacts to your words. So wishing that we would have recorded our days with Nicholas but am thankful for the beautiful memories of our last day with him.
