On Sunday, April 9, 2017, our twin boys, Ezra Lee and Leo Allen, died. They were born stillborn, just a day shy of 21 weeks. Any stillbirth is tragic. Yet, this loss was particularly painful, because this was supposed to be our double rainbow, the much awaited and longed for babies after we had already endured four early miscarriages within two years. We have no living children.
Now, we are simply trying to put one foot in front of the other, as we embark into a future far different than the one that we had imagined. In this blog, we hope to chronicle the journey of our grief and our hope as we face life at the end of the rainbow.
