On November 16th, 2016, our daughter Chickadee was stillborn after nine months of healthy pregnancy. Her feet never touched the ground.
The tears we shed yesterday have become life-giving rain, and these songs are the flowers that have bloomed from the depths of our grief. We offer this bouquet of flowers to Chickadee and to you. For those of you who are grieving the loss of a loved one, know that you are not alone.
