Baby Steps Memorial Walk this Sunday

This Sunday, October 4, 2015, is the Baby Steps Memorial Walk in Edmonton, Alberta. I am honoured to share my reflections on this life after loss in the keynote speech. I was not able to speak at the Walk in August, as planned, because of a scary finding in my current pregnancy. If you want to read about my experience, you can click here.

Feeling much more optimistic, I am looking forward to connecting with the special community of those in and around Edmonton this Sunday. There are so many who have been through the death of a child and yet are so open, welcoming and compassionate. It is an incredible group of individuals.

I would encourage you, if you have lost a child, please consider attending the Baby Steps Walk or another event in your area. It truly makes a huge difference to take this journey with other people.

I feel in my core: we are not meant to live this life as solitary beings, but as members of a community.

Here is the information about this weekend’s event. If you attend and we have never met, please come up and say hi! I would love to meet you!
