Life After Loss: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

  • Libby,

    I always enjoy your posts. They are always so toughing and real. I too am not the same person I was before Arianna died, nothing about me is the same. Some days I don't want to go back to the person I was before but others I'd give anything to be selfish and naive again. Thank you so much for sharing everything, even the ugly. I think so many of us feel that way, its so hard not to. Lots of hugs.


  • This is a beautiful, honest post, Libby.  I love that you are so open, so straight forward with all that losing a child does to a person.  

    Thank you for being you.  I wish you didn't know the good, bad and ugly of living with loss but since I can't take that away from you, I can be glad that you're here, a part of this community, sharing your wisdom, your strength with us all.


  • Libby,

    Thank you so much for sharing this. You have such a way with words, and the magazine and Share are lucky to have you.

    Reading the Ugly part sent shivers, because that is how I feel too. And I also realize what a true miracle it is when someone conceives and then has a healthy baby.

    Thank you for putting that into words.

    Huge hugs,


  • I enjoyed your blog so much, and I understand  that feeling of seeing someone pregnant  and having baby so thank u for sharing I was feeling guilty for feeling that way but it's good to know that I'm not alone.

  • You really area a talented writer and have a real gift of insight. I hate to say that there's good from being in this group, but knowing you and the other moms in the loss community is truly a gift that our boys have given us.

    Love you!
