Like most great parenting stories, this one begins with an overflowing toilet. If you have even one child, for long enough, inevitably they will cause at least one of your toilets to overflow. Probably more than once in their young lives. It could be diapers, Legos, or maybe Duplos (worse…bigger) or just too much toilet…
They already know so well, how to mend the world with their own hearts. They are both unafraid of the sound of grief.
It’s just that way for some parents. When some of us lose a child it hits so hard we just can’t seem to go on living. If the heart breaks completely the body can die.
