{ About Me }

My name is Bethany...I'm married to Andre, and we have 4 children, three living and one in heaven. Our 3rd child, Gavin, was born on October 6, 2007, with a genetic condition called 'Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency' that affected his liver. He passed away on September 22, 2008, just 14 days before his 1st birthday, while waiting for the liver transplant that would have saved his life.

This journal is to help us, and those around us, through our journey of grief. Grief may not always be pretty, or easy, or comfortable, but I feel that it is sacred...ALL of it. The good, the bad, and yes, even the crazy! Through sharing my grief I validate our feelings, make connections, and most importantly, make lifelong friends. Feel free to e-mail us, or to pass along our info to someone else who is grieving.
