The Nitty Gritty

Welcome to my first post.

My name is Shelbey and I am a mother to my angel Rylea Jane. As I write this, her passing is still incredibly fresh. At this point, most days I find it physically difficult to breathe as I wake up to realize my new reality without my daughter. I do not pretend to have all of the answers - I have no magic words that are going to make the pain for another loss family easier. It is a torment I feel all over and I would not wish it on my worst enemy. But however hard the days get, I still believe that it is my responsibility to live each day I am given in her honor. With that, part of my "healing" journey is to help others in any way that I can and to share our story with you. In this blog you are going to read the raw, nitty gritty details of what the pain is like when you lose a child. Maybe no one will read this and I will do it for just me. Maybe you will read this so you are thankful for your own living children. Maybe someone you love has lost a child and you are not sure what that is like or how you can help. Maybe you yourself have lost a child and can find a kindred spirit in this cold world. Whatever the reason is, I am happy you stopped by as a broken momma shares her heart with you.

Empty arms and a broken heart,

Rylea's mom
