In my early days of grief I needed HOPE. I needed to see that other families, other moms, could survive the unfathomable loss of their child. I was blessed to connect with a local mom who ultimately offered me HOPE. I also found a community of women online that supported and guided me throughout this lifelong journey. If you're looking for the same or just some understanding, let me be that person for you.
My name is Amie...
I am a wife, mama, teacher, founder of The Ruthie Lou Foundation and a Certified Grief Recovery Specialist®. My most sacred role is being mama to two my beautiful babes; my daughter Ruthie Lou who I hold in my heart and my son Reid Warren who I hold in my arms. I love this life yet will always grieve the old one, I am complete with a part forever missing.
I wasn't always a writer, my daughter inspired a love of the written word within me. Since her birth I have written regularly and looked for the appropriate platform to do so.
Life feels to have been chunked in 3 separate times; Ruthie Lou's life, my "rainbow" pregnancy with her brother and our new normal. Even in my blogs, I couldn't combine those writings altogether.
Here are the links to our life since the birth of Ruthie Lou:
