If you had asked me 2 years ago, I would have said that I have nothing to contribute or blog about. Now, I have a lifetime of indescribable pain and a roller coaster of slow healing to share with the world. It all began when my 2 year old daughter, Chloe, fell in the pool and went to heaven. Chlo Belle, as she was so lovingly called, came to my family from my brother, Steve, and his wife, Angie when she was only 5 months old. Although the adoption was never final, Chloe was considered our daughter from the first moment we saw her.

After Chloe went to heaven, I started writing her letters to feel close to her again. I like to look back at those letters and see how far I have come in my healing and how my faith has waivered but somehow survived. I continue to write to Chlo Belle when I am feeling lonely or sad, or when something exciting happens that I want her to know about. I feel she hears me somehow, and that is how I survive without my baby girl.

I would like to share those letters with you.
