~Holding Space
Nearly 1 in 4 pregnancies ends in loss. To those families that experience that loss, it is devastating and not often talked about. Share’s mission is to serve those whose lives are touched by the tragic death of a baby through pregnancy loss, stillbirth or in the first few months of life. ~Holding Space was created to give those who are affected by loss, or for those who wish to reach out to those who have been affected by loss. For the knitter working through their grief, I hope that it is a comfort and brings solace to you as you take space to grieve and heal. May the finished product be a reminder of all those connected to you and may you feel the that support when you pull this shawl over your shoulders.
