Guest post by Ezra's Daddy: Love's lessons from loss



Hi everybody,

Below is a link to a piece I wrote about Ezra, my father, and my personal experiences with grief over the past year or so.  It was published for Thanksgiving in the NBC News website, theGrio.com.

Beautiful, David- the silence needs to be broken, and you do that so powerfully. It's been an honor and a blessing to walk part of the way with you on this journey, and we can't wait to welcome Ezra's little brother to your very special family.

It is all so true. I wish there were more dads expressing their grief. My husband, Sunil is in so much pain but unfortunately we do not have many dads involved in our support group. We go for every meeting together but usually it is only women who come. I am emailing the link to your article to him. Hope it helps him. Sending vibes of health and well being to Sarah and little baby.
