Brother and Sister

This is the only tangible thing I have of you. Since your brother or sister before you I never got to get something to have of them…. other than the memories I shared with both you while I carried you!

The day I would have held you in my arms for the first time is coming up in a couple weeks and instead of that I will be starting IVF to make your brother or sister.. I hope you know how much I love you both and always will!

Shelagh (she/her) brings with her a solid background as an admin in a variety of areas from business, academia and now with a charitable organization with the Pregnancy & Infant Loss Support Center. She feels passionate about working in a role that benefits others in the community.

Shelagh was exposed to bereavement and deep grief at an early age and it left her with a profound sense of how fragile life is and how we need to find joy and light wherever we can. She feels privileged to be able to take this sense with her into her role with PILSC while putting her strong admin skills to good use.
