When her daughter was stillborn at full term in 2006, the author grappled with the limits of language to describe, explore, and share her experience of grief and life after loss. In this essay, the author reflects on the temporal layers of narrative about babyloss and ultimately realizes that writing to make meaning about life-changing losses continues over time.
