Some of you may know that our twin baby boys, Aidan and Michael were born and died on the 17th of November 2002. As long as I live I will never forget the pain of losing them. It was indescribable. Twelve years later, I found the strength to write about our babies in my fiction novel Butterfly Barn. I gave this life changing loss to one of my lead characters, Jessie. My hope was that it would somehow shine a light on the deep and silent grief many of us live with. I am overwhelmed by how Jessie’s story has touched the hearts of so many people. One of those people is the owner of this little cutie.
