Rick and I have not previously been ready to share my story other than with close friends and family. On July 7, 2023 I gave birth to Lily Isabella Murphy and at just 7 months she was born still, but will never be still in our hearts. To find out your baby has stopped kicking, lost their heartbeat, and that they need to be delivered without the happy ending of bringing them … there are just no words for how that feels. This has been the most difficult life altering experience we have both faced together, but we are going through it together and surviving as we always do. There are no words for our loss other than we are thankful for each day and that we are still swimming in this thing we call life. No two days are the same and Rick and I are thankful for each day and the love and support we have received.
