Tell us about you.
My name is Estephany, and I'm 23 years old. My boyfriend is Aaron.

Tell us about your baby or babies. What do you want people to know about them?
We lost two pregnancies in the same year; although they weren't born yet, to us they meant the world.

How did your baby and your grief journey change you as a person?
After each loss, I felt like I lost a different part of myself. I became lost and didn't know how to deal with every day life anymore.

Is there a way that you can pinpoint a change in your healing and grief journey because of your relationship with Empty Arms? 
I felt alone and like there wasn't any one out there who understood what I felt. Being a part of Empty Arms has helped me accept and learn to do better out in the real world.

What was the most important way Empty Arms offered you support?
Being caring and listening.

What else would you like to see Empty Arms accomplish? How do you envision the organization could make that happen?
Keep being yourself and keep doing what your doing. You guys are amazing.
