Brandi Gillen Hing: After I suffered 2 second trimester miscarriages, one in 2009 and one in 2010, I felt very lost and alone. I found myself gravitating to people who had similar experiences, and looking into a future career for mental health support. I learned that sharing my experience with others helped lift some of the heaviness up off of me.

I met Carol in 2016 shortly after the birth of my second living child, and was instantly elated to find out that Empty Arms existed! There was a place, other than chance meetings with other bereaved parents (some of whom became my closest friends), where the truths I lived with every day as a bereaved parent could be talked about. I immediately wanted to be involved, and so set out on a path of becoming a facilitator for Empty Arms. So here I am a year later hoping to make safe the discussions that are hard, and hoping to be a supportive listener to anyone in need.
