On May 9, 2016 we lost our baby, Oliver Paxton, in a miscarriage. It was the most devastating loss in our lives and the weeks and months after was full of loneliness and hurt. No one knew what to say or do for us. Our family scrambled to figure out what the new normal looked like. After our loss, we decided that Olie was given to us to help others in their journey of miscarriage, stillbirth, and child loss. We began to have conversations with friends, family, and complete strangers about the dark days of loss. All of the conversations involved one common theme-loneliness. From those conversations, Olie’s Footprints was born.
