After the shocking loss of our daughter Kathryn Esme' Bashirian. She's the baby in the picture. This is her older sister Elizabeth. On September 11, 2014 Infant Loss Resources was really the only place that we had to turn. They provided us connections with parents who had also lost children unexpectedly under the age of one, and we would go to a monthly support group meeting where we would share our stories and learn other people's stories, and it really felt like the only place that we had that understood what we were going through and provided some sense of ' I don't want to say normalcy", because there is no normal after your healthy baby dies for no reason. But they provided us with a community of caring people.
