On July 3rd 2016 we stood in the field of an old dairy farm letting blue confetti rain down on us as we had our gender reveal photographed. A boy. A second boy. We had already known for about a week, but were so excited to announce it in a special way. This was our rainbow baby, our fertility treatment baby, so I had wanted to have every milestone of the pregnancy documented and celebrated. I posted our announcement that evening, a day before I’d planned to because I was too excited to wait.
A year later to the day, he was gone.
