In The King Tide

Both Give Grief a Voice writers, Lisa and April, interviewed Mollie’s parents. After the interview, the writers decided that Lisa would write Mahnie’s story while April wrote Chris’s. 

Every family deals with the loss of a child differently, and that’s true of couples as well. There is no “Mother” version or “Father” version of this kind of grief. One of the strengths of the project is letting everyone’s experience speak for themselves. 

The first part of the following excerpt is taken from Mahnie’s story, while the second part is taken from Chris’s story. Please enjoy.
