Magic and Loss

I got this from Lin's blog.

It is the blog of an L.A. man who's wife (a childhood friend of a friend of Lin's) gave birth to a baby girl. The pregnancy was difficult and ended in a c-section. The following day the mother was finally strong enough to get out of her hospital bed and go to see her baby. When she did, she suffered a blood clot and died.

What was begun as a blog for sharing baby photos and stories with the extended family became the intensely photographed and written record of life as a single father in L.A., dealing with incomprehensable loss. I defied clicking on the link for a few days. This morning I did.
