About the BellaOnline Child Loss Editor

Child Loss
My name is Christine Phillips. I am the mother of two beautiful daughters, Bella who is 6 and Aine who was 8.

Unfortunately, I am qualified to write on the subject of child loss based solely on my own personal experience of losing my oldest daughter. I wish I did not know anything about this subject.

For the last 9 years I’ve been fortunate enough to be a stay-at-home mom . My ”job” is my family. Prior to that I had several years experience in the IT world. I have never been published as a writer.

I’ve taken on the challenge of writing for this site because I need a place to put all my thoughts, to somehow piece them together and grieve. It made sense to me to do this in a public forum so that others like me don’t have to feel alone in their pain, that they can have a place they can go and identify with others in the same situations. To identify, not compare, and find some compassion from others who get it. Ultimately, I don’t want to let go of my daughter. Let this be her voice and the voices of other children who have left too soon.

Please feel welcome to share your thoughts, concerns, small triumphs and setbacks so that together we can learn how to move around the hole that exists in us forever.
