My baby’s face
Posted by Tracy

Its been a long time – on 10th February it will be 42 years – and yet I still need to see my baby’s face.  I feel differently about my mum’s face, because although she is dead and her face has faded, I did know her face, it is in my mind’s eye.  For many years after her death, I saw her in others, the way she smiled, an angle of the eyes, the shape of her chin, until at last my grief was spent, and I LAID HER TO REST.

So how do I capture sight of my baby’s face?  First I have to…ask others to recognise there was a baby.
