Quinn, /kwɪn/, [kʰw̥ɪn]; to bring light and joy by expressing yourself to your fullest capacity

What happens when you have everything you have ever wished for and then tragedy occurs and your child dies?

My name is Amie, and I am currently trying to figure out how to navigate the above scenario. I have the great privilege of being Quinn and Ivy's mom. My girls are my world. In September 2020 my 5 year old daughter Quinn was involved in an accident that resulted in her death. I started Cultivating Quinn as a means to share my experience with grief, child loss, and most importantly, the love I have for my daughters.

Quinn was light, joy, kindness, and the best kind of quirky. I hope to use this space as a place where I can cultivate more Quinn in my life, as I learn how to integrate the constant heartbreak that accompanies the death of a child.
