On Ash Wednesday, 7 years ago, my friend Rebecca went to the hospital with us. Hours later, we brought our stillborn daughter into this world. While this day (2/10) isn't the actual date of her birth, today is Ash Wednesday and both days are clear reminders of my dear Samantha. I don't practice lent, I don't give up an item for a season, but this season is a rather humbling and reflective time for me each year. That cold February night changed our entire lives and sparked the desire in my heart to help other families going through similar situations..
