Winter Gaskin’s Story Raising Awareness About Infant Loss
After finding Nicola on Instagram a couple of months ago, I looked into her story and was incredibly saddened to see she had been through infant loss, but I was also encouraged by her incredible strength in sharing her story of her son. Putting her story, his loss and his face out there for the world to see, to help even just one other parent who has been through the same thing. Such an incredible strong thing to do, putting something so personal and emotional out there for the hope that she can support other people. Follow her on Instagram to share Winter’s Legacy.
