Where life meets the written word…

We all search for meaning.

But when life’s stability slips away, what we knew may not be enough to carry us. In this journey, we have to learn what to hold on to and how to hold on deeper. It is a decision to hold on every day, even when stability returns.

That is why I am here, to help you to mark the beauty, joy, and pain in daily life and embrace all the present moment has to offer. Let’s start a conversation.

I am Kathryn Anne Casey, a graduate of Divine Mercy University, former life coach, freelance writer, housewife, mother of four children on earth and three in Heaven.

In 2015, the midwife told me she saw a cleft lip and possibly palate on the ultrasound screen.

In 2016, my son Peter was born with a mid-line cleft. When he was diagnosed failure to thrive at two-months-old, we began a long journey to save him.

Meanwhile, we learned I was expecting another baby.
Meanwhile, he was diagnosed with a
rare, life-threatening genetic condition called SPINT2.
Meanwhile, a doctor rushed into the ultrasound room
to tell my daughter had anencephaly,
she had no brain.
Meanwhile, as our lives changed and we embraced the cross,
we held fast the promise
“There would come a time when God would fill what he had emptied.”
And so he has.

Their story inspired this work.
