Halfway through Keri Young’s pregnancy, she and her husband, Royce, were blindsided with devastating news: their baby girl didn’t have a brain. In the blink of a moment, joy-filled expectation turned excruciatingly terminal.
What happened in the following months was tragic, heart-wrenching, and shockingly beautiful. To be honest, it feels ridiculously insufficient to try and conjure up adequate words—you’ll just have to join us at The Messy Table.
“The reunification is coming and this pain will be worth it.” —Keri Young
