Hello and welcome to Marigold Moms! We’re so excited to build this community. As a quick introduction, we are Sarah and Natalie. We are sisters, best friends, and loss moms to two angel girls. Natalie is older, Sarah is taller. We love talking to each other, and somehow end up quoting about 20 movies a day without realizing it. We are next door neighbors, we drive our husbands crazy when we’re together because we both think the other person is the funniest person on the planet. Sarah is an extremely talented singer and songwriter and Natalie works as a wedding and family photographer. Sarah loves making cakes and will drop anything to serve someone in need and Natalie loves organizing and reading and received the Girl’s Camp leader award for being empathetic and observant (a very prestigious award, obviously). Natalie’s daughter Margot passed away in February of 2015 and Sarah’s daughter Alice passed away in January 2017.
Sarah and I have always been close, but after Alice died, we became closer than ever as we faced our losses as sisters. We depended on each other and helped each other mourn and grow and heal and even laugh in times when it seemed insane to laugh. We’re both still on that path to healing but having each other has helped us not only survive the heartache, but find joy even while the heartache exists.
We know not everyone has a sister they can cling to for dear life while they’re grieving, and that’s why we created Marigold Moms. We hope that this community will be a place where you can find resources to guide and support you through your loss, make lasting relationships with other moms who understand what you’re going through, and feel seen and heard in your grief.
Let us know what you would like to see as a part of this community, and how we can serve you and support you! We are working on a lot of exciting things and know this is just the beginning.
We love you!
Natalie & Sarah
