Still A Part of Us: A podcast about pregnancy loss, stillbirth, and infant loss

Nov 15, 2021

Dad Jeff tells of his beautiful daughter Amber who was born without kidneys and the struggle he and his wife have had with not only the loss of their daughter, but the second loss of a child due to bilateral renal agenesis. And we would like to wish a Happy Birthday to Amber Rae!
