1. A Foundation in Her Honor
Itís a strange feeling, that of knowing you must physically do something so that you wonít perish in your sadness and yet so emotionally unmotivated you could just sit and do nothing forever.
2. Wailing - A Physical Response to Grief
I never quite knew why women would wail after a death of a loved one. Itís a cultural difference and/or a religious difference, I always thought. But now I understand. It's a physical response to grief.
3. Our Grief Forever Remains
In the early days after your child dies, it can be quite clear to the outside world what stage of grief you are in - shock, anger, etc. But as times passes, they see us functioning again, maybe even having a laugh. Do they think we're "over it"? We learn to hide our grief behind a mask.
4. A Butterfly Release
A unique group hosted a butterfly release for families whose children died while at their facility. What they gave me was comfort in the knowledge that I am embracing my child.
5. A Moment of Clarity
As the grief process shamelessly forces you on, you reach a point of desperately needing to find something to do, to take your mind away from the pain, if only for a moment. But at the same time, you donít want to not think of her for fear that you are losing her.
6. I Still Have To Be Mom
You don't even want to brush your teeth let alone be responsible for someone else. You just want to be numb. How is it possible that we can still be a mom to our living children?
7. Loss Of A Child - The First Week
There is no process for grieving. There is no right way to grieve. Here are some things that helped me through that first week after our daughter died.
8. Losing A Child
I feel like I did at the beginning...lost, angry, sad beyond belief. This is an article I wrote back then that resonates to me loudly today.
9. Being Told Your Child Is Dying
The nightmare and reality of being told that your child is going to die.
10. How to move your life forward, after death
learning to live again when you have nothing to live for
