"How can we help?" is a question often asked of us. All people are different so what worked for us might not for someone else. But if youíre stuck wondering what to do, here are some things that we've found helpful during our tragic journey.
9. Wailing - A Physical Response to Grief

10. Blaming Yourself for the Death of Your Child
We can think of so many questions to ask ourselves why we didnít do more to prevent our childís death. We can very often ask these questions and blame ourselves for what has happened.
