1. It Doesn't Get Easier
My daughter died two and a half years ago and it feels like yesterday. I am not better; I’m just getting used to feeling this way.
2. 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.
3. It's Mother's Day Again
Today I write in honor of all moms who have lost their precious children.
4. A New Christmas
Learning to live with Christmas again...
5. Thank You Etiquette
What is the correct etiquette for thanking people for all of their kindnesses after your child dies? Do we have to thank everyone individually? Is there a time frame in which we should thank people? What do we say? And when?
6. Wailing - A Physical Response to Grief
I never quite knew why women would wail after a death of a loved one. It’s a cultural difference and/or a religious difference, I always thought. But now I understand. It's a physical response to grief.
7. Being in Public after Your Child Dies
Going back into the public domain can feel terrifying after your child dies. Will I bump into someone I know? Will a stranger know how sad I am? Will I burst into tears? These are some of the questions you'll ask yourself before you venture out again.
8. Surviving Siblings Must Face Their Own Mortality
How do you help your young child face their own mortality?
9. Making Arrangements after Your Child Dies
Thinking about funeral arrangements and how to do them is really the last thing you want to think about when your child dies. Logically, you know it has to be done. Emotionally, you are crippled. Here are a few things that worked for us.
10. Reaching Out for Support
Am I on the “right” track with my grieving process or am I so far gone in my thinking that I will never survive this? Do others feel the same or am I alone in my grief? Should I reach out for support?
