Here are the top ten articles for the Child Loss Site! These rankings are live and get reset at the beginning of each month, so check back often to see what your fellow visitors are most interested in!

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. 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.

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. Grils, Dinner's Ready
Iíve always called it the bewitching hour. That hour before dinner. The hour when everyone melts down from their day. I miss it so much.

6. 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.

7. We Saw a Medium
It is a natural feeling to want to connect with your loved one after death. There is a need for reassurance that they are o.k. no matter what you may or may not believe.

8. Valentine's Day
Is Valentine's Day difficult for the grieving parent?

9. 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.

10. 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.
