Advice

I’ve just read some very thorough and well thought out advice to help out family friends of the bereaved.  One of the worst things that happens is when people don’t know what to say, so they don’t say anything.  It’s equally uncomfortable for us, but we would rather talk about our children instead of pretending like they never existed.  Please, please read and take the advice to heart the next time that you encounter someone that has lost a child.

Day 15 – Community

October 15th is infancy and pregnancy loss awareness day.  At 7 PM tonight, millions lit candles in remembrance of their little lives lost too soon.  While Benny wasn’t an infant, he was still so young when he passed.  Peace to my fellow mothers.  This candle’s for you little guy.
