I was hoping to get a list of ideas and make it sticky (if I can figure out how) so that people who are looking for advice can just look at the list. We've had people ask a few times.
So, what are your ideas?
For me, the worst things people can say are:
You're so strong (Like I really have a choice)
Everything happens for a reason/It was God's plan. (So God wanted my baby to die??)
You'll have to get over it eventually. (No, I will NEVER get over the loss of my baby)
The best things people did/said:
As much as it hurt/still hurts, I love to talk about my son! I love it when people say his name, and ask me about him.
People sent meals for about a month or so after Eliott died. It was nice to not have to worry about cooking.
I loved it when people sent cards, especially after the first few weeks. I remember being really upset when the cards stopped coming.
