Late Term and Child Loss

capture your grief day 22

Sorry again for posting the wrong day yesterday. We'll get back on track today.

Day 22: honour: Is there anything that you have done to honour your baby since they died? Did you give back to the community? Make a conscious decision to live as beautifully as possible? Take on the role of helping others in your situation? Maybe you work as an advocate for breaking the silence for our community.

    Day 22: Honour

    I find little ways to honour her memory, including being an advocate for baby loss and a resource for mothers who have lost babies. My DH and I also did a short video on our experience. 

    I am constantly looking for new ways to honour her memory and break the silence.

    I bought a ton of the "Mommy, Please Don't Cry" books since they brought us so much comfort. Knowing what we were given at the hospital when everything was so raw and unreal, I think this book would have been nice to receive. I wrote a special note and "in memory of our sweet girl, Mary Glen" in each of the books and gave them to the NICU to give to other parents who lose a child. I feel good knowing that Mary's memory will live on by bringing other people even a little comfort and peace that their little one is in such a wonderful place.

  • Day 22: Honor:

    We have done a few things to Honor Brooke, one being we had a brick with her name installed at a musical park for children in Keller, Texas. Brooke lived her whole short life in Keller and we always wanted her to be a part of Keller.

    Another thing we do is make donations to the CJ Foundation for SIDS to help research find a cause to SIDS so no more babies gain their wings so early.

    We participate in walks to remember and other memorial events for child loss. We want to do all things to remember Brooke and make sure the world never forgets her. Also want to spread awareness about pregnancy/infant loss and by taking part in these more people around us know how real this is.

    Brooke Elizabeth born Feb 17, 2013 grew wings May 9, 2013 @ 11 weeks & 4 days old from SIDS

  • Day 22. Honor:

    I honor my sons existence everyday! I'd like to continue to honor him by being there to support other women in my position. It's not easy being a mother to an angel baby. But it's easy being a friend and listening to others that just need an ear to hear them scream. I want to be your ears!
