"The mention of my child's name may bring tears to my eyes, but it never fails to bring music to my ears. If you are really my friend, let me hear the beautiful music of his name. It soothes my broken heart and sings to my soul."

Especially for Friends

Friends of bereaved parents have incredible power to help throughout the grieving journey. Friends can offer objectivity that family members often cannot. Friends can encourage expression of the wide range of emotions experienced after a perinatal loss or a child loss. Bereaved parents feel validated when friends remember important days and openly speak about their child, 

A Story about Miscarriage

"You're the strongest woman I know and if anyone can make it through this, its you," was a helpful thought from a friend of mine. I also don't want people to pretend it didn't happen. Personally, I think the worst thing you can say is, "You can always try again". Miscarriages are physically terrifying too, so maybe just make her some soup and clean her house for her or something so she can relax. We can all use some extra nurturing. I think the best thing you can do is listen, not talk! When I had a miscarriage I could not believe what people said to me. Things like, "You can try again," "At least you weren't that far along," "Maybe it wasn't meant to be," and "Maybe next time you can take some extra vitamins," do not help! What amazed me is that some of these comments were made by educated women, one of whom was pregnant at the time. The fact is, when tragedy strikes, people just don't know how to respond. Personally I wanted to talk most to people who had experienced a similar situation before, even if they weren't my close friends."
