The Necessity of Shock
We’ve been living under a cloak of shock. The cloak is velvety and soft, almost comforting, but very heavy and burdensome and at times feels like it might cover me up. Still, under it is a better place than being without it altogether.

Does Our Child Need Grief Support?
When Bella came home one day and told me that no one at her school had ever had a sister or brother die and that no one knew how she felt, my radar went on high. Was she telling us she felt alone? Did she need to get help with a therapist or a counselor? What is a moment of feeling bad for herself?

The Pain of Silence
When Aine died we heard a new sound. Emptiness.

We Love to Say and Hear Her Name
We recognize how difficult it must be for others to know how to behave around us. It’s like walking on egg shells trying to say the right thing or not say the wrong thing to us, the emotionally fragile parents.

The Meaning of Regret
We all have experiences in our lives that have caused us to feel regret. Since our daughter died, the feeling of regret will haunt us forever.

Places and Things That Are Familiar
Trying to go back to familiar places or to redo some of the same activities is heart wrenching. You never know which place or activity is going to trigger a memory and if it does, how poignant will it be?

Fake It Till You Make It
Trying to live and move forward after your child dies is one life’s most tragic obstacles and I have found that the Fake it till you make saying applies under these circumstances, not so much as a formula to be upbeat but as a mantra of survival.

Do You Have Any Brothers or Sisters?
"Do you have any brothers and sisters?", the other mom asked nicely and politely. Several shock waves traveled through me. Within seconds, I underwent numerous emotions; disbelief, anger, sadness, fear. How do I answer?

Back to School After a Sibling Dies
How on earth do I get my living child (children) back to school after their sibling has died? Ideas to help you prepare for getting your loved one(s) back to school after their brother or sister has died.

Waiting for Autopsy Results
In recent weeks, a local story about a child who went missing from her home has been a topic of many news stories. Her town spent a week searching for her and I watched the story unfold with a heavy heart. An autopsy was conducted and results are still pending.
