I belong to a Facebook group that someone lovingly ‘deposited’ me into very early on. It’s called Silent Grief – Child Loss Support. And this resonated with me.
There are no warnings of heartbreak that come with the birth of a child. Every parent thinks it will be a lifetime of love and joy. But when your child dies, that thought is shattered. Along with your whole heart.
The pain of loss is so deep, deep to your very core. Yet every parent would say the same thing. “I’m so blessed to have had my child. I just wish it could have been longer.”
