Death of Baby/Child
The Lost Child Page


 


For a unique, compassionate, enlightened approach to coping with bereavement, "Back to Life" might be just what you are looking for. Read all about it here:
     Grief Guidebook

                 

Death of baby or child...

Welcome to the "Lost Baby or Child" page. We never compare losses when it comes to grief, but it is well known that losing a child is one of  the most profound, the most overwhelming, the most inconsolable of losses to deal with.

It violates the natural order of things--- your children are not supposed to die before you! Your love for your child is unconditional and pure--- perhaps the most profound of attachments you will ever have. You may feel rage at the injustice of it all. And lastly, you are likely to feel some guilt, no matter how random and blameless the death was.

As devastating as your loss is, we know that you will one day overcome this tragedy and find your way back to life without your baby.

May you begin to heal by telling others about the loss of your own special child, and also find some comfort in similar stories posted by other bereaved parents.

Ready to tell your story?  It's very easy, and there is no cost. Just click in and start writing below:

(*Tip: Compose your story first in Notepad or other simple word processor, make all your corrections, then copy and paste into the box below.)

 

Have you lost a child to cancer or other illness? You may want to help some Christopher Newport University students with a research project studying adult grief. The purpose of their study is to develop a measure of persistent bereavement which can be used to help people who are grieving. The study's title is "Measuring Persistent Bereavement in Parents Who Lost Children to Cancer/Illness." The survey takes approximately 20-30 minutes to complete.  All responses will be kept anonymous and only people directly involved with this project will have access to the surveys. We appreciate your time and consideration with this sensitive topic. If you would like to participate, the link to the survey is below:
