When a child dies, you grieve not only the child but also the hopes and dreams you had for him or her. This grief can often be all encompassing, affecting you both emotionally and physically. It is important for you to allow yourself to grieve and acknowledge your feelings. Expressing emotions is part of the healing process.
There is no timetable for healing. Each person grieves and heals in his or her own way and at his or her own pace. We have gathered some resources that we hope you will find helpful, if not now than at some point on your grief journey.
