How do you talk with your children about the loss of a baby? Your baby? Their sibling? A generation ago, it would have been kept hush-hush and ignored. Now, though, many parents include their living children in saying hello and good-bye to a baby brother or sister, whether that loss is sudden or an expected outcome after a negative prenatal diagnosis. I have recently read the account of how Kim and her husband prepared their young daughters for the upcoming birth and death of their brother Kyle. Read her story here (and keep the tissues close by), and be encouraged by their beautiful story of family love. Thank you for permission to share your story, Kim!
This blog gives us a place to talk about parenting after loss, as we remember our children in Heaven while raising our children on Earth. Please join the discussion!
Kristi is the mother of five children - two on Earth and three in Heaven. Her passion is for parents like her to know that they are not alone, and that there is hope in Jesus.
