Tons of resources from support sites for parents, siblings, and grandparents to newsletters, keepsakes, and health news.
Active online community of women who have suffered loss in many forms. There are separate threads for different issues.
Song by Jessica Andrews and a video that many grieving parents have used in sevices to honor their lost little ones.
I have been there. Too many times. This is my story.
For all sad words of tongue and pen, the saddest are these, ‘It might have been.’

  3. I am the Mother of a fullterm stillborn son named My’Kel who recently turned 1 years old on January 19! Becoming a Bereaved Parent is the hardest thing in my life I have ever had to go through. I am from Kentucky & here in Kentucky parent’s who give birth to a stillborn do not receive a birth certificate! It’s hard enough coping with the loss of your only child but to deny a parent of what other living children’s parents receive is so much worse! Please log onto our website at & check out our work & our Stillborn Birth Certificate Petition. You do not have to live in KY to sign it or even to leave a comment. Every vote counts! Thank you, Missy Bereaved Parent
