When our child died, the word “grief” became very real to us. We cried millions of tears, and we know that our heart will forever have an empty place reserved only for our child who is no longer living here on this earth. Society has often tried to tell us that we’re “stuck in grief”, and if we don’t “move on quickly” we are showing signs of weakness — especially a weak faith. What we know, though, is that our grief is not a sign of weakness, but rather an outward expression of the deep, ongoing love we have for our child. Never be ashamed to say you are grieving the loss of your child, but rather embrace the fact that you loved your child so much that your heart will forever feel the absence of him/her in your life! May God bless all those whose hearts are heavy today because of child loss!
