Today is Baby Brian's birthday. He would be 6 years old. I can only imagine what he would be like today, the toys he would play with and the friends he would have (other 6 year olds that live on our street that are living reminders of Brian)
If you have lost a baby, or know someone that has, I am here to say that, at first, the pain in your heart is unbearable. As a survivor of the pain, I can tell you that time does heal. The pain never truly goes away, but you do find a "place" for it within yourself. Hope, peace and healing do exist...you just have to make it through the journey to get there. And you will.
Several resources that have helped me find hope and healing:
Atlanta Perinatal Loss http://atlantapnl.com
SHARE Atlanta http://shareatlanta.org "The love stays...forever in our hearts"
Project: Storybooks For Healing http://mystorybooklady.com "Binding Hearts Together"

Please feel free to contact me if you have questions or need help. The worst thing anyone can do is go through the grief process alone especially when everyone around you has never experienced the loss of a baby. ~ Betty
