Children Die, Too: For Parents who are Experiencing the Death of a Child
Living after the death of a child is not done according to a fixed pattern of emotions. The various feelings and experiences are more like changes in the weather. About the time you believe the storm has passed, you find it returning to stir you again.
Some parents have described their grief as coming in waves. Just when you least expect it, you are struck by the wave and carried along with it. Grief is something you integrate into your life. You don’t “get through it” or “get over it.” You make it a part of you, just as your child will always be a part of you and never forgotten.
