Sisterhood of Loss & Support

If you are a bereaved parent would you please share your blog link here? Many many times people who stumble on this blog have just recently experienced the loss of a child. My hope is for them to find the community I found when Jenna passed away. No one should be alone in this.

Be sure to grab the button to add to your own blog to help spread the word.

    Such a great idea. I’ve been blogging about my loss for almost a year and am always looking for new BLM blogs to connect with.

    I do blog about our loss of our daughter and how it daily impacts our family, but my blog is not a dedicated loss-blog. I also blog about my living children and just life in general. I’m always concerned that it might be off-putting to some loss moms, but if I only blogged about Miranda it would not be a true picture of us.

      Lisa, I have to say my blog is the same way :) I love what you said- if we blogged only about the child we lost, it would not be a true picture. I hope you still decide to share your blog. :)

    Hi, I am the mother of 4 little angels. My twin girls, Sarah and Ruth were born still at 32 weeks gestation. I lost a child in 1970 early in pregnancy and another child in 1976 at 13 weeks. No matter what age gestation, a child is a child and a mother grieves for each one. My belief is that these unborn souls go to Jesus and that I will see them… I never even got to see any of my babies, but I will. Jesus’ promises are the only things that stop me from going insane with grief…. My blog is to encourage Christian women and touches on the infinite pain of pregnancy loss. Blessings, Glenys

    Just added my blog, “Being Marcellus’s Mommy.” And that’s what it’s about, about what it’s like to be Marcellus’s mommy. We lost Marcellus almost 5 months ago and my writing still tends to be very raw and emotional. Sometimes I’m worried that people will find it “too depressing,” but I recently decided to really put it out there. If I am able to reach out to one other loss mom, then sharing so much is definitely worth it. Thank you for putting this community together. I wish I had the time to read everyone’s blog!

    Because stillbirth wasn’t treated in a compassionate way 42 years ago, I am finding that I am still grieving… at the moment I feel God is working me through releasing my twins and healing. It is still painful to me…. thanks for the group here. Blessings!

    Christina says:

    My blog is not about the losses I have gone through in my life. I lost my first child when she was 2 days old after a full term pregnancy. She was born with vascular issues which required immediate surgery which she did not survive. After her death I had 3 miscarriages. I am now the mommy to my 3 children here with me, all through adoption. I started my home design blog in the early morning hours of what would have been my first daughters 11th birthday. It is my tribute to her and helps make a really difficult day a little easier. Thank you for the fantastic idea!

    Fran-
    Thank you so much for all the time and love you put into all your projects that let us all have outlets to connect and remember we are not alone through each of our own journeys. Also, only being 4weeks out from our loss, it comforts me in a bittersweet way to know my little Wyatt has so many beautiful playmates in Heaven. I hope others will find comfort in our journey as I have in theirs.
    Much love and many thanks!

    Many of my friends never knew of my pregnancy and therefore no nothing of my loss. How do you just tell someone like that? My close friends and my family know…but few really understand. This blog isn’t known to those who know me, but rather to those who know loss. To help me out as only those who understand can–thank you for giving me a place to share with you–my comrades in grief!

    Thank you so much for this! Reading a lot of these blogs has helped me cope with my baby’s loss. I started a blog in memory of my baby and hope to get a lot better at it with time, it’s difficult at times but I know God will give me strength to do so. God bless you all!

    Thank you for creating this sisterhood. Reading blogs and keeping my own has been such an incredible part of my healing journey. What an amazing way to welcome others to our community…one which is so important but also one that we never wanted to have to be a part of! Much healing and many blessings to all who come to this sacred space.

    Thank you for making this. It is a wonderful way to find blogs that we each related too. I lost my son Carter on May 17th, 2013 at 27 weeks to blood clots in the placenta. I decided to start a blog thanks to you, and still standing magazine. I wish you and every mother/father to be. I hope for peace, and a rainbow baby for each. Much love to you all.

      I am so sorry for your loss Amber. We never found out for sure, but we ended up finding out later that blood clots played a big role in how small our daughter was at birth (1 lb, 1oz). Much love to you. xxxx

    I also lost my baby Ethan on sept 2, 2010 after finding out he suffered sever brain damage we terminated the pregnancy at almost 6 months. It has been the hardest thing and can’t stand when people tell me things happen for a reason. 6 months after I lost Ethan my husband starting having an affair with his co rower and fooled me into getting pregnant 2 more times and they were unsuccessful! My husband left me for his coworker and recently found out he’s now having a baby with her. The pain and loss lives in my heart every single day and I can’t to about it anymore….because I should be over it and thank God there were no kids involved now that he has left. I’m looking for a supper group in the north/central NJ areas if anyone knows about one.

      My heart cries to hear your story. I wish I could give you a hug. I lost my daughter at 21 wks gestation, eight weeks ago. I have not experienced the same struggles that you have faced but I understand the pain of losing a dearly loved child. My prayers go out to you for healing and the strength to make it through each day. I am apart of the SHARE support group. Here is the link, http://www.nationalshare.org/, maybe there is one in your area.

    I lost my son at 23 weeks of pregnancy. I had such a perfect pregnancy, no aches, no morning sickness. I did everything right: I exercised, I ate really well (organic foods only, no junk)…and still, I’m here today, a mother with empty arms, a grieving mother.

    Thank you for having this.

    I’m a mother of 5 – 4 angels lost too soon and one miracle baby born 4 months ago. Nothing more gut wrenching then grieving the loss of your children lost too soon. I’ve started a Face of Infertility/Loss – Letter series on my ttc / loss blog. If you’d like to participate please feel free to comment on my blog.

    I have found such comfort in reading the stories of others who have walked this path before me. That is one of the main reasons I started my blog – that I might share that same comfort with others.

    I find myself writing so much but rather than posting, I wrote private letters where I seal up and encapsulate my pain. This pain and my apprehension to expose the true depth of my grief have rendered me temporarily quiet on my website. Perhaps posting my site here will inspire me. Thank you.
