Losing a baby is a terrible thing. Whether as a Miscarriage, still birth, difficulties at birth, cot death or the many other ways it can happen. Its a difficult thing to talk about and people still find it difficult to react and talk to people who have suffered about it. We have Lost six babies, so we know the pain and heart break it brings with it. But when someone close to us lost a child we also found it difficult to talk to the couple involved. I was really annoyed with myself because I didn't know how to react!
When we meet with people who have lost a child there is no perfect way to react. No sure fire way to ease their suffering or make things easier for them. The reality is you cant and it would be pointless and possibly damaging to try and bandage the situation. After much thought, prayer and consideration these are my thoughts on the matter.
Each child is unique and loved by its parents. Each child and experience is unique and they will feel the loss no matter how many children they have
