Today I cried because I realised that this will be the fourth Christmas since my first born had passed away before taking his first breath. I have another two children now but I still feel grief during times of celebration. My children and I went to visit their brother at the cemetery this week and left him a present, and my daughter sung row row row your boat to him. I feel so blessed that I have beautiful children, but I still have sadness in my heart.

  • Aw bless ! I think it’s normal you miss your little boy especially around Christmas and Birthdays we feel the pain a bit more.

  • Hugs to you at this difficult time. It’s not easy when you have lost someone so close to your heart, but take joy in the spirit of Christmas with your other children.

  • my sister O/S

  • I’m so sorry for you. Little one. During the festivities we usually feel more the pain. :-(
