About this blog

The intent of this blog is to form an interactive community where parents of dead babies can come together and swap information, stories, tears, memories and encouragement. This is designed to be a neutral place. We are not religious nor are we anti-religious. Come as you are. You can sign the guest book, add your baby(ies) to the baby name memory list, review books on infant death, add warnings about movies and books that contain a dead baby, add your blog to our directory or a number of other things. Don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or would like to see something added to this blog. Rule One: be kind to each other. We're all in this together. We all suffer and miss our babies madly.

What's New?

If you are new to blogging and would like to be featured please let us know! Looking for parents who are new to this community and are looking for some peer support.

Upon visiting my son's memorial tree this evening I was surprised to see that some random stranger had planted flowers at the base of his tree. You can see that story here.

Have you experienced a random stranger honoring your child, and if so, in what way?

i just answered a similar question from butterfly mommies and posted a link to my blog there so i won't ramble long here:)

but i guess i've been so written off by a few but very important people in my life that i often dream that one day some one, any one will say or do something that remembers my child.

the kindest rememberences have been the comments and support i have gotten on my blog. we all go through such unique circumstances and feel so differently about things and yet, here in blog land, we can over look our differenecs and just support each other.this has been invaluable.

when i thought i was alone in this world, i found this blog! i ran across a particular mom's blog completely by accident and it took me here and i realized: THERE WERE OTHERS! and it blessed my socks off.

so:) YOU have given me one of the biggest blessings of all. thank you for keeping this blog. i'm sorry that you know this horrible pain and that you even had to start it but i'm so glad that you did.

the people at the cemetery and the funeral home were also very kind to me and they were total strangers.

I once came to visit my daughter's grave and saw that someone had placed a single, pink rose on each and every spot in the baby/child section of the cemetery.

I often find that someone has carefully arranged the angels on my daughter's grave. It's comforting to know that someone else visits her.
