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.

Question

Someone on FB recently asked me how loosing my son affected my marraige. I thought that I would post that question here for all of you to answer. You can answer in the comment section, or on your own blog (just be sure to comment here with a link to your answer).


How has the death of your child affected your marraige/relationship?

I wrote a post on my personal blog: http://mystolenlight.blogspot.com/2010/08/my-marriage.html that you can check out, but the short of it was this: 1) I have a greater fear of loosing my husband and 2) I know that if our marraige can survive this, it can survive anything.

Wishing I could be more positive...my marriage is on the verge of ending. And although there were problems before my husband and I lost our little girl, the stress of losing a baby was almost too much to bear. Also, it didn't help that the level of support from his family really hurt me. I wish that things were different...and we've tried. Just not sure if it's enough at this point.

Our relationship is stronger. We've been thru the worst and no one could understand like we do how it feels.

I've been working on a post for a week about this very topic. By you asking the question it made me want to finish it. I was thinking I may never share it...it's hard to admit the problems that occur in marriage without the loss let alone in the midst of that heartache too.

This question has been on my mind for awhile now. Then after seeing you post it on here, I decided to actually blog about it. You can read it here:

It was very hard on our marriage, because men and women usually grieve differently. I was married for 4 yrs and we split 3 months after our son passed. I wanted to cry and scream and constantly talk about it and he didn't want to talk about it. I found that that was his way of grieving after we divorced.
