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.

Scrapbooking Tips

I have started seriously thinking about how I am going to scrapbook my son's memories. I don't have any photos of him but have some other things. Has anyone blogged about their own scrapbooking activies? Please share the link or just leave a comment with ideas you might have of how we can scrapbook our precious memories. Any free online resources you've found?

The addition of three new perspectives all from a different stage in the grief journey should prove to be a resourceful addition to our blog. Feel free to check out each ones story on their personal blogs, and given them all a warm welcome.

Our new look

We've updated the look here at the DBC blog after a few suggestions that the blog seemed "depressing" with its black color scheme. Let us know how you like the new look, and/or if anything is funky.

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?
