One of the Reasons
When we lost our daughter in December of 2013, my wife and I knew that we wanted to do something to help others who were faced with the same difficult tragedy that we had just gone through. We wanted to be able to provide people with help and support. We wanted to be a place people could turn to when they felt that there was no one they could look to for help.
That is part of why we are doing it. The other part is the awareness piece. People do not realize that this sort of thing happens as often as it does. And when it does happen, they don’t know how to react. For some reason, they view the loss of a child as different then another type of loss. I am not sure why, but people seem to think that in the case of stillbirth, miscarriage, or fatal diagnosis, it is something different than any other loss or death people face in there lives.
