Newly Bereaved

When a child dies, families mourn and begin the process of bereavement. Bereaved families experience many different feelings – disbelief, sadness, loneliness, fear, anger, regret, guilt, despair and personal loss.

These feelings are a part of the emotional reaction called “grief.” Sometimes these feelings of grief may be overwhelmingly intense. Some people tend to keep feelings inside, while others are able to express their grief openly.

Please remember, you are not alone.
