Dear Bereaved Parent,
Birthdays are a celebration of life.
That changes after our child dies.
Even our own birthdays can sometimes feel like a betrayal
– why are we alive when they are not?
Their birthdays become reminders of what life could have been.
Finding gratitude in what is – a beautiful soul that graced our lives for a limited time – is hard work.
Time that ran out for them provides us with what we need to see life in a new way.
