Dear Bereaved Parents,

Please allow me to extend my sincerest condolences to you for your loss. I am truly sorry that you have to experience this incredibly difficult and heartbreaking occurrence. Through this website, may you find comfort in knowing that you are not alone in your journey through grief.

Upon hearing about your tragedy, many people will not know how to react, so they seemingly act as if nothing has happened. This is because dealing with death and grieving are not subjects widely taught or even discussed. Unfortunately, this will lead to your own feelings of alienation and loneliness. Please be assured, your friends do want to help you - they just don't know how.

Dear Bereaved Family Members & Friends,

The kindest and most compassionate action you can take is to learn how to understand and deal with this complicated time in your loved ones' lives. Your help, comfort, and sensitive support can be very influential in how parents cope with the death of their baby and how they recover.

You are important, dear loved ones; grieving parents need you now more than ever.
