"If you know someone who has lost a child, and you're afraid to mention them because you think you might make them sad by reminding them that they died--you're not reminding them. They didn't forget they died. What you're reminding them of is that you remembered that they lived, and that is a great gift." -Elizabeth Edwards.

and so true! To be honest, I'm afraid to speak about my baby with others as I know it make THEM feel uncomfortable and it just feeds into the myth that I should be "over it". What a mixed up world!!

What a wonderful quote. I struggle with this all the time because I have a letter in my head that I would love to send to someone who lost her daughter. I have always been afraid. I never wanted them/her to be having a nice day without any sorrow and then open my letter and be filled with grief
