Coping with the loss of a child

The loss of a child is devastating and life-changing. Parental bereavement is something nobody should ever have to experience, and this grief is often felt by all. During the earliest stages of grief, it's normal to experience numbness and lasting pain. Over time, parents lean on their support system to build a path through this grief, discovering ways to honor their child's life and memory.
