Hi Tracy, read your recent post about no one really wanting to talk about your lost child, like they never existed. It's so sad that friends and family feel so afraid to speak about your child. I'm in the same boat. If I go to a family gathering and bring my son up .... just some funny story, instead of sharing one of their own the subject gets changed quickly.
It's like friends and family are afraid that " if they bring your child's name up, it'll remind you that you no longer have that child...and it'll make you sad". Too bad that they can't come to the realization that " we think of our lost child 24/7 ". Too bad that they can't realize that " by bringing up our child " it'll makes us know that they actually remember that our child once lived" and what a great feeling that they have just given us.
