.....They will be forever in our hearts...
SHARE Atlanta member, Teresa Cochran shared...
“Parent your child...do things for other children that you might do for your baby that died. Then, your child’s presence continues to mean something special to you.”
Teresa joins us each year at our February Women's meeting - Evan’s anniversary - to share her path of healing and to support our newly bereaved parents. We treasure her uplifting story that includes the adoption (on Evan’s first anniversary!) of Devon. She shares how giving and doing things in memory of Evan gives her great comfort. It allows her to “parent” her child that will always be the closest to her heart.
Giving in memory of our babies is healing...
Collen Galloway, another SHARE Atlanta mom wrote about giving in memory of our children...
It always seems to get a little tougher during the Holidays as we miss those children who should be with us but aren't. One of the ways we remember Michael and Kelley is by giving gifts to a local toys for tots drive each year.
We chose the gifts that would be appropriate for Michael or Kelly if they were still with us. This year they would have been 5 so we will donate toys that a 5 year old boy and girl will enjoy in Michael and Kelley's memory.
We know that the children who receive the gifts will enjoy them in our children's memory.
We do outreach in memory of our children and in hopes of helping parents and children in the present time as well as in the future.
We also do these projects to increase the knowledge of SHARE Atlanta and the Pregnancy and Newborn Loss Community's Issues and Needs. Numerous of our members didn't know about our group until they saw us walking in our MOD's shirts; saw our Festival of Tree's memorial tree; or received a 4Bs' Blanket from us while they were in the hospital. Together we can make a difference.
