"Outreach for Healing" Sharing and Caring tied with SA - Advocacy and Awareness in the NEWS
SA mom, Kimberly Chanel's thoughts after being part of the filming: "Today I had an opportunity to participate in the filming of a segment with Fox 5 Atlanta regarding child loss and the importance of support groups. When I was at an all time low, my linesister Audrey reached out to her friend seeking ways to help me. I will forever be thankful to Lydia for taking the time to pick me up and take me to my first SA group meeting only 3 weeks after my loss. Although it's a group no parent wants to be a part of, you realize you're not alone. You feel comfortable letting your raw emotions show because you know they get it. Healing is possible and it does happen, but having a support system plays a major role in that. For me, a lot of that support came through SAe and the friends I made in the group. We're thankful for Marcia for all she has done in the 30 pyears of SA. She's been a major part of the healing process for many families. Pregnancy loss will always be a topic that is near and dear to me. Sharing my story was a major part of my healing. We will forever remember Phara and do all we can to keep her memory alive. We hope you will tune in at 5pm on tomorrow to watch the first segment.

"SA helped keep me from drowning in my sea of grief."
"You made me feel normal in my grief, and you helped me see that eventually life would once again, be worth living. I just wanted you to know that I hold you in the highest esteem. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for all you do." 12/2004

Online Support for Emotional Healing
Understanding the Pregnancy & Newborn Loss Community & SHARE Atlanta...
Special Needs & Coping...
Specific Types of Losses..Preterm Diagnosis of fatal/short life expectancy, etc.
SA Partners with Hospice Atlanta for support during this time...."Preterm Diagnosis-fatal/short life expectancy Menu - Perinatal and Newborn Hospice Support now available...contact email@example.com for correct information for Atlanta area hospice."
NTLMDTS is a nationally organized group of volunteer photographers who come to your hospital room and lovingly and gently take pictures soon after our babies are born. Many hospitals know about NILMDTS, so ask. If you know that your baby has died or has had a Preterm Diagnosis of a fatal/short life expectancy, you may call them and arrange for them to come to your hospital room. SA parents who have been blessed to have them have some of the most tender and loving pictures I have ever seen. And, the experience has been one of many blessings. (Marcia)
"Babyland" in Arlington Memorial Park Cemetery in
Join with a positive group of healing parents that began online in 1997...
SHARE Atlanta (SA) was one of the first sites to have interactive email exchange..long before forums and blogs. What parents were saying and experiencing then is much like it is today. Though, there is an increase in medical and emotional support because of advocacy and awareness programs. Reading through others' stories can help you understand that others have "been there" and survived. Healing does happen.
Please take your time. Our needs change as we move t-h-r-o-u-g-h the process of grief in order to heal. As bereaved parents, ourselves, we understand the need to slowly work through your grief.
Parents helping parents to heal....
We offer this site, forums, our groups, and materials to help you as you heal. We have found that giving back to our community in memory of our babies is healing and a wonderfully, positive way to remember these special children.
