Working through these issues in this format is especially helpful in the early stages of grief when the shock and pain is still raw. It is very important to face the issues of loss in order to move on in a healthy manner through life.
We grow up thinking that babies aren't supposed to die. They are brand new humans, meant to outlive their parents and live in a future generation. Unfortunately, reality teaches us that this is not always the case. Fading into heaven, babies often prove to the world that they, too, are mortal. When a parent loses a child the world goes dark.
An outsider can only imagine the pain and try to ease the grief with words that do not always soothe. The stages of grief seem to be littered on a darkened road through a frightening forest, too terrifying to set foot upon, but it is only a matter of time, hope, support, and realization that sends the glistening light through the trees so that the journey may begin.
