Bereaved Siblings

Parents aren't the only ones who grieve the loss of a child.  Siblings have watched Mommy's belly grow for months, felt the baby's kicks, and seen their little brother or sister on the ultrasound screen.  When the baby never comes home it can be a very confusing and heart breaking time for siblings.  Here are a few resources that other parents have found helpful. 

Bereavement Bears

This program, created by my friend Andrea Brown after the death of her son Harrison, collects and distributes teddy bears to bereaved siblings.
