The loss of a baby is a devastating reality that can happen to families in all countries. Experiencing the death of a baby can be both shocking and overwhelming. The intensity of grief will not last forever and lessen with time.

You have entered a community of grieving parents who have learned to create a new normal and maneuver through life without their child. Each loss is different and each person’s reaction to losing a child is different. Parents commonly can feel emotions such as shock, confusion, loss of control, jealousy, anger and disappointment.

When a small child dies, hopes are shattered, and parents are left to put the pieces of their lives back together – pieces that never fit the same way again. 

There are many ways to remember and honor your baby. Sharing your testimony enables others to know your baby’s story. We welcome you to share your story or memorial message here on our ISA website. You are not alone.
