Join me in Celebrating Children Gone Too Soon

It brings me joy when I have the opportunity to help bereaved parents share their stories. I believe sharing our experiences and the lessons we have learned is a critical part of being human. And being a part of a community.

This is why I am honoured to help celebrate babies gone too soon. The commemoration page is called Celebrating Sweeties. This is a place where lives lost to miscarriage, stillbirth, SIDS, early infant loss – and any kind of loss of children – can be openly shared and remembered. I welcome families to contribute their children that died at any age, for any reason. Every child needs to be celebrated. 

Celebrating Sweeties is a safe place where any image of any baby or older child is welcomed. And if you don’t have a picture, a name or even a nickname is good too. Sometimes is is healing to share ourselves openly like this. Vulnerability is so important. When I stopped pretending I was okay after my son died, I was actually able to “be real.” That realness helped me heal and bring Zachary with me forward into my life, in a healthy way.

It is with both joy and sadness that I want to share that we have new Sweeties to celebrate. I am sad that their lives were cut short, but also grateful for their lives in the first place.

Let me introduce you to some very important people:
