Dealing with loss is something parents should never have to endure. Whether it be losing children, stillbirths, miscarriages, or infertility. The beloved children's authour, Robert Munsch and his wife lost two babies at birth and he chose to express this loss through song. The song is well-known for Canadian families as it is written into his book, "I'll Love You Forever."
He spoke about the song and how it came to him not long after the babies left them. He added that it was hard to eventually release the song and tell the story of a parent's love for their child - at any age. His story follows a mother and her son as she rocks him, "back and forth" every night while singing this song. It is truly a children's book that will bring tears to any parent's eyes.
Dealing with loss is different for every person and every family. There are a great number of resources out there for families in these terrible situations. Although, I don't think any book or website could replace the sharing with loved ones. Reach out. Talk to your families, friends, or partners about what you are dealing with. Seek further professional help if required. Even a miscarriage at 10 weeks along is still a loss for you and your family. That baby, though not grown, had a name, had a future - and most of all, that baby had your love.
