  1. Thanks Megan for being brave enough to talk about something so private and painful in a public way. I personally haven’t had anything so tragic hit my home but have friends who have. It’s hard to know how to talk about it with them. I struggle with how can I help them? Do they want to talk about it? How do I let them know that I can just listen if they want. I’m So sorry to hear about your son. I hope that this blog is able to help you grieve and help others at the same time.

    1. Hi Tosha. I would say from my experience people love to talk about their loved one. Some people might be a little sensitive early on. The best comment people said to me were things like “I’m here if you want to take a walk” or “let me know if you would like to talk”. Sometimes even just asking about how they are holding up, so they need anything? This was one of the topics I was planning on posting about. It seems like a lot of friends and family didn’t say anything…mostly because they didn’t know what to say. Thank you for checking out my blog! I will have more up very soon!!

  2. Hi Megan,
    I’m so sorry for your loss. Your baby is in heaven with mine. I too have lost a baby. My angel passed away at 6 months of age. Her name was Gracie Olivia. She had Down syndrome and hypo plastic left heart. She spent 3 months in the hospital for surgeries, and finally came home in time for the holidays. Then after her heart catheter she had complications. She needed blood and they sent her home thinking she was ok. That is when everything went wrong. Her strength wasn’t enough and she never made it through her last heart surgery. She passed in my arms on March 23rd 2016. It was the hardest day of my life. I still miss her and wonder what kind of big sister she would have been to my now daughter, Mila. I don’t know your story, but I do understand your pain. It will come in waves and some days you will breakdown and cry. It is good to feel the pain. Grieving is necessary to heal. I do the heartwalk every year in her memory and I volunteer at the down syndrome organization as well. This helped me greatly. Finding something to keep your sons memories alive is hard, but it helps. Just know you will survive this and God gives the strongest people the most difficult hardships. Don’t lose your faith and take care. I wish I could hug you. I’m sending you a great big hug 🤗 right now. Also, remember you will always be his mommy and he knows you love him 💙🙏🏻

      1. Thanks Angela. I was blessed with another little baby and boy did God give me a healthy strong one this time! 😂 I’m in over my head at times. She is a handful, but the biggest joy in our lives. Thanks for keeping us in mind when we were in our darkest times. 🙏🏻❤️

  3. This is so wonderful that we can all come here to talk and express the hurt and sorrow and also the joys. I think it was such a blessing to meet and hold Harrison. He smelled so sweet. Like a little babe. Ill never forget watching movie with him as I held him and talked to him. I was blessed to be with him. Evem for just a short period of time. I feel his spirit sometimes still and he is a happy wonderful child.
