Project JoyWednesday, June 03, 2015
As the few people who have been
sharing my grief over the last four years have probably noticed traffic has
picked up here significantly. I've been making an effort to push for a bigger
online presence for a reason.
I found a niche in this baby loss world which hadn't been filled so I set out to fill it. I have a friend helping out, and she will be finished with her part of the project by the end of the summer.
I've mentioned "Project Joy" a few times.
Project Joy will be focusing on helping parents help their grieving kids, in a very unique way.
In addition to our own grief process, we had our other children's feelings to contend with- while our older children were able to process the complex feelings which come with grief, our little guy, who was eight when we lost Beatrix, had many questions which we found it difficult to answer. We needed help- a lot of help. Most of the focus, especially in a situation where parents are continuing a pregnancy after being given a poor diagnosis for their unborn child, is on mom.
I'm so pleased to announce that by the end of summer, via this blog and the Facebook page attached to it, I will be promoting the first of two phases of this project. This has been a dream of mine for a while- our experience with Beatrix was not the most peaceful, and I want to help other moms going through the same thing.
Here's a sneak peek at what we're doing:
