    This is not specifically about bereaved siblings but it is validating the long term effects of grief for bereaved children and young adults. Bereaved Siblings are in need of support too and BPUSA is expanding its resources for siblings.

    Thank you for posting this. For a long time, it was thought that children don't grieve. Articles like this help to educate us about the great impact it is on a child when a sibling or parent dies.

    Sibling are truly the forgotten mourners. I hope we are beginning to make a dent in that. As an adult child of loss I really resonate with Brook Griese's quote from the article "For many, childhood bereavement is a deeply painful and destabilizing experience that warrants attention and support long after the death,” And Lily Pinkus “From the moment life begins, human growth depends on accepting and mastering loss. The alternative to feeling loss in our gut is to risk irreversible damage to the life that remains.” And~ "if we teach children to mourn it will serve them for the rest of their lives." Thank you Liz Boenig and thank you Bereaved Parents of the USA for sharing this article. Keep up the great work!

    There are so many of us and holidays or special occasions make the loss of a loved one more pronounced. Do NOT be anxious around us. We may have our moments but we are not that fragile either. If a shared memory brings a tear or a smile, we still want them remembered, so it's okay to bring up the one who's gone and may even be quite uplifting to all♥️

    For me, I am so afraid my daughter will be forgotten by everyone but me. I think maybe we all feel that way. Please speak her name, speak of the fun memories you have of our gone to soon loved ones. The holidays are still difficult and in December it will be four years I lost my only child.
    My sweet sister just lost her only son 4 months ago and the pain and loss is still fresh. I pray for each person that has lost a child and for comfort and peace.

    I was just talking about my beloved Auntie Andye with Donna Black today! Still love her dearly, today and every day, always ❤️
    1 week ago Donna Black 2
    A dear friend lost her son a number of years ago. She was the first to explain to me that the greatest pain over time was that people didn't speak his name in front of her. It was like he didn't exist to them. She understood that people didn't want to bring up a painful memory, but as she said, "It's not like I forget about him and his life and his death for one minute!". From that time on, I have not been afraid to mention our dearly departed family and friends to their loved ones. I often see their eyes light up at the mention of the husband's/daughter's/son's/mother's name. It was a gift that she explained that to me. So yes, Kristen and I were talking about Andye just yesterday! She is very much alive in our memories. Hugs.

    1 week ago Betty Ria Dickinson Douglas
    Libbye Miller, thank you and I now know that Andye won’t be forgotten by the many that knew and loved her. This time of year is always difficult. So many memories and I feel such a loss. I love all of you and I’m glad we can share some of those memories together.

    for a long time before i lost my daughter, i felt drawn to stories of other parents who had lost young children. i like to think it was in some small way, preparation for what was to come. i remember this family now, though i don't remember how i originally stumbled upon their story. 💛

    I moved across country to start a better life.. It hurt so much knowing that I won't be able to put flowers on my Daughters grave anymore. I feel like I'm abandoning her. I miss her even more.
