Rebuilding your family after child loss

Before we lost Brian we were a tight fun family. We were full of laughter, crazy moments, adventures, shared stories & a togetherness that could not be broken. The four of us were thick as thieves. Then our worst day happened & in a flash our family came crashing down. We were no longer what we once were. But I am here to tell you, your family can put the pieces back together again. Its not an easy road. You will be broken. You will make mistakes. The unhealed parts of you will unintentionally hurt the ones you love. Please know that its because of the immense pain you are in & not a lack of love for them. It takes time BUT I promise you, when you get to the other side of grief your family can once again be all what it was before loss. Be open with each other. Our hearts will never be the same but we carry Brian with us every single day. Be patient with yourself. It took what seemed like forever to learn how to be a happy, healthy, fun functioning family of three in the physical while honoring the fact that we will forever be a family of four. #doitforbrian
