Day 7: What to Say

Day 7. What To Say We all talk about the bad things people say to us but we rarely focus on the good that people say to us. Share a tip for those who don’t have any idea on what to say. Write it down – photograph it.



Something that I struggled with for some time was the seemingly insensitive things that people would say. It took me awhile to realize that for the most part, they really, truly meant well....they just didn't know what to say. Since October is the month for raising awareness about pregnancy and infant loss, hopefully these posts have given a little insight into things that may be hurtful to someone who has lost their child (even if you never would have thought it could be hurtful) and maybe some things that would help. You don't have to have the magic words, because there are none. Just be available and even just crying with someone or saying "I'm sorry" goes a long ways. Thank you all for walking this journey with us!!
