The article “Grief and healing: Mom adds sandbox to baby’s grave so son can ‘play’ with brother”, by A. Pawlowski states
“A grieving mom’s thoughtful gesture for her toddler is prompting tears and an outpouring of support from parents who have lost a child.”
This article talks about the loss of a new born and how a family is coping not the traditional way of hiding or keeping it to oneself.
This family built a memorial to the infant and encourages the still young but older brother to visit the memorial.
Hiding grief has been a standard for many generations but the healthy expression and sharing of feeling is a natural way to heal and prevent abnormal grief from developing.
