Remembering Our Loss
We all approach grief differently. Some of us want to see pictures, clothing, toys, favorite things our child used or that we planned for our kids to use. For me, Macie's room remains just as it was when she was alive with the exception of a bed instead of a crib. We still call it Macie's room even though she passed away in 2005. I sleep in there A LOT. Makes me feel better. I also have every item of clothing Macie ever wore. It's packed away but I will keep it forever. Over the years, I have bought things that I imagine Macie would have liked. I started quite a ridiculous American Girl collection a few years ago. There are countless other ways we remember our sweet girl. Below are some ideas for you to remember your loss. I'll keep adding to this section as I find new ways people maintain a connection to their loved one.
