Twelve Days of Christmas

Holidays are so hard when your baby has died. (Excruciating even). While the world is happy and joyful and full of wonderment, your heart is broken and your joy is gone.

What should have been a time for family, love, and excitement has become something to avoid, something to forget, something you wish you could skip.

Especially in the first few years, the holiday season can feel massively overwhelming. It may have been your favorite time of year before, but now you wish you could just crawl into a dark cave for the next few months.

You are not alone <3.

This year, All That Love Can Do is hosting the 12 Days of Christmas to provide comfort and healing to babyloss families with broken hearts and empty arms.

Each day, beginning December 1st and ending December 12th, you can come to our Facebook Page and this Blog to find:

1. Stories of surviving the holidays from mamas, daddies, and grandparents in the loss community.
2. Suggestions on how to manage the stress, anxiety, and heartache of facing the holidays without your baby.
3. Ideas for how to incorporate your baby into your celebrations, including holiday craft tutorials.
4. Giveaways for your healing and comfort.

All babyloss families are welcome!

Will you join us?

I am definitely in need of this. It is our first holiday season since we lost our daughter and it is going to be so hard. She was Born Still on Dec. 30th last year. I have already felt the first of the waves..........it's going to be hard.

I'm struggling already. I lost my son in February this year, so first Christmas without him on what should have been his first Christmas with us. Thank you for doing this.

I lost my baby girl a year ago yesterday. Even though it's been a year it is still very difficult. I am so thankful you are doing this. Child loss is a pain that no parent should suffer and is so deep on so many levels.
