Websites to Help with Grieving
There are countless resources to help with grieving. Here are a few suggestions:
- Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep, nowilaymedowntosleep.org
A quote from the this organization’s website that beautifully addresses photography and death: “You do not have to look at the photographs right away, but they will be there when and if you are ready. You cannot take this moment back. Remembrance photography is a very important step in the healing process. Photographs are one of the most precious and tangible mementos that a parent can have, showing the love and bond that was given and shared with their baby. These portraits will last for generations, and will honour and remember a tiny life that is forever loved and cherished.”
