After losing Preslee, I realized both Pat and I had changed immensely, and I knew it would affect any future kids that we might have. I remember talking to my Father-in-law who had lost his older brother during his teen years. At the time, I didn’t know much about his situation, but after asking him a few questions, my eyes were opened to how much children really are affected by the loss of a sibling. Even though we didn’t have any living children at the time, I gained some insight what to do and not do with any future children we might have.
This article was recently posted, and I thought I’d share for any of you who are now raising children affected by the death of their sibling. I found it incredbly insightful.
