July is Bereaved Parents Month

Tomorrow will be Shane’s 5th birthday.

We were only privileged to celebrate one birthday with our little man. We made it an amazing day for him and us and everyone around us who loved and supported him. We will never forget those who took the time and came out to celebrate that day with us and especially him.

I keep seeing this image pop up in and around FB world. When I first saw it, it took my breath away. It’s probably the most poignant piece I’ve seen representing what we feel every day after the loss of Shane.

It’s also quite timely considering what tomorrow represents.

*July is Bereaved Parents Month. John Maddox posted this powerful photo with the following quote, “We may look as if we carry on with our lives as before. We may even have times of joy and happiness. Everything may seem “normal”. But THIS, “Emptiness” is how we all feel…all the time.”(The artwork is called Melancholy by Albert György in Geneva, Switzerland)
