Death of a child is:
Something few parents talk about before it happens.

Something parents keep telling themselves won’t happen to their child.

Something many parents are financially unprepared for.

Marked by shock, disbelief, and intense grief.

Wondering how you can possibly manage to go on.

An emptiness that cannot be filled.

One of the greatest challenges and tasks in life is facing the burial of your child. It has often been said, “When the doctor writes the death certificate for the child, they should write one for the parents, because a part of the parent dies too at that moment”.

With the death of a child, the world changes forever for the parents. What follows this tragic loss is an incredibly difficult journey. This situation is unbelievably devastating to the family. It is extremely difficult to focus on the simplest details, let alone the inevitable funeral. Parents suffer bouts of immense sadness. No one can image how overwhelming it is, unless you have also lost a child.

The unspeakable, unthinkable nightmare is losing a child. During that time of sorrow, the parents must prepare for a funeral.

Becoming a supporter of Micah’s Children Foundation is a way to walk with the bereaved parents, brothers, sisters, relatives and friends, as they find their way to peace.
