Despite the holiday season we had 11 parents coming to the meeting. The discussion was about going on holiday.Parents found it difficult to get ready for the holiday knowing that they do not need to pack for the child who died. They expressed the sadness they feel.
The child’s funeral was also discussed and each parents found this a very traumatic and incredibly sad day. They looked back and wondered how they actually survived the funeral. There is no right of wrong on how to arrange this last journey of their child.
There was real support among the parents throughout the evening.
Our next meeting will be on Thursday 15th September at 7.30 at AGE UK, The Peartree Centre, 1 Chadds Lane
