What hasn’t? I’ve utilized a lot of different support avenues. I’ve attended several support groups including the Pregnancy Loss Support Group of Austin and HOPE Perinatal Loss Group. The Pregnancy Loss Support Group of Austin has usually been a small, intimate gathering of parents. Husbands are allowed to attend and it is encouraged. I’ve always taken something positive away from the group and enjoyed talking about Luke and sharing grief struggles with people who have been there. The HOPE group is more structured, as it is a closed six week session with a fairly set agenda. The facilitator, Worth Kilcrease, offered a lot of positive insight to handling the different aspects of the loss and grieving process. It was also helpful to get to know and learn from other families. We all serve as an encouragement to each other, and I believe some lasting friendships will be made through this group. I also met one on one with Shereda James, a licensed counselor with the Hyde Park Counseling Center. Shereda was instrumental in giving me bible verses and instruction on how to love myself after the loss. She helped me identify that losing Luke wasn’t my fault. She reminded me of God’s love for me. After nearly two years I finally attended a gathering with Face2Face Austin. They host meetings at restaurants, happy hour spots, even one was at an awesome pedicure place! It’s very casual yet we were all able to share and connect through our stories. Regarding books, I highly recommend Grieving the Child I Never Knew. I read this right after my loss and found it spoke to me day in and day out. This book touched me so much that we actually include it in our LLO box. I’ve also read Heaven is For Real. There is one particular chapter that will strike all mothers who have lost, particularly through a miscarriage. It will give you encouragement that your baby is in Heaven and absolutely cannot wait to meet you. They also have a kids version, Heaven is For Real for Kids. I recently bought this to read to my daughter because she wanted a better perspective on what Heaven was like. She’s excited and knows her brother is up there waiting impatiently for her! The rest of the books listed on our page are in my arsenal and I plan to read them throughout the year. As for websites, I visit various ones. It really depends on what I’m in need of that day. I have found blogs from mother’s who have lost and those are especially humbling, powerful and resourceful. And lastly, I have several remembrance items to honor Luke. I love my Remembrance Ring from James Avery. It has his angel birthstone, a garnet. It’s also engraved with his name and angel birthday. The Piggies & Paws footprint angel is so special to me. I thought it was something I’d tuck away in my room but I actually display it on our mantel for all to see. Lastly, a friend gave me a necklace from Firefly Photo Jewelry. It’s precious, it has his name, and I get lots of compliments on it! As for my husband, he’s still searching out the perfect tattoo!
