Capture Your Grief: What Not To Say

Capture Your Grief Day 6: What Not To Say


  1. In 1979 I lost my beautiful baby girl to SIDS. Not many were familiar with SIDS or Crib Death in the U.S. and even fewer in other countries. I heard my share of the "What Not To Say" comments, but the one that stopped me in my tracks and left me dumbfounded was "Why'd you kill your baby?". My only response was to give them all the information packets I'd been given. They later apologized and I understood that they had not known better but that question echoes still.

  2. That is awful! I'm sorry that you had to endure the loss of your baby and then on top of that deal with hurtful comments from ignorant people.
