:Huggeemom. I'm so sorry for the losses of your baby and of your mom. And I'm sad to hear that your H is not supportive of you in terms of your grief and loss. Is there a ritual that you could do, on your own or with your children, to honor your baby? Did you name your baby? If so, would you like to share your baby's name with us here? For your mom, is there something special you could do to remember her on her birthday or on the anniversary of her death? I wish you lots of peace and comfort.


:candle for your baby.

:candle for your mom.

I didn't want to need and not reply. I am so sorry that your husband is not able to reach out to you in your grieving. (((Hugs)))
