I am the Mother of a fullterm stillborn son named My'Kel who recently turned 1 years old on January 19! Becoming a Bereaved Parent is the hardest thing in my life I have ever had to go through. I am from Kentucky & here in Kentucky parent's who give birth to a stillborn do not receive a birth certificate! Are we the only state that doesn't receive a birth certificate? It's hard enough coping with the loss of your only child but to deny a parent of what other living children's parents receive is so much worse! Please log onto our website at www.mykelsangelsfoundation.com & check out our work & our Stillborn Birth Certificate Petition. You do not have to live in KY to sign it or even to leave a comment. Every vote counts!
I'm also seeking help & understanding on how to cope with his birth, death & burial all in one month. Does it get easier? PLEASE help!
Thank you, Missy Bereaved Parent
