Loss of an only child

I lost my first and only child Jackson after just 12 days. Everyone grieves differently so I will not begin to say that I know how you feel. But I know how it felt for my husband and myself. It is something that you are never quite sure if you are going to make it through. Find your "rock". Mine was my husband. Without him I don't know what I would have done. Now here we are, after several miscarriages and the lost of our first child, we are trying again. I can't even begin to describe how it feels to not know if this is going to end differently than the last pregnancy or if it does.. how odd it will feel to have one child when everyday you are reminded that there should be two..

I lost my son Jackson after he was on this earth for just 12 days. He was our first and only child. I know how it can feel and will forever feel. After several miscarriages I am now pregnant again and I fear how it will feel to have more children without my Jackson...

My 5 year old son passed away just over 5 years ago. Caiden was my only child. He passed away peacefully September 27th, 2008 after battling cancer for the second time. He was diagnosed with Acute Myelogenous Leukemia July 12, 2005. I miss Caiden more than words could ever describe.

Six years ago i lost my 9 year old son in an accident.I didnt know what i was going to do without him. i felt so lonely and lost. but my life did slowly get better. I now am married and have 2 beautiful boys, 3 and 4. I tell them about their big brother all the time. I tell people that it maks me feel better talking about my son because he was such a big part of my life. I still have those days where i want to stay in bed and cry and that is ok. but always try and remember the good things. I am now in the process of building a park in his name and we have a 100 foot wall for children who have died before their time. In doing this it give me something to live for along with my 2 sons. I looked for something that my son would have loved. wether it is planting a tree, making a garden, or whatever you can find. Life does get better and it is ok to feel happy and sad.

Tina I can feel your pain. My only biological child was lost to stillbirth 9 years ago. I do have an adopted daughter that is the light of my life...but I'll never have another biological child. I mourn my son and the loss of my fertility every day...even though I am so very thankful to God for giving me my daughter

My best friend lost both of her children two months ago. Her ex-husband murdered them and her mother. She knows exactly what lonely is and I'm sure you both are feeling some of the same feelings. I have lost a daughter but I still have two living children and am pregnant, so I do not understand that type of loss. But you are in the right place to share these feelings and hopefully find some relief from your grief.
