I’m very sorry to hear of your recent loss, and my heart goes out to you and to all who loved Bella. May I encourage you to call Focus on the Family? Their pastoral counselors are available at 1800-A-FAMILY. I have spoken with one and they are great. I’m sure they’ll be helpful for your situation, too. I pray that God’s tender love will sustain you during this difficult time.

Oh,my, I have never heard of such heartbreak. I don't know what to say. May mothers everywhere take heed to your story about how a tv can fall on a child or how a chest of drawers can fall on a child. You need a miracle for your brain and mind and heart and soul. This is too much for any human to endure.

Kimberley, I honestly can't say I know what you are going through, because I don't. But I am so sorry for your loss and can see you need support to help you through this. Have you sought grief counselling?
