Miracles and Memories Family-Building Pins

A guide to help you cope with the emotional aspects of pregnancy loss. This was given to INCIID in 1995 by a nurse who experienced the loss of a full-term baby just after she was born. Although it is an older article, the sentiments are timeless and comforting in the knowledge you are not alone.Please give this to anyone you know who has lost a pregnancy. This article is also excellent information for friends, families and loved ones of close to anyone who has lost a baby to miscarriage, stillbirth, or just after birth. The more people who understand what to say or more importantly what not to say, the better off those who have lost a child will be.

Dealing with the Stress of the Holidays

For most of my life Father's Day was only about my dad, and whether or not I'd remember to call him on "his day" or whether I'd just mow the lawn in homage to him instead. In my lifetime I've had only one friend who'd said that he'd always dreamed of being a dad. But he seems to be the exception in our crowd, not the rule. I know Father's Day certainly never meant as much to me as Mother's Day meant to my wife.
