12 Daily Reminders for the Grieving Parent

1.  Honor your grief today.  Others may minimize it or want you to have a different feeling.  Don’t look to others to understand it.  Only you know the magnitude of your loss.
2.  Not even death can end our love. I will talk to you today from my heart.
3.  I am sad. That is what grief feels like sometimes. Let me have my own experience of it. I recognize sadness as a part of healing.
4.  Meaning in this loss may come in time, it can’t be rushed or found for me. Healing takes time. Today, I look forward to finding peace.
5.  Loss can also be a period of growth. Today be open to awareness of new growth and changes.  
6.  When your child died, a part of you died with them. And a part of them lives on in you.
7.  As you experience the sadness of the loss, find gratitude for the love you shared and the experiences you had. I remember you today with love and gratitude.
8.  Pain is inevitable in grief, suffering is optional. Help my mind to be kind to me today. I will not punish myself for anythin…

t-shirt Fundraiser

“There’s more to my story.”
When Kaysen passed away, I truly thought that the best days of my life were over. How could I live a full and happy life, without my son? God revealed to me that although my relationship with Kaysen was different than I expected, he is very much a part of my life. My story isn’t over. There is more to my story.
Every one of us has a story! We believe that this shirt sends a message of hope to people in all walks of life, no matter what your story is.
We hope that you will consider supporting Kindness for Kaysen foundation in this way and help us spread hope to everyone around us!
The deadline for this fundraiser is March 15, 2020.

Kindness for Kaysen

In the beginning, Kindness for Kaysen started with doing random acts of kindness to carry on Kaysen’s name and to honor his life; to make a difference in this world for him. Since then we have grown so much and are honored to be able to serve those who are living through the loss of a child. This month we want to give back a little to those who care in the earliest hours of heartbreak and pain. 
This is what Kaysen’s mom wrote a few years back about the nurses who cared for her when Kaysen was stillborn … “You held me in my darkest, weakest moments. You took care of me when my world was crashing down around me. You showed me love and compassion, without expecting anything in return. You cried with me and for me. To all the nurses who choose to be a part of such an intimate time in the lives of others, thank you. We see you, we remember you, and we appreciate you more than you will ever know.”
Kaysen’s family invite you to join them this month in putting together ‘goodie baskets’ that wi…

This year, we are also offering a children’s group play-therapy, for children aged 4-8 who have experienced the loss of a sibling.

“Wave of Light” Benefit Dinner

Please join us for our “Wave of Light” Benefit Dinner.  This will be an intimate and meaningful event  where we will honor the babies and children that were taken too soon.
