Let us know, too, how you observe or survive these anniversaries and birthdays. Everyone has their own way of working through it. Perhaps you can help someone else by sharing yours.
General comments are welcome in the comment section below this article, but our group is the best place for support and understanding from other moms who know what you’re going through.
