Speaking about the death of a child is taboo, especially a newborn. After all, babies are not supposed to die. But the reality is that they sometimes do. In "Balloons on the Mailbox," Chantal D. Hrup recounts the death of her beloved newborn baby girl.
The Hrup family struggled to find normalcy in their lives again, but rising above a misfortune of this magnitude is not easy-especially when friends and family members don't know what to say, or whether to say anything at all. Unable to cope, Chantal went into shock and remained secluded in her home until the day of the funeral, all the while yearning to connect with another mother who had experienced such a terrible loss.
While heartbreaking, "Balloons on the Mailbox" will help you better understand your role as a friend, family member, or co-worker of someone who has experienced such a massive loss. Discover how you can make a difference in people's lives and aid them in their journey toward recovery.
