I don't know if you are a believer in Christ. I wish I had some great advice. Sorry for the loss and good luck. In , he meets a Bosnian Muslim woman in charge of the uncovering mass graves of more than 8,000 Muslim men and boys massacred days after declaring independence from Serbia. May I tell you my story sometime? We hear the car doors being slammed outside and Uncle says remember, don't tell mom he puts his finger to his lip. I say yes again and he leaves while I pretend to use the restroom.
I'm very sorry to hear about your loss. L, I'll put you in my prayers. And my finger reflecting his finger to lips notion. You have to explain it as a loss. I never had to explain it to my kids, for some reason. I am a social worker who has done some work in grief and trauma. Please let your children see how much you are grieving over the loss of a baby, and be honest with them about the death.
I think children are very loving and more understanding than we give them credit for. My kids boucned back and I dont mean this to sound cold but they just went on with life. We found out about three weeks ago we were pregnant, but then lost it today. We had a 6 adn 4 year old at the time and wanted one more. You've gotten a lot of advice already, but I would have to say use both the scientific approach and God. I was 35 when I lost both babies. I suggest you completely rely on God and He will use your children as a comfort for the whole family! He guides my hand out.
Keep the faith too-- I got pregnant again a few months later. While I think it's important to emphasize that the baby is indeed in heaven, I think a scientific answer is best for the younger children. We just told him that our baby was in heaven with Jesus and wouldn't be coming to our house anymore. Once again, I thank all of you from the bottom of my heart you truely are heaven sent. So I don't tell mommy, and days pass to months, and months pass to years until finally I don't even think about it anymore. I am a Christian mom and I would never tell my kids that God took anybody away.
Uncle Terry puts a movie in and sits next to me. Good Luck to you and your kids will probably be sad for a short period, but luckily children are very resilient!! We meet a printer of the Martyrs of Gaza; Nadim, a Christian brewer in ; Lucy, who rescues Palestinian donkeys and tries to rehabilitate them; and rappers at a Gazan bachelor party. You can take it or leave it. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers S. I will be praying all goes well.
First please let me tell you how sorry I am for your loss. I think you will be surprised at how supportive your other two children can be in helping you deal with this loss. I don't know if that would be comforting to you but it is very confusing to children. I've thought about it, but don't know much about it or anyone who does it. I'm not sure if you believe in God or not, but we explained to our then 9 yr old who has Down syndrome, so he was mentally at the time around 5-6 yrs old and 5 year old that God needed our baby to help him.
Thus, Buñuel embarked on a rather unusual effort — to talk about countries that make headlines, but instead of focusing on the same three basic stories, he extended the reach of his eye to look at a more subtle vision of these countries, full of culture, people, interests that rise high above the daily news reports. Stress that is wasn't their fault. He says, don't tell mommy what we did, but then he jiggles the door handle. Saying something like the baby died may seem really harsh but it will be very clear to your children, especially the 6 yr old. How did it make you feel? Mommy says Uncle Terry will watch me. When I had to tell my 6 year old I just explained to him that God changed his mind and decided it wasn't the right time for us and maybe someone who is not forunate enough to already have a beautiful child, received the baby instead of us. Topics include materialism, the arms trade and the vast land between Moscow and Siberia.
I know you are hurting. I would tell the kids that God makes everything and he can also take away things. Then it shows the Somaliland where Buñuel is without guards where it is totally different from the other parts of the country. Just try not to be sad around them as hard as that will be, but look at them as the beautiful gifts you already have and that should make you smile. While this festivity paints an image of happiness and unity, the portrait is not quite as picturesque in the countryside. In , he takes in a local basketball game and hits the town afterwards with an American player finding stardom in Iran. My husband and I did sit down with the children and explained to them that the baby was sick and not strong enough to grow inside mommy anymore and went to be with Jesus.
This is a hard thing you must be going through. Secrets are like treasures, hidden. Buñuel explores where past and present collide, the line between reality and science fiction is thin.

I cannot imagine the pain you are going through and the strength you need for your children.
