As a bereaved parent, we always worry about the effect that the death of a child will have on the other siblings. Sometimes, we worry that they are too affected. Sometimes we worry that they are not affected enough. Then there is the fear that they will forget their sibling. Of course, I can only imagine the concern that people have when a new child is born. The struggle knowing that this new child will never have known their brother\sister. The key is to keep your deceased child “alive” in your home. The link below is an award winning article written by the son of a friend of mine. His brother Ari passed away. If you ever had a doubt about the effect that the death of a sibling has, you will doubt no more after reading this.
It is too beautiful to describe, so you will have to read it for yourself.
