Grief / Depression

I just read a post from a parent of a baby who is currently fighting I.S.  Her daughter is not getting better.  She mentioned praying that God could take her house, her car, ANYTHING, if He would just heal her daughter.

I think all of us have been there at some point or another, whether you have had a sick child or not.  But, I thought I would share this link to the stages of grief.  Once I saw it, it gave me a little perspective that I am not alone in feeling this way, and it let me know other stages to expect.  Sometimes, during a stage, I didn’t recognize it, but looking back, I can remember them all.

It took me a long time to work through all of the stages, and even still, sometimes I regress.   I’m sure it is even more difficult for those who’s child never recovers.  But, you WILL get through this.
