Toby is asleep in the car, I took a look at Facebook and this video popped up in my newsfeed. I don’t usually watch videos as they take too long and don’t engage me or I just can’t be bothered! As Toby was asleep I figured I had 11 minutes to spare.
The mums and dads in the film have spoken everything I have ever thought about Rory and our lives since he died. I realised the other day that you go through life finding your ‘tribe’ of friends who look out for you and know where you are coming from. I didn’t expect to end up in the ‘parents of dead babies’ tribe and I wish I wasn’t a lifelong member but I am. I don’t know the people who are in the video but I know their experiences and I know how they feel. They are my tribe along with all the other bereaved parents out there; I love them and their Angel babies so much.
The one good, most amazing thing which has come out of Rory’s life and death is raging, overflowing, beautiful love. When you watch the parents in the video that is the type of love you see in their eyes and hear in their voices. The love that comes after the loss of a child has to be the most powerful thing in the universe!
I’m proud to be part of the parents of dead babies tribe.
Here’s the link to the video I saw on the Finley’s Footprints FB page, enjoy 🙂 Finley’s Footprints
