When we lost Poppy her siblings were only 9, 7 and 4. One of the hardest things I have ever done is tell my children that their baby sister had died. Dealing with their grief alongside my own has been incredibly hard. But my children amaze me each and every day. They have more love, compassion and understanding about baby loss than many adults. They have a love so fierce for their sister that they include her in everything and her name is said each and every day. I have put together words to express the love and grief of an angel sibling from the experiences of my own children.
In December 2019 we welcomed Poppy’s baby brother into the world. He will know everything about his big sister and will always know he has his very own guardian angel.
On this page you will find words of love and support for angel siblings x
