How to reach out:
I know how you feel.
You need to get over this.
It's time to let go and move on.
You need to find a hobby.
Shouldn't you be over your crying now?
At least you have other children!
He/She is in a better place.
He/She only lived two years, my son/daughter lived 22. I lost more.
If it were my child I would no longer be on this earth.
But he/she is finally really happy!
He/She was an Angel on Earth - not meant to be here.
He/She wouldn't want you to cry.
Time will heal.
This is killing you.
How did you live through this?
I don't know how you carry on, I know if it was me that I couldn't. At least your child lived one-fourth of his/her life.
It was God's will. (God does not close a door without opening a window)
You're a strong person, God knew you'd be able to carry this burden.
I won't ask/can't talk about your son/daughter. It makes me depressed.
I don't want to hear about your son/daughter or about his/her grave. I want to hear about you. How are you?
When will you try again? Have you considered adoption?
