One of my acquaintances lost her 6 month old daughter. It was a horrible accident.
I'll post about that later when I have my head around it more.
Today I went to buy her a sympathy card. In Hallmark.
There were THREE cards to choose from about losing a child. There were over 20 to choose from about losing a cat/dog/pet.
WHAT IS THAT??????
I am so mad I am about to call Hallmark. What kind of society do we have when there are more cards mourning the death of pets than children?
I wish it meant that parents never lost a child.
I think it's more of a comment about us- not knowing what to say. I don't know either, that's why I was trying to buy a card.
My Church group in makig a gift basket- for the parents and the siblings. I am thinking of giving some craft items for the children- and maybe a gift certificate.
But I really have no idea what to say.
