A whole new set of emotions!
Its been a long time since I posted on this board, but some may remember me posting of my 2 1/2 year old son Izaiah who passed away of pulmonary artery hypertension. I was also pregnant at the same time of his passing. My daughter is now 4 years old and talks about him all the time. I don't really speak about him a lot to her, but she sees pictures and she knows he's her brother. Its amazing the bond they have and have never met. She tells other kids that she has a big brother and they all tell her no she doesn't, because they have never seen him. In my heart I feel deep pain when I hear them say that because he's very much real to me. Sometimes I even wonder if he visits her in her dreams the love in her eyes is sooo real when she speaks about him. I guess I never really imagined the day that I would really have to face the issue of other kids talking about it and her questioning it. The other day she asked me where Zai Zai was, and I told her "you know he's with Jesus" and she said "Yeeeeah, I know that.. but when does he come home from Jesus?" I try to tell her he's forever her guardian angel. I would give anything for them to play with each other if only for one day.

Re: A whole new set of emotions!
You have a grief that I can't understand and few can. To have the joy of having your child and then the inexpressible grief of having them torn away. I have no words, there are no words, that can take away that sadness for you. I'm so terribly sorry for your loss.

I think you are doing a wonderful job, though, of keeping your child's memory alive for your other child, regardless of what other children say or do. Do not worry what they will say to her, it is in yours and her heart that is important.
