This issue of Connections focuses on the changing nature of grief in time. First, we present the parent talk from the 16th annual LPCH Day of Remembrance & Rededication ceremony by a young couple sharing their journey with grief over the past five years. You’ll also find an article written by a grieving mother reflecting on how her grief has evolved over the past fifteen years. Finally, we’ve included links to helpful child grief resources in honor of Children’s Grief Awareness Day to help readers understand loss from a child’s perspective- and how that perspective changes as children grow.
