Top Five Reasons You Absolutely Should Attend the Empty Cradle Walk to Remember

When I was invited to attend the Empty Cradle Walk to Remember way back in 2011, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I was nervous and unsure if I should take my friend’s advice and go. I hadn’t talked about what happened to my son with anyone and I didn’t think anyone else could understand my grief. My husband didn’t feel ready, so I decided to go by myself. I wondered silently, would I feel uncomfortable? Would I know what to do or say to others? What if I cried the entire time?
I left the event feeling tired, but a little lighter than when I arrived, as if the weight of my grief lifted ever so slightly. Each year is a unique experience that brings me more healing, now that I share the event with my rainbow baby. Below are the Top Five Reasons You Absolutely Should Attend.
