In your Face

Contributor: BRANDY JEAN 

The 15th celebrates yet another milestone.     At 1:30 am in the morning he ages yet another month…. In heaven.   Since Josephs passing my husband and I have chosen to speak out about infant death.   Child loss is such a devastation… 

We didn’t want to watch the time pass reminding ourselves of his death.  Instead we chose to honor our son’s life.  He lived 37 hours… In that time he changed the life of thousands.   There are many things we do.  There are many places we go but most of all…  We stay in the light.   Choosing positive things to say including in our own hearts makes this process long… but precious.  

We created a Face Book site dedicated to our son.  In Memory of Joseph Henry Jean.  
This is our way of saying..  In your face.  We want people to visit him there.  To leave thoughts..  To continue to do good things in his name.  We have discussions about what happened.  We tell the story … True.   He is an amazing child.   He is bridging the worlds between life and loss together.  

Joseph’s gift to this world is knowing.   Sharing and being a part of something bigger than he.   I choose to grieve in the light…  to honor my talk about him out loud even if it is uncomfortable for those around us. 

 I am not ashamed.  I am proud.  I am a mother to a son in heaven and I want the world to know.

Dear Brandy, You and your husband are being a light for so many other parents who have children in heaven. It is definitely not the natural order of things. You are indeed very brave. You are an inspiration. From so much pain, you are giving such a gift to others who have had the same experience. Take care. I'm sending you 5 kisses Joseph. Your work continues among the angels.

It is good what you do in talking about it. So many don't feel they have the right to.

My condolences to you.

Thank you for sharing this with us Brandy. I am with you, I want the world to know. Why shouldn't we show pride in our little ones. They are OUR children, and still beautiful blessings to this world, even in their absence.
