Why do we care? The pain can last a lifetime:
"Yet if I speak, my pain is not relieved; and if I refrain, it does not go away."
Job 16:6 NIV
"For I am about to fall, and my pain is ever with me."
The loss of a child or a pregnancy has an impact on parents beyond the initial days and weeks following the loss. Although all losses are painful, the unexpected nature of losing a child and all that is tied up in a family’s hopes and dreams for that child intensify the impact.
