ART PRINT - A CHILD'S SONG
The death of a child is devastating, leaving parents shattered and shaken to the core. Everything changes, every aspect of life is impacted, and, while life can be beautiful again, there's no one thing that can fix the unfixable.
Gentleness helps. Searching for healing helps. Leaning into love can be a lifeline. The kindness of others certainly helps us - thoughtful notes, meaningful gifts, words of remembrance have mattered so much. We know family and friends often don't know what "to do" so we wanted to offer some gentle ways to help tap into that love lifeline. We wanted to find a way to offer tenderness to all those many other parents who are so deeply hurting.
These words were given to us by another SMA loss mom. They came with no expectation, no clichés, no demands to be better. They came only with love and a reminder of the deep connection we will always have with our incredible child. I have spent many a day running my fingers over these words, soaking them in, clinging to a tangible when the emptiness feels so vast.
We had these anonymous words turned into a fine art letterpress print. Print is 8-1/2”x11” (designed to fit an 8”x10” mat or frame) with ocean blue lettering. The paper type is a thick (110 lb./300gsm), 100% cotton paper with a luxurious texture that was created especially for letterpress imprint. Each print comes unmatted and unframed so you can make it more personal.
