Meet my brothers Shawn and Daniel. They both died tragically, one in 2006 and the other in 2020. Like many people in our country they both battled mental health. I included them in my book because their lives mattered and they will never be forgotten.
My siblings and I survived a traumatic childhood but both of my brothers died trying to overcome the grief of generational torment. Suicide took them but I will never let them go or be forgotten.
One way to connect to our babies is by spending time with them. Taking them to the zoo is always a fun way to connect and bond! I placed the elephant behind my brothers because it symbolizes “the elephant never forgets”. I too will never forget them or all that they fought to overcome. As you connect to your babies my prayer is that you find ways to help them heal from any pain that comes their way big or small. Help them see that they matter just as my brothers lives matter.
