The loss of a child is difficult to comprehend even as an adult; helping a child to process sibling loss is even more complicated. As a parent there is a natural desire for all of our children to be acknowledged, especially within the family. Still Family dedicates itself to providing opportunities for siblings to connect with peers through social and volunteer events. As an outreach, Still Family provides comforting keepsake items to siblings of those that have experienced pregnancy or infant loss.
In addition to siblings, all members of a family including mothers, fathers, siblings, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends are supported in their own grief journey. We need to support each other as we’re all Still Family.

Still Family delivers Sibling Bags to local Pittsburgh hospitals where they are given to families experiencing a pregnancy or infant loss. Each Sibling Bag contains: a teddy bear with a hat, a blanket, and the book “We were gonna have a baby, but we had an angel instead."

Enjoy the memory of your baby that passed away through the love and kindness of your living children. Included below are ideas on how to help a child remember their sibling:
