Wear Blue for Children's Grief Awareness Day

Tomorrow is Children's Grief Awareness Day, observed every year on the third Thursday in November.  The holiday season is an especially difficult time for kids who have lost a loved one.  An understanding network can make all the difference for a grieving child.So, show your support by wearing blue and visiting the Children's Grief Awareness Day Facebook page. Also, take a look at the Holding on to Hope campaign which helps kids feel less alone during their time of pain.  Mary's Place, A Center for Grieving Children and Families - profiled in this Mommy Minute report - provides a safe place in which children and teens who are grieving a death can share their experiences, make important connections, receive support and find comfort.  The non-profit organization, based in Windsor, offers programs at no cost.
