The death of a child, of any age, brings heartbreak and personal devastation. It might cause a life trauma. Grief is not a problem to be cured by medicine. It is an experience to be supported, witnessed and shared. 

The project was created to support the bereaved parents on their long journey and with the author’s need to open a discussion about a social taboo topic. Parents find themselves easily in feelings of uprooting and loneliness. Others look nervously at the bereaved woman-mother or man-father, only deepening the gap between them and the society.
