The Loss of a Non-Human Child — The Legitimacy of a Mother’s Grief
Carole Raphaelle Davis

Such a great article Carole! AGREE 110%…you are a great MOM & of course you are beyond devastated. I am soooo sad & so sorry for your loss…I hope that you can find another beautiful boy or girl to mother & love. (it doesn’t fill that hole but it does help a LOT) When my Mom died I was deep in grief & within months became pregnant with my younger daughter which was really unbelievable at my age…she was then born on her next birthday…Also when my last rescued parrotlet was found dead & I was beyond devastated & hysterical crying we took some time then decided on another little parrot…it has helped a LOT & filled me with much joy.
