Lose a Child


I have twins aged 2 years old. I read an article on the internet about the murder of a 2 year old little girl, her parents killed her. every time I read stories like this, I cry and pray to god that no harm ever reaches my children. After reading the article I thought losing a child must be the worst possible thing to happen to anyone in this life and that's how I ended up on this websites article. To all the parents who have lost your dear little angels, I can't begin to imagine the pain you have endured. Unspeakable, unforgiving pain. For a human to go through that much pain I know there has to be justice. Can life really be that unfair? I hope and pray and truly believe that all those amazing strong parents will be reunited with their angels once this life is over. This life is so hard, harder for others and hardest for the strongest souls.

People have no clue what it's like to lose a child. You expect to lose your parent... You should outlive them... That's the way of life. We lost our son 20 yrs ago to a drunk driver on our 28th wedding anniversary. I still have times that I just can't handle it. One learns to live with it. One doesn't have a choice. These other
Suggestions are unbelievable. Be real. I guess these people have no faith or no religion to fear hell. fear of jail, come on, if you broke the law & did wrong, pay the time. If you
Killed someone, be for real, what do you expect... Think of the family of the person you killed... This site is not for real. Do some research. The biggest stressor in life are those you lost a child. I think the only thing worse than losing a childid to lose 2 children or more. Think of WW2 & all the children killed by the Germans.. Not even thinking of the adults. Those people who have made the other suggestions have never had a child & if you do think of whick one you'd like ...more

By far the most devastating thing that can happen to someone who is a parent. Certainly is #1 to anyone who is a parent. A child gives you purpose, meaning and accomplishment. If anyone ever wants to experience unconditional love, have a child. No stronger love or bond than that. When you lose a child, your identity, purpose and life meaning are destroyed forever. It crushes your soul, and although the pain softens over time, it never goes away. It's with you for the rest of your life.

Losing a child is the worst thing ever. I lost my daughter and my heart was broken in a way not to many people will ever know. It is a steady and constant pain that a large piece of you is missing. I gave birth to an angel.

Yeah, I'll admit, this is one of the worst things that could possibly happen. Yeah, a child may lose a parent, and though they would suffer, they will get over it because that is the way of nature. But a parent losing a child... As a quote from the lord of the rings, "A parent should never have to bury their child."

Wives who lose a husband are called widows. Kids who lose their parents are called orphans. However, there's no word that can describe a parent losing a child, as it is too emotional to even begin to explain. - ethanmeinster

"No parent should have to bury their child." It's the worst feeling in the world, to see a fragile thing that you created, that you had the chance to give so much love to, or even already have given so much love to, simply being lowered into the ground, never to be seen again.

When you lose your parent, you lose your past. When you lose your husband/wife, you lose your present. When you lose your child, you lose your future. But when you lose your sibling, you lose your past, present and future.

I am so incredibly sorry for anyone who has ever lost a child. I can not imagine the grief that that would cause. Losing a child to me seems like by far the worst thing that could happen to anyone. - pandagirl

This is far worse than the first 3.No I haven't been buried alive, and no I haven't been to hell..But id have given my life for my daughter, and if I had to be buried alive to do it. And I'd spend the rest of

The accidental loss of an 8 month old baby is the worst thing I have ever gone through, All my hopes and dreams crushed in a split second and nothing left to look forward to...Emptiness...

Yep this is it I lost my 20 year old son in a car wreck march 1,2008. My world stopped. I had 2 other sons 6 and 15 had to go on. A part of you dies I slept like 16 hours a day. I know death is not the end cus his sweet spirit stayed with me and I have faith in Jesus and know we will be together again but I miss my beautiful boy Brian Lynn Walden every single day.Lost my mother at 13 and my dad at 27 but losing a child is the worst thing a parent can experience life goes on but a hole forever

If you don't have kids yet, you will realize (whether you know now or not) that if that child dies, it will be an eternal depression, unlike "hell". - gimi8609

If you don't take care of your child social services can take them away from you. - Jordansalesguy2392

I'm only a Teen, I don't plan on having kids any time soon, but when I'm older and have kids, I will always protect my child! Even if it means just checking under their beds at night or staying with them 'till they fall asleep. I won't let them go to crazy late night parties until they are responsible adults, and I will ALWAYS stay by their side no matter what! (Gay, Lesbian, Transgender, etc.) Because a child is a very important gift and everyone who has a child should treasure it. ~ Teenage Girl, Yeah that's right!

You can only understand the desperation and pain of losing your child if you've been there. Anyone on here saying that anything else is worse simply doesn't understand what this does to you as a dad and a man.
There is no worse thing in life I can tell you

Yea losin a child should be under your top three especially if he's a teenager or like an eight year old cause he or she was barely learning or experiencing life you know.

I've never been through anything like this but realize that the child never even had the chance to live out their life. To me that's the saddest thing possible

It is the hardest thing I have ever seen as a counselor. Probably because it is not only sad but it violates the natural order.

Sigh... All this religous stuff like "Hell" I always wonder... Why do people believe in that? Who knows if it's real? If it is then what proof do the people have that it is real.. Hell shouldn't be on this list, this lit is called worst things to happen to you in life, well don't people say Hell is in the "afterlife"?

Losing a child is the worst thing that can happen to a person period. There is no worse pain in the world.

I don't have any children, and I can only imagine the horror that is burying your little baby.

My brother died and my dad and I or in bits I'm 7 and my brother was 21

Losing wife and kids! I feel you and I'm 13

Hands down has to be the worst thing ever. I would rather die than lose my child.
