This was a very moving poem read by Alison Rogerson, Community Midwife and Dumfries and Galloway SANDS committee member at our 2010 Christmas Service

 

A Little Snowdrop – Author Unknown

The world may never notice
If a Snowdrop doesn’t bloom,
Or even pause to wonder
If the petals fall too soon.

 

But every life that ever forms,
Or ever comes to be,
Touches the world in some small way
For all eternity.

 

The little one we longed for
Was swiftly here and gone.
But the love that was then planted
Is a light that still shines on.

 

And though our arms are empty,
Our hearts know what to do.
For every beating of our hearts
Says that we love you.

Next Support Meeting

The next support group meeting is planned for the 29th November 2017 at 7.30pm and we welcome anyone touched by the death of a baby to join us.

The meeting will be held at our office at 107 Irish Street Dumfries.

Many people feel that only others who have experienced the death of a baby can offer real understanding of the pain and heartbreak that they are feeling and the support group meetings allow you to connect with other bereaved parents, grandparents and others who share your pain and loss.

The support group is an informal setting and is only attended by people who themselves have lost a baby or their families. You will not be pressured to speak and sometimes it’s nice just to simply come along and listen.

If anyone would like more information about these meetings or would like to express an interest in attending then please email contact@dg-sands.org
