"SA helped keep me from drowning in my sea of grief."
"You made me feel normal in my grief, and you helped me see that eventually life would once again, be worth living. I just wanted you to know that I hold you in the highest esteem. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for all you do." 12/2004
Leah, A SA Parent & Volunteer in 2005-14, In loving memory of Cole and in honor of Katie (03) and Alex (07).

Understanding the Pregnancy & Newborn Loss Community & SHARE Atlanta...
Special Needs & Coping...
Specific Types of Losses...Multiples (twins, triplets), Preterm Diagnosis of fatal/short life expectancy, SIDS, etc.
NTLMDTS is a nationally organized group of volunteer photographers who come to your hospital room and lovingly and gently take pictures soon after our babies are born. Many hospitals know about NILMDTS, so ask. If you know that your baby has died or has had a Preterm Diagnosis of a fatal/short life expectancy, you may call them and arrange for them to come to your hospital room. SA parents who have been blessed to have them have some of the most tender and loving pictures I have ever seen. And, the experience has been one of many blessings. (Marcia)

Join with a positive group of healing parents that began online in 1997...
SHARE Atlanta (SA) was one of the first sites to have interactive email exchange..long before forums and blogs. What parents were saying and experiencing then is much like it is today. Though, there is an increase in medical and emotional support because of advocacy and awareness programs. Reading through others' stories can help you understand that others have "been there" and survived. Healing does happen.
Please take your time. Our needs change as we move t-h-r-o-u-g-h the process of grief in order to heal. As bereaved parents, ourselves, we understand the need to slowly work through your grief.
Parents helping parents to heal....
We offer this site, forums, our groups, and materials to help you as you heal. We have found that giving back to our community in memory of our babies is healing and a wonderfully, positive way to remember these special children.
Parent Support for Healing
Please seek professional and/or medical help for more support in any way. This site is not a substitute for professional guidance.
