Who is Andrew?
I was 12 when my 7-year-old brother, Andrew, unexpectedly passed away. My parents were trying to figure out what had just happened and how to physically live after the death of their youngest child. I didn’t know how to process all of the emotions while getting used to life without my brother. My parents received the bulk of the condolences and still do, even now.
As I've grown (and the internet became a thing), I've looked for resources to help me understand sibling loss further. I couldn't find much for sibling loss and what I did find, was written by a doctor. They hadn't lost a sibling and had no idea what this was like. No one was sharing their story of sibling grief.
I wanted to help people, just like me, begin to process all of the emotions, feel connected to others who can relate, and understand a little more of the grieving process.
