When I was creating this companion website to my book, My Sibling Still, it was my desire to make a space that children who have suffered the loss of a sibling to miscarriage, stillbirth, or infant death could connect to and find helpful in their grieving process. One of the ideas that came to me at that time was making a worksheet to help children express their feelings about the loss of their sibling. Interested in printing a copy? Click the link below:
The worksheet has elements of a coloring page, with peaceful images of a sky in daytime and also at night. The prompts also help a child, especially one who may have had trouble verbalizing their feelings, to write out various aspects of their experience.
The worksheet ends with a prompt to draw your "sibling still." If you and your child would like to share that picture with everyone on this website and even on my Instagram @mysiblingstillbook, then email the image to mlacourrege1 (at) gmail (dot) com. I would love to see your creations!
I hope that this worksheet is a resource that your family finds helpful!
