The other day a friend sent me an article about a mother who built a sandbox on her infant sons’ grave.  The sandbox is to give her living 3-year-old son a way to “play” with his baby brother.  It is a very creative idea which gives her son a way to mourn as well as bond with the brother he will never know.

My friend wrote in the email that the article made her smile.  It makes me smile too.
