This second episode of the Helping Your Child Leave a Legacy series is with guest, Crystal Webster, who lost her one and only child eight hours after birth. Several years later, after coming out of the debilitating darkness of grief, she discovered something she could do that would help others who found themselves in that same place, be able to “pay it forward” when they came out of their own dark place of grief.
During our conversation, we also covered a few other topics within the world of grief.
Crystal’s suggestion to helping your child leave a legacy: Find something (and it doesn’t have to be big) that brings others happiness and yourself happiness.
Crystal Webster’s daughter, Madelyn Elizabeth, died just 8 short hours after birth while in her mother’s arms. As Crystal grieved the loss of her only child, she began to feel isolated and ill-equipped to handle her emotional journey. Vowing to honor her daughter’s brief life and to support others from feeling as lost and lonely as she did, Sharing Solace was founded, which brings together those grieving any type of loss by providing physical keepsake gifts intended to be ‘paid forward’ to others.
