Guest post by Sands Queensland volunteer Lyndell Price, whose daughter Charlotte was stillborn.

I volunteer with Sands Queensland because I love my daughter. The love I have for her had nowhere to go, no baby to care for, no parties to plan, no cute outfits to wear. So for me, I pour that love into making a commitment to something that I know, first hand that makes a difference to parents whose child has died.

From the very beginning I needed to do something practical, so I made the commitment to come into the main office and help one day a week. That day gave me something to look forward to and an opportunity to step out of the house and focus on something other than the pain I was feeling. What I also found was it gave me the opportunity to meet other parents, to talk about my experience, listen to others and know that the grief I was feeling was completely normal. Grief comes from love, and I loved my daughter Charlotte very much. It was ok to keep on loving her.

I have been volunteering at Sands Queensland for just over 3 years now. In that time I have met many wonderful people and made life long friends. Through the support I have received, lesson I have learned from them and watching the amazing way their love for their baby drives them to give back I have grown as a person and found something for the first time in my life that I am truly passionate about.  It is an organisation and a family I am proud to be part of. I love Sands Queensland because it is a place I can love my daughter and use that love to help other parents.

What do you love about Sands Queensland?
