eLIMBO, (electronic)Loss In Multiple Birth Outreach, is a support network for parents who have lost one or more children in a multiple birth situation (e.g., twin, triplet, quadruplet, etc.). This list, founded in December 1995, offers grief support for all parents of deceased multiples from the newly bereaved to those who experienced a loss several years ago. This includes: miscarriage, stillbirth, selective reduction, loss of one or more multiples in utero, neonatal and childhood death.
Topics of the list include: general grief support, family issues, coping with those who do not understand, ways to honor our children, parenting surviving multiples and our other children, etc. The group is intended to be a safe, non-confrontational place where we can support one another as we move along this healing journey after our loss.
The name LIMBO implies what many of us feel as we experience this loss. Are we parents of Twins? Triplets? Quadruplets? etc. How do we answer the question "how many children do you have?, etc. For more information on our name and the list, please visit our website: http://www.geocities.com/Heartland/Lake/5142/index.html
