Let's get this out of the way.

No, I'm not pregnant. (insert "haha" here.)

But I did just finish reading an article on CNN Health about families who conceive once again after the loss of a child.

You can read that article here.

Before I even shed light on this issue, I'd like our readers to read it first and comment on what they think of this psychology term coined "replacement child."

Do you think most parents who have just lost a child attempt to replace the lost child or are they just trying to move on with their life and continue adding to their family, not forgetting the child that was lost?

It's an interesting topic that I encourage our posters to discuss on this blog.

Also, if you happen to think parents are replacing their child, is that a good or bad thing?

This is not for an article, this is merely for my blog. I may one day take a different angle or approach to this topic though.
