Bode and Morgan Miller Welcome Baby Boy 4 Months After Daughter’s Drowning

The Millers are trying to change the world in their daughter’s honor by spreading the word about drowning prevention and water safety. They are also trying to help other parents who lost a child in an accident by sharing their story and helping to remove the stigma.

Bode Miller told CBS News in August that “We have people come up to us [where] it’s really hard [for them] to address [us]. They don’t know what to say, they don’t want to cause you more pain and they don’t want to dodge around the subject,” he said. “But the fact is, breaking that stigma and making it a conversation that you can have with parents who have, unfortunately, experienced it firsthand is one of those really important steps.”

“It’s an open conversation where you know that laughing and joking doesn’t mean it’s gone … it’s just part of our lives now,” Bode continued.

I cannot imagine the crazy mix of joy and grief that comes with welcoming another child after you’ve lost one. All my prayers are with the Millers at this time — prayers of thanks for this new life and prayers of continued healing as they go on without their precious daughter.
