The term “shadow children” is largely unknown in our society. These are children who live with a terminally ill sibling. All the parents attention belongs to the sick child. The healthy children are in the “shadow”, take on tasks for which they are still far too young and fill all the family gaps that open up due to the overload of their parents. Often enough it is the days in the hospice that the healthy children long for, as they are relieved of all burdens in this place for a few hours.
