It may be hard for you to feel hopeful about the future right now. If you’ve had to face losing your child, you’ve probably found there are not many people who understand the deep hurt you feel and the impact that loss has on your life going forward. It doesn’t even seem as though life should go on as it did before. Nothing is the same.
This can be a confusing time when you feel isolated and have many questions about things you’ve never faced before. It is exhausting.
When losing a child, our own child, no matter the age or circumstance, our whole world crumbles and the very ground we stand on feels shaky. Nothing in life prepares us for the loss of a child – there is no class or life experience that could help with the pain we feel inside. I know that I don’t have to tell you how shattering and uncertain life becomes when we experience the death of our child.
Now I feel most alive with those that have also experienced that loss. I know that none of us wanted to be a part of this group of parents and grandparents = but it is the only place that we can feel understood, accepted, and comforted by what has changed the course of our lives forever.
You will find encouragement and help at just the point you are in your grief at this very moment – no matter where you begin.
This site is dedicated in honor of my son Patrick and is for parents grieving the death of your beloved child, grandparents that have lost a grandchild, and the siblings that miss them too!
In some way, I hope you find comfort and heal a bit from the pain as you are on your own unique journey through grief.
