I lost my 19 year old daughter Tejaswee on 11th August 2010. Our perfect world was devastated, our lives changed completely. I realised the only thing that kept us sane through this impossible to understand or accept loss was the constant support from our friends, family and virtual friends and even from many total strangers.
Although I was grateful for all this support and I needed this support – desperately, I wanted to meet someone who would know what I was going through.
Then I met another mom who had known child loss. The first conversation was a new beginning. Being understood, for me, was a first unbelievable step towards healing.
‘In Our Hearts Forever’ – Support Group for grieving parents is for parents who feel that connecting with other parents coping with child loss might help them. If you know of someone who might want to connect with this group, please leave a comment or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
While sharing – being heard and being understood helps me and many other parents, this may or may not be what works for all the parents coping with child loss. We are individuals. There is no right way to grieve, there is no time table either.
