Repost: Bill of Rights for Grieving Parents

I don’t mean to be pushy.

But there are some things I really wish other people understood about grief:

  • It doesn’t have a time limit.
  • It doesn’t conform to my expectations or the expectations of others.
  • I can’t predict when it will overwhelm me.
  • I am not going to apologize for grieving my son because I don’t apologize for loving him.

So, please, consider this Bill of Rights for Grieving Mamas.

This is a record of my grief journey and a look into the life I didn't choose.
