After publishing the last post, there has been interest on some private grief support sites to create our own version of the #metoo hashtag sweeping social media.  

We tend to talk among ourselves, lamenting the lack of understanding that losing a child changes everything.

So here it is, folks.  Our opportunity to stand and be counted.  Our chance to have our voices heard.

Let’s speak up.  

Let’s refuse to be shamed into silence.

I am a shepherd, wife and mother of four amazing children, three that walk the earth with me and one who lives with Jesus. This is a record of my grief journey and a look into the life I didn't choose. If you are interested in joining a community of bereaved parents leaning on the promises of God in Christ, please like the public Facebook page, "Heartache and Hope: Life After Losing a Child" and join the conversation.

One thought on “#Iknow”

  1. I love this idea and will absolutely do it and I agree with the fact that we need to be heard our children cannot be forgotten and we as the angel moms and dads must learn how to live on if only to honor their memory that is why I am doing a documentary on the grief of losing a child what happens to the parents afterwards how do we survive? How do people relate to us? It’s called black hole of the Soul the movie page is here on Facebook I would be honored if you took a look at it and gave it a like shared it with anyone you think it might help we are all on this journey none of us not one of us wanted to be here but we are here and I’m going to make it a blessing for someone that’s what my daughter wanted and that’s the promise I’m going to keep her may God bless us all and all of our children
