I Really DO Get It…

I write a lot about what bereaved parents (me!) wish others knew or understood about child loss and this Valley we are walking.  And I am thankful for every person outside the child loss community who chooses to read and heed what I write.

But I want to take a minute to tell those of you who are not part of this awful “club” that I get it-I really do get itwhen you need to put distance between yourself and me or other people walking a broken road.

We all love to think that life is a never-ending ascent toward bigger, better and more enjoyable moments.

Our children are born and we think only of their future, not their future deaths.

Read the rest here:  I Get It-I Really DO Get It.

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

    1. The Importance of Agency in Grief

      Sorry, this is Feb 1 post. I misunderstood your comment at first. I can’t resend through email b/c wordpress does all that automatically.

      I hope you see this. If you ever have trouble with finding a post again, you can always find them on my public Facebook page.

      Praying for you right now! ❤
