Do you want to know one of the most repeated questions in grief support groups?
It is, “Am I normal?”

in the middle of reconstructing a life that includes a giant hole,
while struggling to place one foot in front of the other,
parents who have buried a child are often worried about whether what they feel and how they act is “normal”.
