Is there an online support group for survivors of the loss of an only child which meets on a weekly or monthly basis? My Aunt and Uncle have lost their only child - a 19 year-old son - and they are in such pain... we need help

I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your precious son. Why do bad things happen to good people? We may never find the answers.......please know that you are not alone.

I lost my 32 yr old son, my only child, on July 10 2019. He was killed in a motorcycle accident. My heart is shattered and my life will never be the same. This is life's most cruel event.

Dear Stacy,

I lost my only child, a son, two years ago this October to a heart aneurysm. At times the grief still hits me hard but I find I am growing more accepting of the loss and can live with it.  Your grief never goes, away but it gets easier to bear.  I will be thinking of you.

Hi Stacey - I'm so sorry to hear about the tragic loss of your precious daughter. I am now going into my 3rd year without my only child Michael. Though the grief never goes away, it does shift and you are able to good days. Please stay connected and know that you are not alone on this journey

Hi Stacey,

My condolences and deepest sympathy to you.  I'm so sorry for your loss.  My son passed away 27 months ago in a car accident, I know the pain, sorrow and anger you are experiencing.

Hello Stacey

I am so so sorry to have to welcome you to this group. I know the devastation and gut wrenching sorrow you are going through right now. I wish I could tell you it gets better. But it doesn't - you just learn ways to manage the grief and carry on somehow to make your child proud. The pain will subside with time as your mind lets the reality in you will deal with it a little at a time. I believe our spirits never die and that we will be together again. That is how I get by. I lost my son Daniel in a tragic car accident almost 4 years ago. He was 17. I want my son back every second of every day. My life is shattered. I can only send you lots of love and prayers and hope you can find some hope and support here. We are the only ones who knows ow it feels and are always here to listen.

Moving Through the Seven Stages of Grief

When a heart breaks, you’re left gasping for air. After a while you seem fine, yet fall apart unexpectedly at random moments, sanity seemingly forsaken. There’s a saying that when a heart breaks, it cracks to allow golden love to shine through onto others. Do you see the value in going through this?It may not feel like it now, but grief is an honor. It is an honor to feel that much, to have loved that much. It teaches you compassion, gratitude, resilience, and the importance of grabbing life by…See More
