Hello to all here. Ammy and Dolly…it’s so good to hear from you. Almost ten years since my sweet Daniel left this earth. Dolly all you said was spot  on. We keep traveling this path step by step…sometimes stopping and sometimes falling down. Sometimes going back a few steps to see something we missed along the road. I won’t lie I struggle and will forever without my son here. As my only his absence  has left an unfillable hole in our lives. But the journey has brought us new friends and experiences and a much deeper spiritual connection. Daniel continues to guide me and send me messages. And I believe for those of you new to this path that your child will help you too. Their spirits live on and in that I find my strength. Love and prayers to you all…always in my heart….and know that you’re never alone on this journey. HUGS

Hello Dolly, I have thought about you through the years and hoped that you were okay.  I don't know why this site just seemed to fizzle out unless it's because there are so many groups on Facebook.
I was blessed to see you here and have always kept the 'moms' in prayer.  It's a never ending grief but God is faithful and He does walk with us as we travel through it.
So glad to hear you are doing better.  God be with you and all of us.

I thought I sent a comment but it disappeared I think... it's been 9 years since Brandon suddenly died at age 22... I remember Ammy and Teresa and Connie K from those sad sad days... and like me I see they still come back to this page from time to time to reach out to others who have been on this long road... to all you who have just lost your child I remember the total insanity that I felt for so long .. the unbelief and the anger and the frustration.... nothing had ever prepared me for this...and it takes a very long time before all I felt was pain... like a physical lump inside radiating all through me a shocking ache.... but as hard as it is to believe this intensity shifted a tiny bit by bit over the years... and like others I have had many assurances from God that my son is alive and well with Him ... physical things  that had no explanation but that so strongly pointed to my son and things about him only God and I knew... at first I didn't dare believe they were really reassurances.. and thought I was just making them up or going crazy.... but after awhile I began to know I was being comforted by the God who loved me and Who loved my son even more than I ever could... I pray the same comfort will come to all of you who are now in the thick of the darkest days you have ever known..we will NOT be separated forever if we love God... He will bring us together in eternity FOREVER !!

Angie, I'm so sorry for your loss.  I understand your pain and my heart hears you.  I also lost a son.  It will be 12 years this coming July.  Somehow, we manage to go on but we never forget.
All the members here have been where you are.  This site use to be very active but it seems to have lost everyone with time.  I can only hope that more members will become active and join you.

For my Jacob 33 years wasn't long enough. 
9 months since I last saw your face, 9 months since I last heard your voice. 😭💔
9 months, the same amount of time I carried you inside of me. Mesmerized and delighted with how it felt when you’d move and kick and push, I’d spend hours just watching my belly. I couldn’t wait to see your face and hold you in my arms.
9 months you’ve been gone and I still find myself waiting for you to call or walk through the door and give me a hug. 😭💔
Words will never truly say how very shattered and broken I am. I miss you my beautiful boy, I miss you so damn much 😭💔

Hi Nanette... I'm sorry for your loss.... My son Niles died May 2009. We still miss him..... But I think everlasting life is the love you leave behind....and we really have a lot of love. My son was 14, with autism and a seizure issue. He would be 26 now. He was a hero in his organ donation. We met and communicate with his heart recipient. . Every Holiday and DOB and DOD or remembered. The Menards jingle is a reminder of him.... special songs.... But the memories are love. I don't think there is anything we can do to lessen the grief. Just know that many have walked in the darkest hour and can still put one foot forward.....hugs to you.

Thank you Connie.  I will treasure your words.  I will keep reading them for strength.  I just don’t know how to stop crying and what to do with the crippling loneliness.

Hello dear Nanette. I see your post. I'm so very sorry fpr your devastating loss. I lost my only child, Daniel (I see that's your grandsons name) at age 17. That was 9 years ago this past Dec.1 I havent been on this site for a few years actually and saw your post in an e-mail. This is a difficult journey. It still hurts just as much some days as the day he left but I've learned to mange the grief. There are lessons you will learn along the way that are positive if you can even imagine that. You will be more loving and compassionate. What has gotten me through is the belief that my sweet child lives on in spirit. He is free and doing amazing things we cannot comprehend. I have received many undeniable messages from him and I try to keep my heart open to them. In the end all there is, is love and that never dies. It helps to try to do for others even when you can't do for yourself. Keep moving, take walks, take each day and be gentle with yourself. Don't feel you have to explain to anyone what you are feeling or how you express it. Those who have not experienced child loss just cannot understand. Fortunately because we know the pain is too great. So there will be some who are close to you who will drift away and that is normal. Another loss that goes along with it. It's sad. But that's why we are here for each other . Your grief is so fresh and at such a difficult time of year. Payers and big hugs to you/ Connie (Daniels mom)

Does anyone out there see my post?  I am new at this and don’t know if I am proceeding correctly.  

i really need to connect with someone who has lost a child.
