Coping Minds

Read Other Stories: Please read these stories from other parents, families and friends who have suffered and are surviving the physical loss of their beloved child. This community of fellow bereaved parents, family and peers will touch your heart and remind you that you are not alone. You will survive this journey… one step at a time. Others are on this path… just a few steps ahead or behind you.

Share Your Story: Tell us about this amazing child. Is he or she your son or daughter? Do you have a classmate that you are missing? Do you know a family that needs support? Share them with us. Also, share any questions or concerns that you might have about day to day survival, surviving the holidays, etc. We will try to assist you.

However, please remember that we are fellow bereaved parents and families. We are not professional grief therapists or counselors. We will gladly share our own experiences and what worked or didn’t work for us. However, professional advice and support is always available (see Support Advice).There is no shame in asking for professional help. You have suffered a devastating, life-altering loss. Recognizing that is the first step to survival.
