I am a married, working mom of two young boys. My older son T is nearly 6 years old, and my dear son B passed away at the young age of 16 months. My husband and I have had each other for support, as well as many dear friends and family. Unfortunately, children cannot comprehend loss. So, when I searched for support for my son, I was left with few resources. I knew that if I felt lost and alone with my son, then others must feel the same. My goal is to share our journey with others, so that they may gather ideas to help their young ones deal with grief and loss too. I will be posting activities we conduct with our son to help him work through his emotions. As a last note, I keep personal pictures and actual names private, in respect of my family.
This is a journey we do not choose; however, it is a journey we must accept.
