Helping Parents Heal – a safe place for bereaved parents and their families
Our Mission: Helping Parents Heal is a non-profit organization dedicated to assisting parents who have lost children, giving them support and resources to aid in the healing process. We go a step beyond other groups by allowing the open discussion of spiritual experiences and evidence for the afterlife, in a non-dogmatic way. Affiliate groups are expected to welcome everyone regardless of religious (or non-religious) background and allow for open dialog.
For grieving parents and siblings: Please know that you’re not on this road alone. We have also walked this path and share an understanding of the pain you are facing. We are here to help. People may sometimes shun you because they don’t know what to say. Others may not mention your child’s name, fearing it will upset you when it would actually bring you some joy to hear them say that name. Still others may care and have good intentions, but say the wrong thing because they’re not sure what to communicate. Some people may even be so harsh as to ask, “isn’t it time you were over this?” All these things come from ignorance, for only those who have walked in our shoes can truly understand what it feels like to lose a child. We have found a way to heal and move forward in a positive manner. Once again, we’re able to experience joy in our lives and are pleased to share our healing path with you.
