I think most of us will agree that the first year after our child died was excrutiatingly painful and difficult to maneuver. Perhaps you are still going through those first painful months since your child died.
We have expanded the outreach of our chapter to include a support group for newly bereaved moms… those whose child died within the past year. We will meet on the third Wednesday of the month from 6:30-8:30. Txt to Lisa 916.220.7281 to confirm meeting location.
These meetings will be informal and structured in such a way as to allow those who come the opportunity to talk about their child and ask those questions that many of us asked as we embarked upon this lifelong journey as a bereaved parent.
Questions such as…
“How long will it take before I feel normal again?”
“How come I can’t think… and I’m always tired.”
“My friends don’t understand. I feel so all alone.”
“Am I going crazy?”
You’ll have the opportunity to create friendships with others who understand what you’re going through. You’ll meet other moms whose journey is similar to yours, as well as seasoned grievers who are there to help and give you hope.
This group is not meant to replace our main gathering for moms that meets the first Thursday of the month. It’s an additional opportunity for you to receive the extra support you need during this difficult time. We believe you will benefit by attending both groups.
Those who are interested should RSVP to texting to Lisa 916.220.7281 or Donna 916.521.7433,
