It's every parent's worst nightmare. Yet, it became our reality in 2015 when my 7-year old son unexpectedly left this world.
Life after loss feels a lot like I'm just playing house. Going through the motions. Trying to recreate the life I loved, that can never again be.
A part of me died that day.
You never get over the loss of a child. Grief becomes a way of life. Yet, there is a stigma to it.
I want to be part of the movement to change that. Helps increase the resources available to other bereaved parents. Lets the world know my child existed and it's normal to talk about.
This is why I share my grief journey...
