Everyone has a story and we want to be a place to tell yours. Please join us, even if just to listen. We are here to remember, to celebrate the life of your little one and to talk about how to reenter the world that has kept spinning even though our world is standing still. You are welcome here no matter your story.
  • Please RSVP by emailing or calling group leader, but please feel free to join any posted gathering- even if you have not RSVPed, all are welcome.

My goal for this group is to be a safe place for people who have experienced this type of loss with support of people who know what you are going through. While the loss of a child is never something you get over, I hope that our group can be there for you to make it through the rough days and hopefully be part of your good days as well.

The loss of a child is something you never get over, but my hope is that our support group will help you get through the loss of your child, by leaning on others who have experienced a similar loss. Together we can help each other through the rough times, celebrate the good times, and honor the memories of our children by helping each other.
