Those of us who have lost a child will talk among ourselves about how hurtful it is that our family and friends seem to abandon us after the first few weeks or months. Not only that, but many of these people also seem to expect us to snap out of our grief after a certain amount of time.
We all know what helps and what hurts, but do those around us know? How could they, if they have never experienced the suffocating darkness of the death of their own child.
In this episode, Laura pulls back the curtain and shares some of these things with anyone who wants to know.
If you are a bereaved parent, this episode will help you know that you are not alone in the thoughts and feelings you have in this area. It also gives you something to share with those around you who want or need a better understanding of what you are going through as a bereaved parent.
NOTE: Laura will be on the Wisdom app this Thursday, March 24 at 7:30PM EASTERN if you would like to join her and get in on a discussion on this topic. (Right now the Wisdom app is only available for iPhones.)
