When our child leaves this earth, we feel so very lost in our identity. Who am I now? Does it even matter? How can I go on? Do I even want to?
So much of our identity is wrapped up in being a parent, but we are still so much more than being a parent, even if it doesn’t seem like it. In today’s episode, Laura reminds us of this, along with helping us discover a key to who we can be, as we continue our time here on earth without our child.
Note: Today’s episode is being sponsored by Duane & Sylvia Goertzen in memory of their teen daughters Sophie and Acacia.
