Please take a minute to introduce yourself, your child or loved one, and your story. This forum is, first and foremost, a place where we can all share our experiences of love and loss, grief and trauma, pain and anger without fear of judgment or ridicule or revulsion. I want to know who you lost and how. I'm here to validate your feelings and experiences. We each must walk our own road, and yet we're all on this journey together. I lost my daughter, Evelyn (forever 18) in early August 2017 unexpectedly. You can read more about her and my story on the "Our Story" page. In the meantime, to all the broken hearts who trod here ... welcome. I am so sorry you share this experience of loss, but so glad we can connect.
