Our mission

Our mission is and has always been to ensure that none of us who have found ourselves on the tragic side of loss to never feel alone, no matter the circumstances.  We do this by ensuring that bereaved parents are given opportunities to fulfill their needs and belonging at this current time in life and forever.  This is sustained by providing services to read material that relate to what we are going through;to talk to others who we know truly do understand;and to gain information that in some way relates to our loss and the challenges we are facing as people and as parents.

 

In the process, we have found that by speaking up about our experiences and their immediate and long-term impacts on us, it helps the public to learn the real extent of the loss, and the importance of making all possible efforts towards helping parents at such a tragic time in their life.  It also helps relatives and friends, and caring others such as health care professionals learn how they can offer the most meaningful support at such a hard time in our lives.

 

We hope you will benefit from our site and our organization, and you are welcome to be in touch with us at any time.
