The Anniversary Of My Child’s Death

Thirteen years ago, on this day, my life changed forever. My beautiful teenage daughter died unexpectedly. My world came crashing down in ways I never dreamed imaginable.

There is hope and help out there for families grieving the loss of a child, no matter the age of that child.

 

The words of TCF’s Founder, Simon Stephens resonate with those who have come to The Compassionate Friends hoping to find a purpose in a life that suddenly seems so empty.

Whether your family has had a child die (at any age from any cause) or you are trying to help those who have gone through this life altering experience, The Compassionate Friends exists to provide friendship, understanding, and hope to those going through the natural grieving process.

Through a network of more than 650 chapters with locations in all 50 states, as well as Washington DC, Puerto Rico, and Guam, The Compassionate Friends has been supporting bereaved families after the death of a child for four decades.

The National Office and its staff also provide many levels of support to our chapters, as well as individual responses to those who call on the phone, contact us through our website, or send an e-mail that simply says, “My child has died. Help me!” We will be here as long as you need us. That is our commitment to you. Click here to read more.

 

For parents out there who have lost a precious child, I understand.
