I lost my daughter to domestic violence. She was shot in the face and the boyfriend is trying to convince authorities it was suicide. She had an 8 month old baby, whom I am now raising

Krisi,

I am sorry for your lost. I have lost 2 sons tto car accidents. My son Charlie(20) was killed on Dec. 21, 1991 and Scott(36) was killed in a car accident on April 23, 2004 and he had thrre girls and I am raising the youngest who is 10. I have been going to Compassionate Freinds, an organizationfor parents who have lost children. It has really helped me get through all of these years. If there is a group in your area I would recommend it.

If you need to talk please contact me and we can talk about your child and family.

oh Kristi, I can not fathom the pain of my child dying at the hands of someone else. What a tragedy you are having to live through. I hope for your sake that some domestic violence charges had been filed in the past by your daughter. But, as most physicians/psycologist will tell a jury women do not commit suicide by shooting themselves, especially in the face. I am sure that they did the gun shot residue test on him and her...The truth will come out. Keep her alive in your precious granchilds life, he will know through you how much his mommy loved him/her. I lost my daughter in an accident, just teenagers and lack of experience driving, her and her best friend both died that day. This I can accept as God's will, and though I am forever missing her and grieving for her it can be nothing compared to your loss. I pray that God will help you throughout all that is to come and that justice will be done for you precious daughter and her baby. God Bless

i lost my 23 yr old son 6 yr ago this month, it was a drug OD, he left behind a wife and 2 little boys, the mom gave the kids to her great grandparents, i get visits, all i can do is keep their daddy alive with stories, pictures and even a few secrets of bad actions from when he was little, it makes them laugh and they enjoy it, theres nothing you can do now for your daughter except take care of her child and keep her memory alive for that poor baby who will never know her mom, there's lots of us out there who have lost and i think we all deal with it in different ways--i'm home all the time, i dont know if theres anything i can say to help but i can listen--take care

I am so so sorry for your loss. I to am a victim of domestic violence and came very close to lossing my life had my son (20 months at the time) not woken up when he did. I hate it when people tell me that I am one of the "Lucky Ones" because if I was, or any survivor was, it would have never happen in the first place.



My sons father had broken into my apartment and I woke up at 5am on Jan 23rd 2009 to him standing over me with a knife. I honestly feel that had our son not woke up when he did to see his dad standing there, he would have killed me.



The moment I saw him standing there, I decided that I wasn't affraid to die. I was more terrified that if he had killed me, that in the process of him doing so, my son would have woke up and seen it happening.



I haven't been sleeping well the past couple of weeks. Everynight is full of nightmare after nightmare. He gets out of prison in 10 days and I know he is going to come after me and my son.



I really pray that justice is brought to your daughter and that they lock him up. I feel so sorry for that baby having to grow up without her. My prayers are with you and your family in this difficult time. Good luck and God Bless!

I lost my son a year ago. He left a lovely wife and 4 young children. I can relate on the grandmother level. I care.

If there is anything that I can do please let me know. I am a good listener and would be happy to lend an ear anytime. I am so, so sorry for the loss of your daughter.



I know this is a group that none of us would like to be a part of but we can offer each other support, understanding and friendship. My son, Jason, died in a car accident at the age of 12. It has been over 6 years since he died but I struggle with it every day. If you ever need or want to chat, let me know.
