I am a 45 year old married Mom with 3 kids. I lost one of my kids on March 23, 2011 which was the result of a traumatic brain injury he sustained from a car accident on March 1,2010. I am having a hard time dealing with my sons' death. He died in the arms of my husband, my younger son and myself and my heart just aches. My other kids and my husband are wonderful and we pretty much feed off of one another to deal with our loss. Are there any other parents out there who have lost a child? I would like to know what are you doing or what did you do to get through the rough days.

Sincerely,
Jan Willis-Stewart

Dear Jan: I have never experienced anything of this sort, but simply want you to know that someone is thinking about you and your family. Sometimes when our own life is difficult, if we can only muster enough strength and clarity to support someone else in need, this serves as the emotional catapult that nudges us back into our own sense of healthy routine. I have no idea what this might "look" like for you - maybe some sort of volunteering or telling your story in some way. Please know that I am genuinely sorry for your loss and hope that you and your family will soon be able to find balance in your lives.

Warmly,

Ann M. Hetzel

I am so sorry for your loss. I had an experience of losing a baby when he was 7 months in my womb. I cannot imagine loosing a child I have loved for so long. My experience I know cannot compare to yours. I only know that our Lord carried me when I couldn't breathe, when my body ached from the pain of not being able to hold him and that He can and will bring you through this grief. I will pray for you. I am sorry I cannot offer you more.
