3Hopeful Hearts Support Groups

"The journey of a thousand miles begins with one small step."

This famous quote by Lao Tzu always reminds me of how I felt walking into my first support group after the death of my son. It had been less than two weeks since the unthinkable loss of our only child and walking into that room full of bereaved families was extremely difficult. The group wasn't 'magic.' There were no words uttered that could take my pain and grief away. But there was a sense of validation, a sense of shared empathy; as I realized that others had journeyed through grief and found ways to find hope again. As I listened to their stories, I knew that each loss was uniquely tragic but that we all shared a common bond. I stopped feeling so isolated and realized that I really wasn't going crazy - I was simply deeply grieving.

3Hopeful Hearts invites you to attend any of our monthly support groups, each designed for grieving parents and other family members.
