After the death of my son I searched for help, support because I was lost and confused and didn’t know how I was going to make it to the next day. My son is gone, I scream to the skies because it hurts so bad, what am I going to do to deal with this pain and this loss, my only child is gone, how can life go on? Eventually I found the MISS Foundation on the Internet, read a bit about it and figured I’d give it a try. They have a group close to me. My first time going to support group, I really needed to talk, and I really needed support and understanding, even for someone to hold my hand because the pain was overwhelming and gut wrenching. I tried talking and expressing my feelings with the people in my life, but it never felt right after talking to them, either what they said to me or how I took it wasn’t helping. Luckily at the support group I found others that I could relate to, others that had lost a young adult child, and were just as devastated, sad and heartbroken as me. I found a safe place, a place where I could share my son’s life and also share my feelings without judgment. For this, I’m very thankful for the MISS Foundation and all the wonderful people involved.
