Are You An Inspirational Bereaved Parent?

Okay, lets be honest.  All bereaved parents are INSPIRATIONAL! 

We have experienced the greatest heartache and are still breathing.  I am always amazed at how the people in this community of bereaved parents are able to use their experience of pain and sorrow to transform their grief into something else, something different.  They are able to transform grief into a legacy of love and healing; through the books they write, organizations they create, and the support they provide for other grieving parents in the community.  All of this is done in the name of their child gone to soon.  It is a legacy of pure love

If you are a bereaved parent that has used your grief as a catalyst to help others heal, I want to hear your story.  Maybe you wrote a book about your healing journey, or maybe you started an organization that provides a special item to parents to help them in their time of sorrow, like a blanket, memory box, or card line.  Or maybe you created a support group in your area where there was a need for one.  Or maybe you have a blog where you share your story and in doing so, give permission to other bereaved parents to grieve openly about the loss of their child.

Whatever it may be, I want to hear about it.  As I am sure others want to hear your story too.

So here's what you do.  Send me three to four paragraphs about your story of grief transformation.  I want to know about your deep love for your child. I want to know how your child has motivated you to help others. I want to know when and how you knew you were ready to turn your pain and grief into something healing.

Send your story of transforming your grief to  Once I post your submission, remember to grab an Inspirational Bereaved Parent button and show it off with pride.  Others need to know how you are an AMAZING parent to your child no longer with us here on earth.

Also, keep following Stillborn and Still Breathing on Saturdays to read other stories by Inspirational Bereaved Parents as well as interviews I conduct with Well-Known Inspirational Bereaved Parents.  

I'm looking forward to sharing your story of being An Inspirational Bereaved Parent.      

Thank you for all you do to help others heal their grief.
