      Hi all,  I'm sure you've noticed some changes in the forums. We've again had to do some updates, so that's why things may look a little different. Nothing major should have changed.  Also, we are going to start adding advertisements sensitive to our community on the boards. This is something we are experimenting with, and we will certainly make sure they are in the best interests of everyone. We want to make sure our forums continue to stay accessible and cost free to all of our members, and this is a way to ensure this.  If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to privately message me or email me at Konnie@beyondindigo.com.  As always, we will be here with you, ModKonnie

I see a lot of parents who have lost their adult children. Is there anyone who has lost a child in their youth?

Red_9213 - I lost my 2 1/2 year old son in 1992 to an accident in the home. He was climbing on a dresser when he was supposed to be taking a nap and it fell over on top of him. It was the most horrible experience of my life!

You are in a good place here. All of us have experienced child loss, and we have a good idea of what you are going through. You are welcome here.

Thank you, Tommy's mum. It was the most horrible experience I've ever been through! It took me a very long time to get strong enough to carry the grief rather than it carry me. As other posts on this site will attest, you never get over it. You get strong enough to carry it. One thing I've discovered along the way, is that I could heal as long as I did the work to make me heal. I also found that it was a very gradual process.
