Proud Parents of Loss was founded by a young couple whose first child was taken too soon.They started this organization in hopes that they could help bring grieving parents togetherby providing stigma-free grief support for them, no matter the cause or the age.
There are resources out there that we can connect you with. Most importantly we will make sure you get the support you need during this tragic time. Our center will offer weekly groups helping parents to come together and gain support from each other.
We know what it feels like to think you have no one to talk to during this tragic time. Your children are always remembered, even if it seems like the world forgets. We know the overwhelming sense of powerlessness that is felt when nothing is in your control and nothing can bring your child back.
Losing a child is the hardest thing that you will ever go through, but that doesn’t mean that you have to do it alone. We would hope that in a perfect world, no one would need this organization. But the truth is, parents around the world struggle through child loss at all ages, and each loss is just as tragic.
We believe in the power of fellowship. We believe that we are stronger together, rather than feeling we are alone or that there is something wrong with us. Stigma-free support needs to be available to grieving parents.Whether your loss was neonatal, perinatal or due to overdose, suicide, violence, illness, or any other cause, you deserve to feel supported — not judged or analyzed. We want to bring grieving parents together so they can help each other through this difficult time. We hope that as a result of our involvement with the community we can raise awareness so that grieving parents do not feel alone in their grief, but feel supported.
That one day you will feel supported and you will know others who have been where you are. We promise there is hope to find a way to cope with your new normal through becoming part of a community of grieving parents.
