"A Mother Like Me"
Comfort, Hope and Encouragement for Grieving Moms
The loss of a child marks the beginning of a journey through grief that will lead to healing and peace or to crippling pain, sorrow, doubts, perplexities and despair.
This website is created for moms who have suffered the loss of a child. The benefit and convenience of online social networking makes it possible for us to be connected, as a community of moms, even if we can't be together face-to-face or companion with one another side-by-side.
We are connected by the heartstrings of our loss, grief, and a desire to experience a measure of God's love, comfort, hope, encouragement. and healing peace.
After retiring from grief support ministry leadership, as the Co-Founding Director of "Mothers Like Me Comfort Ministry" for grieving moms in 2013, my heart is still turned toward grieving moms. It hurts me to think of the increasing number of grieving moms who live with the intense, unthinkable loss of a child/children everyday. And, these numbers continue to grow with the heartbreaking epidemic of suicides and drug overdoses in our Nation. To live with such loss is challenging, and the journey of grief is better made in the company of others who are acquainted with grief, especially other "moms like us."
