"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. You can also find me and a group of moms on Facebook @ firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are tied together and connected by the heartstrings of our loss, grief and a desire to experience a measure of God's love, comfort and peace.
After retiring from being the Co-Founding Director of "Mothers Like Me Comfort Ministry" for grieving moms in 2013 after being diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009 with a re-occurrence in 2015, I am grateful that I have been cancer free for more than 5 years!
Though I am no longer in full-time grief support ministry, my heart is settled on continuing to be available and connected to moms like me through this website and via email at email@example.com, one-on-one's and speaking about my personal journey through grief with faith and hope, because of the love of God, and my heart-to-heart connections with other moms who have suffered the loss of a child.
My mother's heart hurts to think of grieving moms who live with this great loss everyday and try to make it through their journey of grief alone. I have personally experienced, in the company of hundreds of grieving moms through the years, that the journey is better made in the company others who grieve and especially other "moms like me."
I am pleased that you have visited my website. You can also join my Facebook page where many other moms are connected, encouraged and have an opportunity to interact with one another regularly at https://www.facebook.com/AMotherLikeMe
