At first I was terrified to attend a meeting. I didn't see myself as needing a support group, but now I can't imagine not having the support I found at Sharing Parents. I walked out of my first meeting feeling understood and normal.

Sharing Parents was the only place I could talk freely about my baby girl without having to worry about making others uncomfortable. No one else in my life understood that even though she never took a breath, for us she was as real and as loved as the child that celebrates her first birthday. The validation, support, and love we received was critical to helping us grieve in our own way and made healing possible.

It is unfortunate HOW we came to find Sharing Parents, but we are so thankful for the support and compassion they offer, since the grief journey of losing an infant/child seems so lonely. It’s comforting to know that we are not alone and that there are so many thoughtful and caring volunteers at Sharing Parents who are willing to help you through such an overwhelming grief process. Thank you!
