INTRODUCE YOURSELF

On this page I believe it would be helpful to briefly tell others about our deceased children, using the "post comments" link.  Doing this will make our sharing more personalized. And that way we can "know" a bit more about those who share comments on this site! I will show what I mean:

" I'm Donna from AZ and I have two children that have transitioned. They are Michael, who died at age 2 and 1/2 years old, and Lisa, who died at age 9 1/2 months old from injuries sustained from an auto accident."

  1. My name is Dale from Florida and my child, Brandon, who was my youngest of three, my only son, died by suicide at age 29, three years ago, March 6, 2009. I am forever sad until we can be joined again in Heaven.

    He will always be my "Maximus" and I miss him greatly. This grief is a leech that has sucked my happiness away until.....

    1. Welcome Dale! Bereaved Moms as yourself, who are feeling overcome by sadness, are my intended audience... I will do my best to try to give a cup of cold water to the tired and weary among us bereaved Moms. Our children who died in Christ have,essentially,"won the lottery..." generosity and abundance is never ending for Brandon...and awaits us Believing Moms, also!

  2. Hi moms, My name is Linda and my adult son, Edward died almost three years ago. His angel date as I call it is September 4,2009. He was my only child and as an adult he and I were best friends. He died suddenly of a heart attack. The first symptom of his heart anamoly was death. But I do have faith that he is alive in Jesus. My life is changed forever, yet God and my son still give me gifts...special sign that because He (Jesus) lives, Eddie lives also. My prayer for all my dear sisters missing their children is that you are comforted and feel your children close by.

    1. Welcome Linda! With your dear son Edward's angel date coming up, please remember to get lots of rest (or as much as you can anyway!) and good nutrition...we need to stay as fit as we can to fight the battle of grief, especially during early years. It CAN make a difference! :-) And I will have a candle lit for Edward on September 4!

    2. Hi Donna, thank you for lighting a candle for Ed on his angel date. I love that you called him Edward. I am the only one that ever did and lately I've been calling him Edward a lot when I talk about him. Love & peace, Linda

  3. Edward is a beautiful name. Early on, I didn't feel the freedom I have now, when I thought of my deceased children's names. For some reason, I was almost rigid on calling them only Michael and only Lisa. I call them now all sorts of endearments and nicknames...some old, and some new... With more freedom from overwhelming sorrow came the ability I think, to have some freedom and "fun" with their names, too!

  4. Hi Donna ~

    Our gifted, beautiful daughter, Corrie,left this earth on July 27, 2009 at the age of 21 when she was struck by a drunk driver. If time is truly measured by the good accomplished and the number of lives blessed, then she lived longer than many 90 year olds. Her greatest joy was to reach out to help those in distress and to make her corner of the world as positive and wonderful as she could.

    In honor of her memory, I deeply appreciate your uplifting and helpful observations and comments, always with the promise and reassurance of eternal life and a reunion with our precious children.

    Thank you!

    Debbie

  5. Welcome Debbie and thank you! Beautiful Corrie's tragic death due to a drunk driver, such a bitter pill to swallow (as all our children's early transitioning) ...You are living proof that bitterness can be overcome to the Glory of God. You are bringing greater awareness to the issue of drunk driving and its consequences--Corrie's transitioning has brought increased awareness and appreciation of life to all who know and love her. "Corrie Gifts" are still being given...along with her unique abilities-- now used on a higher plane-- while awaiting being reunited with all who yearn for her. I feel the greatest gift we have and can share as bereaved Christian Moms, is the truth that our children ARE STILL ALIVE--and thriving nonetheless! (through the gift of God) :-)

  7. Welcome Dusty, and I am so saddened by how your dear daughter Neva left this life. Know that only the beauty of being in Paradise with Jesus is what she is experiencing now. Reunion awaits us believers, and until then, asking Jesus for His help and strength to carry on, is vitally important. Take only one day at a time, as that is "enough" to handle. You and God can do it! Always remind yourself, that Neva STILL LIVES and that Reunion is coming...

  9. Hi Dusty,
    I am saddened, yet not surprised at how much pain you are going through. It doesn't get any worse I believe, than losing a child. But what keeps me going is the firm belief that we HAVEN'T lost our child...our child has been FOUND by God, in Whose Hand we must place our own weak, frail hand.
    It is normal to focus on the severe loss of your dear daughter. When one can't stand it another second-- I found that after the worst of the depth of near despair--afterward there was no where else to go but UP off the floor. Stay close to Jesus--He alone can save us...all others may try, but, being human we all fall short. Your daughter is still alive...she has only transitioned before you do...and you will see your daughter again and that is number one important to never forget!!! Love never dies!

  10. I am Jill. I lost my only child and so very much loved daughter, April Katharine, due to serious mental illness (suicide) on March 2, 2011. The only reason I am still here is because of Jesus. I will not allow myself to be separated from Him for eternity by taking my life, but my life is basically a living hell, day and night. I look forward to my last breath: horrible to even think about this. I think it may displease Him but I know He understands.

  11. Hi Jill,

    You are traveling along a very difficult pathway...Bereaved Moms can find the hardest thing to do is just facing another day...Yet as you say, Jesus understands. He can strengthen us when we are feeling weak from the pain of loss. Jesus saves, for which I am a fellow indebted traveler...You're in my thoughts and prayers.
