On May 11, 2016, my 4-year-old grand-princess Alanna died in a tragic accident, enrolling our family into the school of grief; and starting our long journey to healing and wholeness.
I know firsthand the heartache of losing a child and the complication that comes with being a grieving grandparent and caregiver. I also know the struggle of searching for resources and support while on the journey of healing riddled with obstacles including ‘complicated grief’, moral injury and trauma, and I realized through my studies that others were experiencing the same struggles. Encouraged by mentors, I have taken my place as a guide to help others in my own unique way while they are also traveling this difficult path.
I’m damaged, not destroyed. I know grief, but I also know each person is their own grief journey expert, just some need a guide to help them travel well. It is my desire to be that guide. I see you, and I want you to know you don’t have to walk alone.
