You are not alone. There are people who've walked this path and are there to help

you navigate through. After we lost our son, we were looking for whatever we could

to help us learn to live with this "new normal."

Here are a few things that helped us...
Compassionate Friends is a support group for parents who've lost children. They meet

once a month in different cities. For more information and locations, click on the link

above. Click herefor information on the Sioux Falls Chapter. 

Smile Again Ministries is a retreat center for parents who've lost children. To be

honest, this place saved our marriage. We have gone three times now and this is

what we are trying to create in the Sioux Empire.   

Seek Counseling...We highly encourage you to find a counselor in your area that

the Father of all compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles,

so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God."
