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
fits you and your family. Here are just a few ideas.
