Our Mission

To Comfort, support and console each other through our website that is dedicated to peace, compassion and understanding. A safe haven for those who have suffered the worst loss, the death of a child;

A place where compassion, understanding and others who have travelled this dark lonely path may meet;

A place that allows the bereaved to accept their loss in their own way; and in their own time;

A place where we wrap our empty arms around each other in times when the pain just won't go away;

A place where you find you are no longer alone.

Our Goals

Feelings of our members are valid. Feelings are neither right nor wrong. They just are;

To work as a group towards our goals and not get caught up in "Control Issues";

To treat each other with kindness, compassion and respect, as emotions sometimes are very close to the surface during grief;

To be gentle with our words, remembering that words are sometimes all the comfort we can offer, and words can harm as well as comfort;

To promote awareness of the grieving process, both to ourselves and others;

To help ourselves by sharing our experiences;

To recognize and validate the many feelings that are part of the grieving process;

To help others help us by expressing our feelings;

To educate those around us so they may better assist and understand our needs during this most difficult time;

To be there for each other during the hardest and most difficult days, hours and minutes still ahead.

To unify as a group while working toward common goals yet still allow each member to maintain their individuality;

And to never forget our group has an exclusive membership. Those who join share a common bond. They are one of us as a result of the death of a child;

To remember the "Golden Rule" and apply it in all we say and do in respect to all members;

Heaven's playground knows no sex, race, or age. It is open to all our children. We are here because we are their survivors.
