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
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.
