Additional sources for bereaved parents

In my last blog I listed some chat rooms for bereaved parents. Here are additional sources for your perusal. Next week I will tell you a story about a very spiritual person and her young baby who died.

Fernside Online A non-profit, non-denominational organization serving grieving children and their families. This site encourages sharing stories, feelings, and memories with trusted friends, honoring the search for new beginnings.

Hygeia Just as despair can be given..only by another human being, hope, too can be given..only be another human being. An online journal for pregnancy and neonatal loss.

MISS (Mothers in Support and Sympathy) An organization with the mission of providing a safe haven for parents to share their grief after the death of a child.

Angel Child Legacies This site offers parents the opportunity to celebrate the life of their child or children by submitting the child’s legacy to the site. Help with saying “just the right thing” is offered.

Angel Hugs Real help to get through the bad times like holidays, birthdays, death anniversaries, and family gatherings. Includes a “photo tribute” to “our beautiful kids” and “stories from heaven.”

Miscarriage Support and Informational Resources Support for women who have suffered a miscarriage can be found through the comprehensive list of chats, newsgroups, books and more.

Virtual Memorials They create memorials that celebrate the lives and personalities of those lost and provide a place where these cherished images and biographies will have a permanent home.

Journey of Hearts: You are invited to join the journey of recovering from losses and significant life changes – a process that does not occur overnight. Journey of Hearts was designed to be a Healing Place with resources and support to help those in the grief process following a loss or a significant life change. This site offers something for anyone bereaved.

The Grief Warehouse Designed for parents who are coping with the death of their child. The goal is to be a warehouse of information and personal experiences…a place where you can come, gather ideas, and share what worked for you on your journey of grief.

Angels of Addiction They offer support and help to the addict, and support for bereaved families and friends.
