purposes are to promote and aid parents in the positive resolution
of the grief experienced upon the death of their child, and to
foster the physical emotional health of bereaved parents and siblings.
We aim to provide an atmosphere where personal change,
growth, and resolution of grief is most apt to occur.

and who can be an example that parents can adjust to the death
of a child and again find life meaningful and purposeful.

members to speak freely and openly about what helps or hinders
in coping with their grief, with respect and consideration for
those who may disagree.
We understand that every bereaved parent has individual
needs and rights, we never suggest that there is a correct way
to grieve or that there is a preferred solution to the emotional
and spiritual dilemma raised by the death of our children.
