… exists as a haven for families who have experienced one of life’s cruelest tragedies: the loss of a child, at any age or gestation, and from any cause of death. We believe in compassionate grief support, heart to heart, person to person, parent to parent, mom to mom. We believe compassion, unconditional love and support can make the unbearable, bearable. It can transform horror into honor and legacy.
Always remember: you are not alone. Your pain is our pain.
We believe healing lies in speaking the truth in your heart, both the darkness and the light, both the joy and the sorrow. We believing healing lies in allowing these contradicting emotions to coexist as you dip your toes back into life again, little by little, as you are able.
We believe grief lasts forever, just as love lasts forever.
Just as it takes a village to raise a child, it also takes a village to support grieving parents through the lifelong grief of losing a child. This is your village.
We’re on a mission to make compassionate grief support the norm.
Here you can feel safe, understood, held— loved. Here you can speak the truth about what your life after loss is really like. Here you can be silent among moms and dads who get it. Here you can cry freely. Here you can find hope. Here the name of your precious child will be remembered, honored, cherished— spoken.
Here you can speak your truth. Share your stories. Speak your child’s name.
We are listening— always— with open hearts and open arms. Let us be your soft place to land. We welcome you to join us wherever you are on your grief journey. We are here to walk with you every step of the way. Join our compassionate village at A Bed For My Heart: A Place to Rest Your Grieving Heart.
