To those of you who have had multiple losses, I would love to send you as my gift our amazing and beautiful documentary film, Portraits of Hope: The Parent's Journey. On it, you will meet a family who also had multiple losses and what has worked for them over the last 30 years. There is also a lot of beautiful, helpful, and inspirational messages on the film for you. If you would like to receive a free copy, just email me directly at

My heart aches for all of us who find ourselves on the long and windy journey of creating new lives without our children here. Together we can make it...

Love and hugs, Erika's Mom, Susan Whitmore, Founder & President of griefHaven

Hi Everyone. Susan Whitmore here, founder and president of griefHaven and Erika's mom. Although our next newsletter is going out tomorrow and we are recommending this book in it, I wanted to share with you here (in case you aren't on our mailing list to receive our newsletters) about one of the most extraordinary books about the death of a child I've ever written (and THAT is saying a lot, since I have read hundreds of books). Chanel Brenner lost her son, Riley, and after his death, with no poetry training at all, she began writing...and writing...and writing. What came of it is the extraordinary and beautiful book of poetry, Vanilla Milk.

I/we highly recommend you check out this book. I have read it four times. It only takes 20 to 30 minutes to go through all of the poetry, but Chanel speaks to our hearts, and each poem will resonate deeply with all of you. You can look into it at

LAST: PLEASE get on our mailing list if you aren't already. I am worried about you missing important announcements, invitations, and much more. You can just go to the home page of our website and click on "mailing list" or "packet of hope." Sending you all much love.

Take care of each other. We'll be checking in with you regularly! Love and hugs, Erika's Mom, Susan

Having a sad week. Got a baby shower invite in mail Monday from hubby's cousin. Her shower is in a few weeks towards end of month. Then, miscarriage support group was Tuesday and it made me feel sad cause the other people in the group have a place to go and talk to their children since they lost them to stillbirth and at 3 months for one couple that came tuesday night. And we don't have anything or had anything to have buried and stuff.

Hi Janetta,
I'm so sorry for all your losses. It must be horrible to keep having this experience over and over.
Sending you love and light as you heal.  May the great mysterious Universe send you a healthy, bouncing baby to fill the void.

Thanks Lorraine,
Mother's Day is always so hard and for me even more difficult this year.  My mom passed suddenly a few weeks ago the day before I returned home from Peru.  I too would like to acknowledge all the mom's out there today sending loving, peaceful thoughts and light.

This is an amazing story.  I am also a Reiki practitioner - studying for the Master Reiki.

As it is Mothers Day today, I am wishing all mothers who have lost a child, peace and comfort in your memories and acknowledge to the hurting bereaved Mothers that I know how difficult your day has been and send love and caring out to you all.  It has been ten years since my son passed and I am amazed that I got through this.

I have lost my only daughter and my best friend. I feel lost and angry although it has been more than 2 and a half years. I have two son's but one is very sick and consumed with alcoholism and the other lives in another city. They do not seem to understand the things we do to comfort ourselves or the tremendous loss we feel on occasions such as Mother's Day. I feel very angry with the entire world and do not want to feel like this. I still cry every day. Everything reminds me of my daughter as we were so close. I miss her and I miss her children as we see them very seldom. I would not say that I have lost my faith, but it has definitely been shaken. I understand that I must function in this world and for my sons but it is difficult. Thank you for listening to my heartache. I know you are all feeling the pain that I feel.  Lanny
