We had 13 parents coming along to our March meeting. We opened the meeting with a reading from Laura Wyatt Douglas ( taken from FB page) ‘Reasons I am strong’ for Maddi’
The parents could associate with what Laura wrote , no parent chooses to to become a bereaved parent and there is no choice but carry on living but every second of each day takes such tremendous strength.
Parents discussed dreams, some parents finding great comfort in dreaming about their child, some never dreamed about their child and longing to do so. This led to a conversation about seeing a mediator and feeling close to the child. Parents shared their experiences and discussed the pro and cons of it.
During the evening there was an opportunity for parents to chat to each other during cups of teas and coffees.
Our next meeting will be Thursday 18th April at 7.30pm at The Peartree Centre, 1 Chadds Lane, Peatree Bridge, MK6 3EB
Any parent who lost a child will receive a warm welcome.
