Our grief retreat was one filled with love, understanding, healing and support. We gathered as parents with the common experience of child loss. Many of us never met before. This type of loss is so profoundly painful we often feeling isolated and alone. I knew we needed something to come together but I could never have imagined just how it unfold. Putting the pieces together from a place of love and healing resulted in the most amazing group of parents coming together. I have heard it before that if you want to meet a courageous loving warrior meet a grieving parent. The courage and openness was something I have not experienced in other groups. Friendships were formed but it was the enthusiam and open heartedness that I was most impressed with this past weekend. I thank everyone who showed up physically,emotionally and with so much courage. I thank Rehtaeh for making this magic happen. She has always been my driving force and she continues to be.
