Founder of Voice of Our Angels
This group, through countless experiences has taught me that life goes on with or without you. You must make a conscious decision to help yourself.
This group is not for the faint of heart. There are plenty of grief groups out there but the Admin team at VOOA helps to ensure that every parent has survival tools. We have someone on call 24/7 for peace of mind and heart when those thoughts hit especially during the early days. As our members get further along the become the on call support for others and do the giving back. We get down and dirty personal here unlike other groups.
We found that becoming accustomed to hearing spirit is not unique and happens to most whether it be in dreams, a thought that hits your brain or a real live voice in your ear. The Admin team puts together many learnings experiences from professionals who give from their hearts just for our members.
Many members have found purpose through this group and have gone on to help others in various ways. Beyond all else, unbreakable friendships have happened through the connections in this group. No matter what the members go on to do to fulfill a purpose in their child's memory, they still come back to this group where it all started.
If you know a bereaved parent who is willing to make strides forward and learn, feel free to send them along. Its not a pretty road but one that is not impossible either.
Be well <3
