About me

Who am I?

Tragically my 24-year-old daughter was brutally murdered as she ran in our neighborhood park. Every single thing changed that day. The person I was died that day too. I became a bereaved mother.

I belong to a group of bereaved parents who have experienced the unimaginable loss of a child. We understand firsthand the depths of grief, pain, and sorrow that come with such a tragedy. We have walked this road together and found solace in each other’s company. Although nothing can replace our lost children, we find comfort in knowing we are not alone. Our collective experience has shown us that there is hope for healing after such an unbearable loss.

We are a community

We are all about community of bereaved mothers. In connection with others, we strive to find joy within our grief. We create an intimate space to share stories and experiences, provide comfort and offer support while learning to live with the sadness of our losses. We understand that grief is a deep and often isolating emotion, but we remain strong in the face of it. Our collective strength allows us to move forward and appreciate life’s beauty even during difficult times.


Kind-hearted friends and family suggested counselors. I went to multiple. Most didn’t get it. One told me I must “let go of my Lauren”. That ended abruptly with me screaming “No, never!”. Grief isolation is intensely unimaginable to most.

We are all about bereavement

We are all about bereavement. Our goal is to create a safe, non-judgmental space for individuals to express their feelings, stories, and experiences. We know that the pain of losing someone we care about can be hard to bear, so we want to provide an outlet for people to share their emotions with others who understand what they’re going through.
