Together with six to 10 other parents and a specially-trained counseling professional, you will address specific issues faced by families on this unique journey. It is a place to do something just for you. It is a beginning place to realize that hope and loss can co-exist.
Topics focused on include your family, your story; the role of defense mechanisms; missed milestones; impact on relationships; social milestones missed as a family system; and reframing life as you know it.
Sharing with others that are on the same path helps participants learn that their feelings are common and natural.
