When we tragically lose one of our children, our entire world comes to a grinding stop and everything we have ever believed is questioned.
Through understanding this journey you have been given, my wish for you is to connect to a new hope and to a process of complete healing.
You may at first not understand how you could ever survive this loss, that there can be no way out of this pain, yet overtime, I promise, there is a way through.
Our son Nathan was 9 years old when he was hit by a car. He had massive head injuries as a result of his accident and we were told he was brain dead. We were encouraged to turn off his life support and donate his organs. Two days later we did just that and sadly said our last goodbye.
How do you begin this journey? Who prepares you for this sudden change? How do you wake up the next morning knowing they won’t be in your life anymore?

Karen, it reads beautifully, thank you for opening your heart and soul so fearlessly so that others may find peace and happiness. I had heard of Nathan’s gift but to hear the story from you was very powerful.
You write from the heart with grace and style.
Love your work.
Much love, Marg
I hold a deep thought now for both you and Nathan, having some sense of your loss by means of my own experience of such a tragedy. H ❤
