Today Tywana and I sign the agreement to start a chapter of Helping Parents Heal in Cincinnati/Southwest Ohio. Since Shayna passed there has been a sequence of undeniable synchronicities that kept leading us back to HPH including someone suggesting I contact Mark Ireland since his son passed suddenly at 18, to meeting Roberta Grimes who is good friends with Elizabeth Boisson, the other cofounder to running into a board member, Mark Pitstick.
Helping Parents Heal is a a support group for parents whose children have transitioned. We do not say we lost our children, even though that might come out out of habit on occasion. Our children have passed into the next life. They have graduated. Our children are not lost. We know where they are. They are happy and healthy, more healthy than they ever were in the body. We help each other grieve, but we bolster our confidence in the continuity of life and family by examining the afterlife evidence.
It will be a couple of months before we start having meetings as we work through the logistics of where and when to meet. It sucks to be a part of this group, but another belief we have is that this was planned, by us, before we were even born. Shayna was here for a reason. We are here for a reason and this is one of them.
