I am always looking for ways to help moms that are grieving over the lose of a child/children. I personally have used writing as an outlet for the bad and the good days since my daughter died. In my own road to recovery after expereincing postpartum depression I felt as though I lack a bit of closure to that trajic day on May 29, 2013.
I had emotions that I still carried and was holding on to and didn't want to let go of. To be honest I didn't want people to know that I felt that part of her death was my fault, and that I felt I should have done more and been better and so on and so on. From those feelings came the thought of writing a letter to my daughter that totally expressed how I felt about losing her and how much that changed my life and my letter also included how I vowed to help woman like myself on their personal road to recovery. I can honestly tell you that after writing that letter there was a weight lifted from me during every word I typed and all the way until I was done. It was the best decision I had made thus far.
So I want to help you mommies out there by publishing your letters and thus helping you to release at least a little of what may be holding you back. I will start posting letters every Wednesday starting July 5th via our website at www.shadesofblueproject.org If you would like to add your letter to your Angel child/children Please submit them to us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org We look forward to helping you with this chapter of your Road to Recovery.
With Lots of Love
