We’re thrilled to announce the creation of a worldwide child loss support group for Still Standing readers – TOGETHER.
TOGETHER is open to anyone who is grieving the loss of a child:
regardless of age, length of time, or circumstance.
Our hope for this group is it will be a beacon of hope on hard days.
A place to support healthy healing and processing.
A place to be honest, open, and find connection with those who truly understand this unique pain.
We want to encourage relationships, while also knowing that each journey is so unique.
Moderators who are both from our editorial team and supporters of Still Standing will be helping to make sure we stay on track and remain kind and supportive.
Please make sure to answer all questions and to read the rules if you choose to join.
It is a closed group, so while others might see you are in it, they will never know what you post.
We have strict rules to make sure you and your story are safe – but do remember that we can only do so much when it comes to moderation.
Feel free to share TOGETHER with your family and friends who may have lost a child.
We look forward to getting to know many of you and your children in a more personal, connected way.
Thank you for always supporting Still Standing.
We hope this gives back just a little to what you all have given us for years.
