Death adult child...

Welcome to the "Lost Adult Child" page. Losing a child is without a doubt one of the hardest griefs to endure. You invested many years of your life loving and supporting him or her. You endured the teenage years and in return saw them turn back into a human being! He or she likely then became one of your best friends. There is a special bond between a parent and his adult child that is priceless and special.

And when you lose that child to death, it goes against nature. You are not supposed to outlive your child! As hard as it is, we know that in time you will overcome your loss and find your way back to life without him or her.

May you begin to heal by telling others about the loss of your own special child, and also find some comfort in similar stories posted by other bereaved parents.
