(The Loss of My Beautiful Son)

My Beautiful Son Adam

My Beautiful Son Adam

The worst moment of my life was being approached by two police officers on the 16th October 2009, I had booked a day off work to do some shopping, oddly I had switched my mobile phone off, so it was not until three hours later that I arrived home with the house phone ringing and lots of messages on the answer machine, as soon as I saw the police officers I knew this was something bad, my husband was in Spain so I was alone when the news that my son Adam had been killed in a car accident that morning on the way to college, from that moment my life had changed from the way I knew, I had to ring my husband and tell him that our son was dead. Adam had taken a corner too fast and lost control and hit a wooden fence, the car was perfect but a wooden stake had gone through the windscreen and into his chest, he died at the scene.

Adam had just reached his twentieth birthday on the 13th of October so his birthday cards were still around and his birthday cake, I had his washing on the line, this just did not seem real..

My husband and I will never recover from this, we live from day to day and socialise with the many friends that we have, yes we can laugh and have fun but we also cry as much.

The big saviour for me is that I have become very spiritual and regularly see a psychic medium, I have had so much contact with Adam and realise although his body is gone his spirit very much lives on, he can see everything that we do, he has also told me that one day when it is our turn to pass over that we will all meet again and realise why we were here to make this lifes jouney. He is very happy as all souls that pass are, they are all near you so talk to them and let them know how much you love them.

I do hope my story has helped.

Love and light to you all.

I am so sorry for your loss , I can identify with you so much.In 2007 I lost my gorgeous 18 year old son following a car accident.
I had the dreaded knock on the door from the police during the night informing me of the accident.
I was in shock for a long time and just couldnt accept that it was true.Like your son he had so many things left to do.over four years on now and I still suffer quite badly with depression, I have days where I simply do not want to be here.However I have 2 other children.
I think that people do not realise how bad I actually feel or realise the extent of my suffering.
You are lucky to have found a psychic medium who you are happy with and have had contact from your son.I have seen many since losing my son, but have not really been convinced.i just wish I could have a sign from him.
I do believe in life after death and hope that he is going to be waiting for me when I go

Dear Liz, so sorry about the loss of your son. He was such a handsome young man. Grief is something you cannot describe to others unless they have experienced it. After my husband died I felt like someone ripped my heart out. I don't think we will ever stop crying, but at least we can give thanks that we occasionally find some joy in our lives.Let your friends, family, and memories give you comfort.Share your feelings with others on this web site-it does help. Joanne, Chicago
