We would first like to say how very sorry we are that you have found this site. You or someone you know may have just started their own personal grief journey and that crushes us. This walk will be hard and at times will feel as if it’s never ending and all consuming. Please know that we are simply, sorry. Sorry for your pain. Sorry for your loss. And sorry that you’re walking down this path. Our hope is that you find the light in this darkness and hold onto it as firmly as you can. It’s a long journey. One filled with pain and anger and frustration and more tears than you know what to do with, but in time, you’ll be able to see hope and love and grace again. Hold onto each other and reach out to the light.
This site was created for so many reasons. The first and foremost is that we wanted to choose to honor our daughters. They both meant so much to us, and as a remembrance and tribute to them, we choose to reach out to others in an attempt to help them through their own grief walk. We also know so much more than we did when we first walked into the hospital to deliver our daughter, Jorai. There are things we would have done differently and things we wished we would have known. We also had two totally different hospital experiences at the same hospital and it is our hope to work with local hospitals to improve their procedures.
We hope that you can find solace and helpful resources within the following pages. Please let us know if there is anything we can do for you or specific prayers we can pray. Know that you are not alone in this journey and the more you reach out to others, the more friends you will find who have walked this same road.
We send you our love and support through your journey. May you grieve fully and embrace each emotion as it comes.
Peace and love, the Newmans.
