Community & Resources To Help You Heal

Our Mission:

Helping Parents Heal is a non-profit organization dedicated to assisting bereaved parents to become Shining Light Parents by providing support and resources to aid in the healing process. We go a step beyond other groups by allowing the open discussion of spiritual experiences and evidence for the afterlife, in a non-dogmatic way. Affiliate groups welcome everyone regardless of religious (or non-religious) background and allow for open dialog.

In late 2017, the parents of the Helping Parents Heal Tampa Affiliate enthusiastically took part in sharing some of the surprising and unexpected blessings they have experienced since their children transitioned.

The Helping Parents Heal Newsletter

This newsletter is a space that allows us to share our amazing children with stories of validation and spiritual growth. We hope that it will bring some peace and comfort to you and your loved ones. For article submissions or questions, you can reach me at Together, we will help each other heal! ~ Elizabeth Boisson

For Grieving Parents and Siblings:

please know that you are not on this road alone.

We have also walked this path and share an understanding of the pain you are facing. Helping Parents Heal is here to help. People may sometimes shun you because they don’t know what to say. Others may not mention your child’s name, fearing it will upset you when it would actually bring you some joy to hear them say that name. Still, others may care and have good intentions, but say the wrong thing because they’re not sure what to communicate. Some people may even be so harsh as to ask, “Isn’t it time you were over this?” All of these things come from ignorance, for only those who have walked in our shoes can truly understand what it feels like to lose a child. We have found a way to heal and move forward in a positive manner. Once again, we’re able to experience joy in our lives and are pleased to share our healing path with you.

If you are a bereaved sibling, please also visit the Facebook site of our sister group, Helping Siblings Heal, led by Anna Buckmaster and Kailee Savoie
