My greatest achievment
Welcome to The Griefy Way, I am Edwina.
I am a mother of two beautiful boys. One thrives in my home, and one floats above in The Griefy Way.
My firstborn son Sebby left this earth when he was 10 months old. It's a tragedy, but he is no longer here. My second son Dash is the breath of fresh air our family waited for after we lost Sebby; he is an absolute delight.
Motherhood is the greatest gift I have ever been handed. I am so in awe of every moment and opportunity my boys have given me.
Along the adventure that is fresh grief, I have found it hard to find places that celebrate the small people we have lost, rather than highlight the fact that we lost them. So here, you will learn about my gorgeous Sebby, and the way I have navigated life as a mother without her child.
The loss of Sebby does not define him, nor me as a mother. Every day is a challenge. I chose to keep moving through life, but without him under my wing, it is hard.
I am not alone.
There are many bereaved parents out there, searching for a small slice of peace, joy, anything that can relieve our pain for a short time. If you have found me because you too have lost your child, I am so sorry for your loss, and I am here for you.
There is no template for what we should be, how we should look, or how we should act after we lose a child. Some of us can be strong; others won't rise every day; we will all cry. Every response is perfect, so don't doubt that you aren't doing ok.
I welcome your contact and would love to share your story. I want to hear your child's name and to share your burden, even just for a moment, as I know this load is heavy sometimes.
