Shane Whalen
This Prayer Circle is Dedicated to my son Shane Whalen Who Passed Away On March 15, 1999 at the Age of 24, & All Other Children


Start a prayer circle for bereaved parents who have lost a child.


There are many of us out there who have lost a child, and it is devastating. It changes the outlook on life, plunges you into a depression, and you think that the feelings and thoughts you have nobody else could possibly relate to. I think a prayer circle for bereaved parents would only benefit us and help us on our journey of grief. This Circle is one of Love, where a Grieving Parent can safely come to for Prayers, and to talk about their feelings.

Hi Angel moms. Deeeeep valley day, but what else is new , Donna please don't go away for a long time, you are part of the family and we need you.Lisa I'm glad you were able to go to the visitation and stay with your friend, you are brave, don;t think because you had a closed coffin means anything, I had to see my Solange with a wig, and she loved her haid, but her injuries were in the head so they had to shavewd it and open it, that was not easy to take, that does not matter, I could not say good bye to her either because she never regained concious. Our problem is that he have to accept it, and right now we can not, its too soon, lets give ourself time, this grieving its very strong so be easy with yourself, Eva you too, take care of yourself because you have other children to look out for, God will help us I am sure He will. Even though we are angry at Him, and we have lost some of our Faith He understand. Ay Sandy I'm in deep valley, the organ donors called me today to give me an update of how hte reciepients were doing, one of them died, the others are hanging on, that did not helped my day. , but again I'm holding on to God and to you Angel Moms. Verna, thank you for all your e mails, I hope that you are feeling better and remember you should write a book about MaDear, I will be the first to buy it. You are all in my prayers (whenever I can) Love you all. Selva

Good Morning Angel Moms! ~ May God grant each of you those precious moments of peace for which we all pray! I am hanging in there, but still advised to take it easy on the arm and hand. The swelling in my legs and feet are the main issue right now, and also, the bronchitis has caused the development of fluid and congestion around my heart. :( My doctor has me on some very strong antibiotics that is supposed to clear up the swelling and all that other stuff, so I am trying my best to take care. But, I really do miss being able to come here and post often. All of you are like family to me, and I get sooo depressed when I can't be here for you; especially our newly bereaved moms. I know you all understand, and pray for me and I do appreciate it so much. Just always know that I keep you all in my thoughts, which places you in my prayers. I love you all dearly and unconditionally!

I also want to thank each of you for the many emails and fwd pages that you have been sending to me. Please know that I appreciate them one and all. Sometimes, I try to respond to all of them but, sometimes I get a little behind. Please forgive me when that happens, and just keep on sending them, because I enjoy reading them sooo much. :)

For the record, I am still working on the final stages of my book, Chain Reaction. :) I just know it's going to bless sooo many angel moms for years to come, because I have followed my heart and made sure that any bereaved Mom can relate to it's contents. That's because I know how important it is to us to know that no matter where we are in our grieving, there is always someone who can relate to what we are going through. For, as we know all too well, the grief we feel when we lose a child/children is like no other that we have ever known. I pray that others who have not lost a child will also read my book someday, so that they will better understand how those of us who have feel, even when they think enough time has passed, and that surely we are over our loss. We Angel Moms know all too well that we never get beyond losing a child. Thank God, the pain is not always so intense, but we never get pass it. I think it is important that others know this. Maybe then, they will begin to relate to us in a more compassionate and understanding manner. I can also invasion my book being a great help to others who, God forbid, will someday know what we now know. For, as we know, no one is immune, and death can strike it's blow at any given time. Sometimes, we have time to say good bye, and sometimes we don't. Either way, it's a heavy cross to try to carry alone. So, angel moms, keep your fingers crossed, and hopefully in the not so distant future, you will be holding my book, Chain Reaction, in your hands!
Selva, ~ My next book will be about My mother, (MaDear). :) I started on writing a book about her life years ago, but put it aside. Now that I am much older and hopefully a little wiser, I hope to start working on completing it someday. She was such a hard working, loving, and compassionate person, who was so full of God's wisdom! She taught us so much about the hard times; back in the 20's, 30's, and 40's. The funny part about the 40's. I was born six months before the bombing of Pearl Harbor. I use to tell her, after I became an adult, I have such fond memories of growing up, because I never knew that we were poor! She would always get such a kick out of me saying that. :) But, it's true! I was such a happy, and curious child! And, being the last of her 7 children, my sisters and brothers had me thinking I was sooo smart and sooo special. I told her that everybody fooled me! Ha - ha! Ah, the memories! :)
Hang in there angel moms! I will try to post again later today ...
Much love to all.
Verna

Verna....Oh I can't wait to read the book you will write about your MaDear. I pray that God gives you great fond memories.Growing up.I too was raised in a poor family...I used to always tell my children just how lucky they were..having a bedroom of their own..no handme downs to wear...a tv to watch( I remember when we first got a tv.I was 12!)comforts of having a inside toilet! lol they were like uh uuh mom..I'm gonna ask grandma..ooooo kids..But you know..when a family is poor...the most important thing to me to give a child is love....and I am so thankful that God gave me the heart of love for my children..For it saddens me when I hear of a child who is being negeleted and shown anger and hate .and will grow up with such emotions.Well enough of my "rambling" as my daughters put it.Know that I anxiously await the many books God will bless you with!

Hi Mrsrebel. Welcome to this Circle of Love. I'm so sorry you lost your daughter, I also lost my only 20 years old daughter Aug 15, 2002, so I'm also going through this horrible pain, but please keep coming back to this Circle, you will find a lot of understanding, love and prayers which is what we all need right now. You have to try to get a hold just for your little grandaughter, that is wonderful that you have someone to look after, I will never be a grandmother, Let your pain out, like my Dr. tells me just feel the pain, don't fight it. It is the most awful pain in the world, there is nothing like this, but God will help us go through with it. I sometimes don't even have faith, although I keep on praying, this way Satan won't get a hold of me, so keep asking God all the questions you have right now, that is allright , He understand that we don't understand, so don't feel bad if you are angry at Him sometimes. I feel the same, like today I had a Valley day as we call it, and I question Him, Why me, Why my daughter, and there is no answer, but deeeeep inside I know that He knows what He is doing and I have to accept it even if I don't right now, the time will come when He will give me an answer, so please, keep coming back, we have Wonderful Angel moms here, who are in this grief longer than we have and they help us tremendously.Hang on to GOD, dear friend, He will help. Love Selva

Hi Eva. I'm glad you are feeling a little better today.You have no idea how much I think of you and pray, when I'm in my office with my co workers that are like family (20 years together) and I think of where you work, I really pray for you my friend,I'm glad that you changed places and are in a better enviroment. I'm in valley days, all I keep thinking now its the time Solange was in the hospital (only 2 1/2 days) the worse nightmare in my life, I talked to my Dr. about it and she said that is just a grieving process, our mind trying to cope with all the emotions step by step. You know, every day when I go and come back from work I have to pass by the cementery, that its so painful, I have not been able to visit my Solange's grave, I don't think I can handle it yet. My Dr. tells me its OK, there is nothing there, Her spirit is with God and the Angels, so I put flowers for her (Sun flowers and pick roses were her favorites) in my sister's house. Eva, you know that everytime I can pray, I do it for all our Angel kids and Angel moms. so be sure that you are also in my prayers. Love you sister. Selva

I'm so glad that you are in the final stages of Chain Reaction, I can't wait to read it also about MaDear.Please rest, even if we miss your beautiful posts, we want you to take care of yourself. I love you very much. Selva

Hello MrsRebel, and welcome to our Circle. I'm so sorry about losing your precious daughter not too long ago. Losing a child is the most painful experience that a parent will ever go through. It turns your whole world upside down and brings up so many, many emotions in you. The first year is spent in shock and disbelief and a lot of pain, so cry all you want, vent all you want, and talk about your feelings, all of us helps to let the pain slowly out. Don't listen to well-meaning people who tell you to get on with your life, you will eventually, but for now, allow yourself to grieve. Grieving for a child has no time-table, so please grieve at your own pace. That's so wonderful that you have your grandaughter, 15 months old is a cute age, and she's a living legacy of your daughter for you to love. Please come back here and post often, this is a safe place to let your feelings out, and you'll only find love, understanding, compassion and prayers here, we all understand. May Our Lord wrap His loving arms around you and give you peace and the strength to raise your beloved grandaughter. Love and prayers to you,
Luv Sandy

Hello dear Eva, I think of you and all our Angel Moms everyday too, and pray for you all. It's so wonderful that we can share with each other, Our Lord has truly blessed this Circle as I've said before. Oh, that's so sweet of you to say Eva, I'll be your 'backbone' anytime, you're never alone, I care and so do the other Angel Moms! I'm happy to hear that you're feeling a little better, rest is the best thing for a cold. I read your wonderful post to Verna, about the poor, neglected children in this world, it is terrible, did you know that Donna (Leander) has a Prayer Circle for those children here at Beliefnet? Just click on her profile, and you'll find it on her pages, the more prayers we say together for them, the more we're helping them.
Take care of yourself dear Eva, God loves you and so do I, much love to you,
Luv Sandy

Hello my dear Selva, ay that's so sad about one of the recipients dying, but at least he had some extra time with his family and hopefully the others will pull through and enjoy the gift of life from Solange. Everything is OK with me, I've just been busy these last few days but I don't mind, :). Oh, that's so sweet of you dear sister Selva, planting the forget-me-nots on Saturday for my Shane! Because of Donna and you, we'll both have beautiful gardens with flowers for our Angels! YES, I believe that all of our children have met too! Can you imagine how happy they all must be and talking about us Moms. God bless you dear sister, and you know my love and prayers are always with you and the other Angel Moms. Lots of prayer and love to you dear one,
Luv Sandy

To do that would be to take another job somewhere else..which means funds would be not be the same..I just don't know what to do.I talked with my Major today.told him how important it is for me to be off on Sundays.It seams like it's falling on deaf ears,Ron and are scheduled to be in a church this next Sunday to give another presentation..Looks like we're going to have to cancel...People at work are not even caring..It's like I work for non christians.Ron say sfor me to just call in..and if I get fired.which i won't..I have to be giving a warning then meet with the revieve board...God I'm letting this make me crazy..I need to let it go and trust God will provide in the case I do loose this job.What kind of world do we live in I ask myself?I keep singing that song to myself..the one Faith Hill sings..There Will Come A Day...Beautiful song...Well I need to go..I'm worn out...I liked to thank those who have visited my Matthew's page..Your words of incouragement mean so much to me..I love you all.....In His Care I struggle to press on....Eva
