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.

Dear Eva,
How are you doing? I think of you and wonder? I want you to know that my prayers are with you as I know it hasn't been that long for you. Please know that you are in my prayers always. Keep looking up to Him for that is where you will find peace. It's hard I know, but this is what we have to do in order to survive is to rely on Him as our source of strength. It takes alot of courage to write in the early stages of grief, I don't think I could've done it. I started here at this circle after 2 years and it was so painful then. We are all here for a reason, to support one another, as we learn to live with our loss of our precious children. I believe it helps to come and be open and to be able to express our feelings here because it's a safe place to rend our hearts. We all totally understand even though our circumstances are different, but the feelings are the same. It hurts and there's no way around it except through it. God is always with you and will get you through your pain. He loves you Eva.
Dear Lord, I ask You to keep Eva close to Your side and give her Your peace and comfort in her heart. Bless her with Your love all around her today and everyday, In Jesus Name, Amen. God Bless you Eva. Lots of love.
Love, Yvonne<><

Dear Barb,
How are you? It's so good to see a post from you. God Bless you! I think often of you too. I also see a penny from time to time and I think of you and your Carol, I then say a prayer for you and Carol. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers as the 4th anniversary for Carol comes on the 2nd of April. It still seems unreal doesn't it? Please know that God is holding you up during these times of darkness. He will not let you go. He wants to give His comfort and peace to you. He is your strength and hope. God Bless you Barb and post again as we can all help each other through these hard times. You are loved here and prayed for!
Dear Father, I lift up Barb to You and ask that You fill her heart with all the comfort and peace and love from a loving God that will never leave us. Let her feel Your strength again. Be with her today and everyday. In Jeus Name, Amen. God Bless you Barb. Lots of love to you!
Love, Yvonne<><

Hello dear Yvonne, I'm so happy that you posted, we miss you and it's always nice to come here and see a posting from you! Thanks for your prayers Yvonne for myself and my family, you're truly a Prayer Warrior, God bless you. I'm not doing too badly, but I seem to be going through a phase too, hard to put into words, but it's as though I'm grieving for the 4 years that Shane hasn't been in my life. It's not as bad as it was in the beginning, but something that I have to deal with and go through. Maybe it's something similar to what you're going through, God love you. Oh gosh, Joe's birthday, you should have posted about it, the special days are so hard but I'm happy that you got through it, as hard as it must have been for you and your hubby. What were once happy days are now days of pain. The Spring wreath must look so nice at Joe's site, and what else but a Dove to put at his site, his sign to you! It sounds really beautiful and that's pretty neat how it's wings will flap in the wind - I agree, Our Lord did steer you in the right direction to find that beautiful Dove, and putting one in your memorial garden's a good idea, then you can see it all the time! I have a feeling though that your real Dove is going to make it's appearance again. Is there another wedding in the family, with you making the bridesmaid dresses or is it for someone else? You're such a talented seamstress, I know they'll turn out beautifully! Thank you for your kind words Yvonne, I couldn't do it without God's help and I agree, I believe too that He has blessed this Circle of Love. Yes, it would be wonderful to meet, if not here, then in Heaven, with our children all beside us! You take care of yourself, remember that you are loved and prayed for here, and I hope and pray that your Spring and Summer will also be a good one, with all that God has in store for you too! Let us know when you see your dove. May God's blessings and peace be upon you and your family, and much love to you too!
Love Sandy

HI Verna, Sandy, Eva, Yvonne, Lisa, Donna and all you wonderful Angel Moms. Just to let you know that (you know I'm honest) even though I don't feel that strong faith, I keep on praying for all of us Angel moms and all our Angel kids, I had a bad day two friends died today, wow I guess we all have to go some time , but it has not been a quiet day, and together with the war and all. I took a vacation day today, to try to catch up with my own bus taxes, I hardly did any work, I feel like it was a wasted day (when I'm not working long hours) but with all the sad news I was out of energy, tomorrow I wil catch up. Donna, I will be praying for you 24/7 and so all you family from this Circle of Love. So let God do His Job, don't worry you are in good hands. I love you my sisters. Selva

Hello my dear Selva, I know you're always honest about praying, and I appreciate it my dear sister. God hears all prayers and knows our hearts!
I knew you must have stayed home today, because your pages, fwd.'s came from home and not work. And thank you for them! Oh my gosh, 2 friends passed away? Ay Selva that's so sad, I'm so sorry dear one. It's good to take a day off, so don't consider it wasted, you probably needed a rest. I know what you mean about the war, I watched a little bit today but it bothered me too much and I shut it off.
Yes, dear Donna, we'll all be praying for you and your family, we love you and know that God is holding on tight to you!
Much love to you dear Selva,
Love Sandy

All of my prayers go out to Shaner and all of the others out there who have lost a child. In 1994, I lost my 3 month old son to what they said at the time was SIDS. I now believe that it was a complication due to brittle bone disease that contributed to his passing. I now know he is in a better place than being here and in constant pain. Unfortunately, my then husband and I couldn't make it past this and we divorced in 1997. My son is in my heart and prayers daily, as all the others in the world who share our grief.

Hello aprilmc29 and welcome to the Circle. I'm so very sorry to read about your sweet baby son passing on. It had to be so painful and devastating for you. I'm also sorry about your marriage, experts say that a death of a child is very stressful on a marriage and a lot don't make it. Women and Men grieve so differently. Thank you for your prayers for me and all the other Moms, we truly appreciate them. Please post whenever you feel like it, we're not only a Prayer Circle but also a Support system for all. You'll also find compassion, love, understanding, as well as prayer here. May God bless you and keep you, we all know what it means to keep your child in your heart and prayers daily, and our's are with you. Love and prayers to you,
Luv Sandy

Hi Sandy, Verna, Debby, Eva, Yvonne, Lisa and all you Angel moms, I took off from work to work on taxes, so I have not rest, but guess what, today I wanted to go to my home so I could relax in the morning, because of our dogs I can not sleep past 6:30am, we have 3 dogs and all 2 of them wake up very early so they do not let me sleep. I sat on the garden, and asked Solange if she wanted me to go home today(to dream about her) to let me know, guess what, I have being trying to find my keys for the last 3 hours, and I can't. I have no idea what happened to it. So I decided to stay at my sister's tonight, first of all I have no keys. I got so upset that my sister told me, we will find it tomorrow. So I'm staying here tonight. ???.Please my sisters keep me in informed about Donna, I will be praying very hard for her. Love you all. Selva

Dear Selva, I'm glad you took the day off even though you didn't get done what you wanted, I too hate the journey you are going through but you said something that really sparkles Faith isn't a feeling its the absence of feeling and the willingness to pray and reach out like you do everyday, it is that Hope unseen unfelt that sparkles and through your misery you care for each one of us, you have such a beautiful heart and wether you can believe this right now a Faith that endures. Thankyou for the Love you have given to me and for your Faith. Love&BearHugs Donna

Dearest Angel Moms, We all seem to be on a journey different and yet the same, somedays for awhile it is spring and some the winter of longing but with all my heart I believe we will find our hearts desire in the warmth of God's grace and the fullfillment that our arms wil ache no more we will be forever free in the Light of Our Heavenly Fathers Smile.

Oh dear Selva, I pray you found your keys by now! Thank goodness you have your wonderful sister to help you. You're probably busy today with work, but don't overdue it! Donna's post to you is so nice - and true! You may think your faith is weak, but just look at how God is working through your big, loving heart to reach out to others in your own pain! God bless you dear one,
Love Sandy

Our dear Donna, I did have a good laugh this morning over something someone sent me, so I guess the Angels did tickle me, :). Thank you dear one for your prayer for me, it's beautiful and I truly appreciate it! And your inspirational post to all was very meaningful too. You just concentrate on yourself right now and your family, and know that we all love you and are praying hard for you to get you through this temporary storm. We're all going to miss you SO much while you're gone, you've left footprints on all of our hearts and we can't wait until you come back! Heavenly Father, please watch over Donna and her family, restore Donna's health, comfort her and her family as only You can, let her have a quick and easy recovery, and allow her to feel the love we all have for her. I ask this Father, through Your Son, Our Lord and Saviour Jesus, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever, Amen.

Hi Angel moms. I just finished working and now I'm just going to relax for whatever time I have left of the weekend, guess what. This morning we started to look for my keys all over the place and no luck, I went out to the yard to check on Solange's garden, my brother planted new flowers yesterday, and also some tomato plants in our veggie garden (i love fresh basil, oregano etc)and love tomatoes , I don;t know where you live but in Miami, its 1.95 a pound, that is why I decided to grown my own. While I was out in the yard, I remember, my mother, she was always losing her keys and my father used to complain about it all the time, so she used to call a little boy (in her imagination) that used to live in a little corner, so she will say ay little boy from the corner, hurry up and find my keys and I will drop a little water in your corner, and sure enough, she will find her keys within minutes, so today I said to my mom, please let me borrowed your little one from the corner to find my keys, I came inside the house and I went directly where I found my keys, isn't that amazing? and of course right away I drop water in a little corner, cuase you must comply with your promises like my mother used to say. I'm still amazed just like i would when my mother found her keys. I decided to stay at my sister today, is raining very hard, Solange never liked days like this, she could not go to the beach.Sandy you know my prayers are always with you, Verna, Eva, Yvonne and all you Angel Moms, but I want Donna to know that tomorrow she will be in my mind and heart and specially in my prayers. Love you all. Selva

Hello dear Selva, glad your mother helped to find your keys! The garden must be really coming along now, and so beautiful with all the flowers. Are the forget-me-nots coming up? I hope so! Oh, yum, yum Selva, there's nothing like a fresh tomato warm from the sun and picked off the vine, they're always better than store bought ones! I grow my own herbs too, basil, oregano, thyme, parsley, and sage. Love them fresh, and basil goes so well with tomatoes.
This morning there was a letter from Donna in my e-mail, I guess she wrote it late last night, unfortunately her hubby isn't very good with this sort of thing and Justin is too shy to talk to strangers, so she promises to let us all know how she's doing once she's able to. I have a very good feeling that things are going to be alright with her, Praise God! So we'll patiently wait, and keep Donna and all Angel Moms in our love and prayers.
Love Sandy

Hello my sister angelmoms...As I read the posts..I had such a deep conviction to type what I am feeling instead of just closing the site and go into my bathroom to cry..The last few weeks have been so hard..People at work talking of how they been working in the yard getting the ground ready for their flowers to plant and such.....when all I want to do is scream at them.....spring....summer...fall..winter....it's all the same to me right now.why should I care about your flower garden? don't tell me ...when just last week I had to go to my son's grave to clear the old flowers away from his grave....been there for nine months...so you can just imagine the looks of them...so here I am at his grave clearing it...and I realize....why??? why am I getting it ready to landscape it? why? when I should be landscaping around my home like everyone else..why is it that I am doing it at my son's grave? not right I say! it makes me mad as hell....people walking around and talking about their yard and their flowers....nooooo I want to my son....he brought me flowers..he told me I was his rose in a field of dried marigolds....why? why does God take sweet children like my son away from mothers who would literally hurt someone for making them cry or ashamed for who they are? why are their kids out there who don't care who they hurt? my son cared about everyone..he loved with his heart.I could see it in him everyday.I miss my Matthew..and I wished with everything in me that he was here for me to hold.times like this make me wonder what kind of world we live in. my heart is so heavyly burdened for the mothers who have lost a child in this war we're in...I pray everyday for them as well as I pray for us...God only knows how heavy my heart is...Though I do continue to thank him as well for my army daughter being able to not have to go...her 3 years was up in Jan...thought she still in is the national guard reserve..I pray that it won't come to her having to go.I have prayed about it..and I had to leave that with God....for my heart could'nt take anymore. I want to thank all for post of support for me as well..you know I love you all....In HIs Care I Struggle To Press On.....Eva

Hi my sister Eva. I understand so much what is going on within you, remember I lost my only daughter (20 years old) only seven months ago. Guess what, I have never visited her (place where she is in) do you know why? because I know she is living in Heaven with our Lord Jesus, there is nothing there in the cemetary, that is why I try to build a garden for her with the flowers she loved the most, sunflowers, and for all our Angel kids I try to plant flowers too with their favorites. Please my sister, we are going through the same pain, I miss my Solange so much I could die, the same way you miss your Mathew, but we have to think that they are all together in Heaven having a wonderulf time, God has promised that, and HE will always keep his promises. We will meet our kids again, of course we miss them, all I want to hear is Solange telling me Hi mom, I'm OK. And I keep praying to God to let me hear those words, but I think she is happy, Solange used to love life soooo much, she enjoyed every minute (sometimes I think that she knew it was not going to last) but now I think she does not need the new dress every weekend, the discho, the music, etc. Please my sister we are new at this, try to pray to God even if you don't feel like it, that is what I do, I believe that somehow He helps us with our pain. It is 24/7 but imagine, without Him we will be crazy. So I know He is helping us to survive. I'm here for you and so are all these wonderful Angel moms. Keep coming back and cry your heart out , we all do and we all understand. Love you my sister. Selva

Lord, I ask your help for all those who have been bereaved of their beloved child. I am a mother of one, and I know just how precious children are. I cannot imagine such a big loss. Lord, we trust in your wisdom and love. Help us to believe and trust in you. At the same time, we ask for your grace to live through each day.

DEAR SHANER,
WE MADE IT THROUGH EVERYTHING THIS WEEKEND. THE CHRISTENING WAS BEAUTIFUL. THE PARTY FOR MY OTHER NIECE WENT WELL TOO. I CAN'T WAIT TO GO BACK UP TO SEE THEM. THEY WILL BE DOWN IN SEPT. 7TH. FOR MY BROTHER WEDDING AND I CAN'T WAIT. I'M HOME TODAY FOR I AM SICK. I WENT TO THE DR'S AND I HAVE ANOTHER VIRAL INFECTION. THIS MAKES THE THIRD ONE SINCE I WENT BACK TO WORK AFTER THE CHRISTMAS BREAK. MY BROTHER CALLED MY SISTER (THE ONE WITH THE NEW BABY) ON FRIDAY TO LET HER KNOW THAT THEY WERE ALL SICK ALL WEEK SO SHE DIDN'T GO. WHICH TURNS OUT TO BE A WISE CHOICE SHE MADE. BUT WE WENT UP ANY WAYS AND ME AND MY MOM ARE SICK. BUT I TOLD MY BROTHER YESTURDAY THAT I WOULD DO IT ALL OVER AGAIN EVEN IF IT MENT ME GETTING SICK.
I HOPE ALL IS WELL AND I SEND MY LOVE AND PAYERS TO YOU.
