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 dear Sou, yes, I love that prayer, it's a very old one, and I think anyone could pray it, wow, it gave you goosebumps? I should clarify though that this is one of my favourite prayers, and any AngelMom who's in great pain right now understandably couldn't pray it, that wasn't my intention of posting it, all of you right now NEED consoling, understanding, support and love! So I don't want to offend anyone with the Prayer, when I was newly bereaved there was no way I could have ever prayed it!

Well, I braved our cold this morning, it's -24C here, not sure what that translates into Farenheit, just take my word for it, it's freezing out, :-) I had to go in for my yearly physical, and even though it's very cold here, the sun is shining, and that's always nice, grey days tend to bring me down.
How are your muscles today, my sister, did you go to the gym again last night?
If so, were you able to do a little more? See, you're an inspiration to me, what did my Dr. tell me to do? Get more exercise, she suggested more walking, or perhaps swimming, :-) so I'm going to call our local YMCA and see what they have to offer - I thought that I was doing enough walking already, but not according to her, :-)
How are you feeling today, other than your muscles, is the sun peeking through just a little?
salaam my dear sister,
Much love & Angel Hugs,
Sandy

Hi dear AngelMom Sharon, our prettybird, :-) I hope and pray that your Therapy session went well yesterday, and you are still having a good day today, please post and let us know how you are,
Love & Angel Hugs,

Salaam Sandy,

Don't worry your prayer is in no way offending. Of course some don't have the strenghth to pray such a passionate prayer but when we feel better we will come back and read it and pray it, too. So, thanks again for posting it!
Actually I did go to the gym yesterday but I just swam 4 laps and then went to the jaccuzi, we didn't stay long. My muscles are not sore for some strange reason, but I am happyt about that :o)
Other than that, I called my doc and my blood works and ultrasounds came back fine, so I don't need surgery, which means I can go to Germany soon! YEAAAAHHH!!!!

Wow, -24C is veeeery cold, I don't know it in Fahrenheit either. I don't think I have ever been in such cold weather and honestly I don't envy you :o)

After living in Germany all my life, I am happy with South Floridian weather!

By the way, did anybody hear from Selva, is she still in the hospital? As far as I remember she's in Miami (my memory is just a mess currently). I was wondering if I should pay her a surprise visit?? I need to ask Nancy how long she's staying in the clinic.

Sharon, I hope your therapy went well, although I went only once, I feel much better already, I pray it had the same effect on you.

Ok, more news from me, our company is going to close in about a month. The funny thing is that I was thinking to get into the Real Estate Industry for quiete a while but I was too scared to leave my job, well, God Almighty gave me the answer :o) As soon as I am back from Germany I will get my license and start! I canít wait to meet people and get around, I have been stuck in the office for two years and itís kinda depressing.

I pray to God that He will heal all of us and one day we will be able to enjoy life again, although it will never be the same.

Love,
Sou

Dear Angelmoms and dads,

I found this on a homepage and I thought it might help you.

****************************

Am I Grieving Normally?
People often ask three questions when going through grief:
ďAm I normal?Ē ďAm I going crazy?Ē ďWill I ever get over this?Ē
A better question is whether your grief is healthy. There is, of course, no one right way to grieve. Many of the strangest emotions and thoughts are actually quite normal. But even people who grieve in a healthy manner may have times when they are overwhelmed by their grief.
The following checklist may help you figure out how you are doing. As time goes on, you will find you are answering yes to more and more questions. But if you are not satisfied with how you are doing, please seek help.
Am I able to laugh without feeling guilty?
Do I pay attention to my personal appearance - hair, clothes, make-up?
Do I enjoy being out with friends for an evening?
Am I feeling pleasure in sexual experiences?
Am I able to sit quietly by myself and think of things other than the loss?
Do I take an interest in current events and news - television, or radio news, newspaper?
Do I feel I can effectively parent my surviving children?
Am I able to do the daily tasks Iím used to performing - yard work, housework, cooking, household maintenance?
Do I look forward to outings, trips, special events?
Am I involved with activities that I participated in before the loss - church work, volunteer work, clubs, sports teams, a job?
Can I talk about the loss without showing strong emotion - sadness, anger, jealousy?
Do I feel like the fog has lifted?
Do I pay attention to my surroundings - beautiful scenery, the taste of food, the smell of perfume?
Am I able to get a good nightís sleep and awaken felling rested?
Am I able to concentrate on work and conversation?
Am I less forgetful and able to think clearly?
Can I recall past events?
Do I feel stronger and more in control - less like an open wound, better able to cope with othersí comments, better able to cope with everyday crises?
Am I able to deal with everyday life without feeling panicked, frantic, or worried? (Events like a minor injury to a child, someone arriving late, travel.)
Have I maintained my general health with no unusual weight gains or losses?
Have I kept scheduled appointments for checkups with my dentist, optometrist, and physician?
Do I feel that there is meaning to my life?
Can I look back at what happened and feel that some thing good came out of the tragedy?

Hi dear AngelMom Sou, thanks for the reassurance, I was worried after I posted the Prayer that I may have given some AngelMoms and Dads the wrong impression, and I would never want to do something that would hurt them further. YES, I pray for the day when everyone is a little stronger and can say it themselves.
So you did go to the Gym, did some swimming, and then the Jacuzzi - they're so relaxing, aren't they! Hey, that's terrific that your muscles aren't sore or aching, good for you!!
Ha, ha, well, living in Canada we get used to the cold weather, but it doesn't mean I like it, :-) Counting the days until Spring! Oh lucky you and our sister Selva, living in sunny Florida, yeppers, she lives in Miami, is that where you live also? I wrote her sister Nancy inquiring about her, and I'll let everyone know when Nancy writes me back.
OH, my dear sister!! That's such good news, Praise God, I'm very happy for you that you don't require surgery!! Yes, now you can go visit your family in Germany, you must be so excited!! Hurray for you dear AngelMom, things are starting to look better for you!
We'll miss you, you're so much a part of this family, but I'm being selfish, I know you'll have lots to tell us when you return!
And even more good news for you, now that your Company is closing, you can pursue your dream of becoming a Realtor, one of my own sister's is one, she worked in a Bank for years and then decided to switch, got her license, and is so happy with the work, just as I know you'll be, you do get to meet a lot of people, you help them find their 'dream home', and that's very exciting and gratifying work! Oh, my dear sister Sou, I know you're still struggling a bit, but I am so happy for all your good news, :-) God is pouring down His blessings upon you!
Actually you could write Nancy yourself if you wish, her addy is nadpa100@aol.com
And please let us know when you're going to Germany, your family is going to be very excited to see you again too!!
salaam my dear sister,
Much love & Angel Hugs,
Sandy

I am new to this site. Our family lost our beautiful baby, Maialily Channah, about 21/2 years ago. Thank G-d we had another child, (now we have two), as it gave us a reason to keep on living. It was so much pain. Our friends couldn't handle it, were scared of it, or didn't understand. Gradually thing have gotten better. I began to have moments when the intense pain would break up a bit. Then I had some better days. After this new baby was born,(7/2/03), I experienced joy again. I still really miss Maialily. It pains my heart that she and her brother and new sister can't be together. But I am so grateful to have another child. THough I am having a very hard time with G-d write now, I am trying to pray that G-d keeps my family healthy and safe. I plan to be signing in to this circle a lot, as I think it will be good for me, and might even give me the opportunity to help someone else. My love and prayers go out to all. Thank you

Hello mommiejules, a very big, warm welcome to the Circle, your Circle too, I'm just very sorry for the reason you're here. What a beautiful name for your baby, your sweet little precious one. How old was she when she passed?
I know, dear AngelMom, there is no pain worse than for a Parent to lose a child.
Losing some friends over it is very normal also, they can't understand our incredible grief, they don't know how to help us, and sometimes they feel powerless that they can't. I lost some friends when our Shane passed, on top of my grief it hurt also, just as it's probably hurt you, but I now understand that they have no conceivable idea how deep our grief and pain is, thankfully it's never happened to them. That's wonderful that you were blessed with another child after you lost Maialily, it did help to lessen your pain as you say, and now you have been blessed with two, I'm so happy for you, but I know that your precious Maialily will always be your first born, and hold a special place in your heart. No, your other 2 children may not have Maialily physically in their lives, but by you talking to them about her, about their big sister, they'll grow up knowing her, with you keeping her memory alive. Ah, I know my sister, many Moms, Dads have their faith shaken when they lose a beloved child, or get very angry at God, but He understands this, and grieves along with you. Keep praying and our prayers will be with you also, as well as our love, understanding, support, and compassion. There is never any judging here, you can safely post from your heart and be honoured for your feelings, emotions. I really hope you do sign in here a lot, this is your Circle too, you Post as many times a day as you want to! And yes, it'll give you the opportunity of helping another Mom or Dad in their grief, while you're being supported yourself.
shalom dear AngelMom, look forward to hearing more from you,
Love, Prayers and Angel Hugs,
Sandy

Hi Sandy,
Many thanks for your reply and support. To let you, (and others), know me a bit about us... Maialily was 4 months and 22 days old when she died. I have gone over that last day, and days a million or more days. WHAT DID I MISS? An especially troubling question as my husband and I are both doctors. The last few weeks we had her I was off of work, so I should have noticed something. But she had no changes that would have hinted that anything was wrong: she was playful, nursing well, not fussy, nothing was amiss. We had a lovely day at my best friends wedding. She died next to my husband and I in her sleep that night. I suppose their is gratitude knowing she died peacefully next to the people that love her most. But it is hard to hold on to that when I really want to have her in my arms, have her here, see her with her brother and sister, growing up. Her third birthday just past.
Maialily's older brother is Levi, he is 4 1/2 years old. A wonderful, energetic boy who brings us great happiness. Our youngest is 6 months old, her name is Daisy. Strangely enough, with as much happiness as I feel with the other children, I feel lucky. I do have my really low points, but joy has come back with this new baby. Thank G-d.
I'll be in touch,
Many thanks
Juliet

Dear Juliet,

Welcome to our circle, I wish you wouldnít have to be here. I am sorry for the loss of Maialily (what a sweet name!). I lost my baby girl too, but the difference between us is that I lost her at only 22 weeks into pregnancy, so I never had the chance to be with her outside my womb. I miss her terribly and we all understand how you feel. SIDS comes without any indications, they babies pass during their sleep, I heard they just forget to breathe. But since you are a doctor I donít need to tell you this, and deep in your heart you know there is nothing you could have done.

I am already panicking that if I ever have a baby again (Sarah was my firstborn) which makes it full term and stays alive, I wonít be able to sleep but making sure that she is breathing. Almost every day I am trying to set up a schedule so that sheís Ďunder observationí 24/7. I am making plans how family members take over while others get some sleep and I am worried that they wonít stay with me the whole two years until the danger of SIDS is gone, itís ridiculous I know but in our grief we think the strangest things!

When I am back at my normal stage of thinking, I realize that my plans donít make any sense, because at the end, if God wants to take her, he takes her. When her day comes, thatís it, I canít fight God even if I did everything possible to keep her.

Iím glad that your newborn and Levi bring you happiness, hopefully one day you will come at complete peace. Keep in mind that Maialily is at a better place and a pure angel.

I hope that God brings you healing.

Salaam, Shalom, Peace.

Love
Sou

Salaam Sister Sandy,

Today is a little bit not so good (what an expression!). I had a call with the insurance again and my voice started skipping and I miss herÖ. Well, what can I do. Itís almost Sunday, so can go to see my baby and inhale her spirit.
I spoke to my therapist and we decided to start a local support group for parents who lost children, so hopefully weíll be successful and help a lot of other parents, God willing.

I canít wait to see my family, my husband and I will be going to Morocco and France and then I will stay with my family for a few weeks and fly back to the US after my husband. He has only 3 weeks off and needs to rush back to work :o) When I am home in Germany I will definitely sign on here and keep writing, I just donít know about Morocco, probably I would have to go to an internet cafť to have computer access, if I find one I will stop by here and say hi, God willing.

How are you doing? I hope all is well with you today? When are you going to start swimming? Probably Iíll be going to the gym tonight again.

Dear Lisa, we havenít heard from you for a while. I hope you are doing ok. Probably you have having some valley days, I pray that God will lift the clouds for you and give you peace.

Dear Sharon, I hope you are making it through the days also. Let us know when you are ready.

God bless you all
Love
Sou

Hello my Sister Angelmoms...It's been awhile since my last post..I come here often to keep posted on prayers and "updates"...Not much to post. I pray everyday for us. Only God knows our pain. I come to day to ask that you all be in prayer for my husband Ron and I..We are being faced with the difficult decision of taking our neice April into our home to raise. She is the daughter of my husbands brother. who is in prison...and His wife is facing prison .her court date is the 20th of this month.We don't think the outcome will be good. Leaving the burden on our door of taking in this child..she is 15..I have my reasons for not wanting her in my home...About two months before Matthew was killed in the car wreck...we as a family(Ron,Myself and our son) sat down and had a meeting about taking April into our home while her parents "straightened up" We had many doubts...because of the way April had been raised. She was and still is on drugs..a very promiscuious girl..Matthew knowing this did not want her living with us....he felt it would be a bad idea. Knowing in all our minds that only bad things follow this child and her family. We explained to Matthew that it would be for a short time only. We all agreed. He introduced her to all his friends at school, church. and best friend..I won't go into the long story of how our life I thought was being blessed simply by the love we had for this child.and how I felt God was instumental in her coming to us the way she had.....To make a very long story short.....I will simply say..that April had a part in our son being killed ....I know she was only a child at the time...and still is...But my sisters I cannot face her...I'm afraid of what will happen if we take her in again.I feel like I'm betraying Matthew.I feel like I'm trading my son for their daughter. I don't want their daughter I want my son!I can't see her and not see my son who begged us not to let her stay with us. I have been asked to pray about this and I have..God has not givin me an answer , I feel...for I have no peace about this.My daughters I feel would not understand if I took April back in. For they feel April was a part of Matthew's accident.Lord God I don't know what to do..Please pray for us ,that this cup will be passed from Ron and I.My heart is torn....I love you all......
In His Care I Press On....Eva

Hello dear Juliet, I'm so happy you posted back and told us about yourself and what you're going through right now.
And I too should do the same, :-) My husband and myself have 2 boys, Shane, who is now in Heaven, and Chris, who is 2 yrs. older than Shane and is a Computer Programmer in Software/Hardware, and lives and works in another city. We do see him often though, we talk by e-mail during the week, and he calls home every Sunday. Our Shane passed away very suddenly, from a rare heart condition, you're probably familiar with this, his heart went into 'spasms' and then atrial defibrilization, apparently it affects young, healthy children, adults, and is just one of those 'freak' things that happens. He was 24 at the time, single, and still lived at home. That was close to 5 years ago now, I can tell you that the searing pain we all experience when we lose one of our children DOES go away, it's not with us 24/7 anymore, but even those of us further along the 'Journey' as I call it, still experience painful moments, sad days, thankfully they don't last as long as they used to, and once again we can enjoy life, just in a different way. Your little Maialily was still very much a newborn when she passed, that's so sad, dear one. Even though you and your husband are Doctors, you're experiencing from your heart and love right now, all of us go through some sort of guilt phase and perhaps because you're both Doctors, your feelings are compounded because of that fact. You know in your mind that you did nothing wrong, that there were no signs you could have picked up on, I understand completely how you have second-guessed yourself, but she sounds as though she was a healthy, happy baby, who I assume passed away from SIDS? and you know there's nothing you or your husband could have done to prevent that, I pray with all the Research that's being done on this terrible sudden loss, that they come closer to discovering the reason why this happens to healthy babies like your precious Miailily, so that other Parents never have to go through this! Hopefully you know this is a very normal part of grieving, and I hope you pass through this particular phase very soon. She did die peacefully, surrounded by her loving Parents, but no one would blame you in anyway, that right now it's difficult to be grateful for that. I know you would trade that in a heartbeat to only have her back in your arms again, gaze with such love upon her little face, see her little smile again and have your family 'whole' again, seeing her with Levi and Daisy. It's so painful, isn't it. I'm sorry Juliet, I must have misread your first Post, I thought Miailily was your firstborn, but Levi is, I know still though, that there is a very special place reserved in your heart for your precious little one. I'm so very happy for you that you have Levi and little Daisy (another cute name!) that bring so much happiness into your life, but I also do understand how you still experience low points in your life over losing your pmost precious Miailily. My heart, love and prayers are with you my dear sister of the heart, all of our losses are individual to ourselves, but we're united by them also, only we who have lost a child truly understand how it changes your life and all the different emotions, feelings that we all seem to experience, unique to losing a beloved child. Please post back again, there is strength in numbers, and together we can support and love each other through the tough times. Perhaps there's something you could share here too, it could be a Prayer that's comforting to you, a Poem, etc., this is your Circle and I want you to feel at home here,
shalom,
Love, Prayers & Angel Hugs,
Sandy

Hello my dear sister Sou, oh no, not another call from the Ins. Co., of course that would be very upsetting, and set you back some, hopefully they're done calling you, and upsetting you further! Yes, dear one, soon it'll be Sunday and you can once again have your special visit with your little Sarah, I know how much you look so forward to it, and the very special meaning it has to you in your heart!
I think that's a wonderful idea AngelMom Sou, together with your Therapist starting a Support Group, your Posting here to other Moms and Angelo are always filled with your warm, big heart, so I know that you'll be a big Blessing to those who join the Group, once it's formed! And you yourself will benefit from the Group too. Bravo to you my sister, it IS a wonderful idea! I can feel your excitement through your Post, :-) I know how happy you'll be to see your family once again, and how happy they must be knowing that you're coming to visit! You're also going to Morocco and France? Hm, could I go to Morocco with you and your husband - I've had friends go there and they tell me how beautiful it is. I'm just teasing you, :-) If your husband unfortunately can only take 3 weeks off, well, you can have a terrific visit with your family, and they with you, and I'm sure you'll be phoning home during that time, :-) OH, that's wonderful, you'll still be able to post and say hello, that way we won't miss you as badly, and if you do find an Internet Cafe, you can tell us how wonderful Morocco is, if i can't go there myself, you can tell me what I'm missing, ((-: but more importantly how you and your husband are doing! Hurray for that!
I'm fine today, cold as ever here, yes, I have an appointment this evening to go and meet a trainer at the YMCA and see exactly what they have to offer, so I just may be swimming myself tomorrow too. You're going to the Gym tonight too, good for you, you have a lot of willpower, and are sticking with your swimming, etc., have another jacuzzi treatment, they're so relaxing, sometimes I'm very reluctant to get out of them, :-) I'm sorry you had a rough time this morning, things like that out of the blue can be so painful, God bless you, I pray it doesn't set you back too much, and that as I said, is the LAST call from them, God willing. You still sound so much better than you did last week, and I'm very happy for you, have a beautiful visit with your little Pearl, and keep thinking of your upcoming travels and visit, how exciting it will be for you! My sister-in-law is coming up to visit with us tomorrow, so we're very happy about that and look forward to seeing her again, she just got back from the Dominican Republic, so she's probably very tanned and kind of sorry she had to leave and come back to the cold weather, :-) Have a terrific weekend, do you have a computer at home? I haven't heard anymore about our sister Selva, but when I do, I'll let everybody know,
salaam my dear sister,
Much love & lots of Angel Hugs,
Sandy

Hi Dear Sandy,

Yes, the insurance people really donít get it. I wrote them letters and talked to them many times, even my employer called them once because I just couldnít but they still donít get the message. I hope I will be done with this soon.

You know what? Itís not a problem at all if you want to come with us. My husbandís family have a big house there, so itís no big deal at all. We are going to do the tourist things besides seeing our families. I have some very old aunties and uncles that I havenít seen in 7 years and two of them have already passed on, I would like to spend a few days with them, too. If you have the time, it would be great to take you and your husband, man, I would love to meet you in person!

Yes I have a computer at home but unfortunately no time when I come back from work. I usually fix a little snack dinner or so and by the time we are done with dinner and cleaning up the stuff and do our prayers, itís almost bedtime! Actually I am happy that I can make dinner again, not too long ago I was not capable of even peeling potatoes, I just couldnít figure out how to start, it was too much to handle! Now I can get everything together but once itís on the stove I forget about it, yesterday I burnt it :o). I guess there is a reason they have take out!! And plus I am on another internet group for the condition I have, the reason I lost Sarah (Incompetent Cervix). The ladies there have almost all lost one or more babies and when they were diagnosed they got their cervix stitched at 14 Ė 16 weeks into pregnancy and stayed in bed for the remaining 5 Ė 6 months and delivered a full term baby. So I get some confidence and hope from their stories too and I hope that next time we will have a better outcome.

I am starting to get worried about our dear sister Selva. I will email Nancy and see if she has any news. I hope all is well with her and I hope her accident has some kind of good side, too. Hopefully she will appreciate life more, now that she was at the edge. I understand though if she doesnítÖ. I guess sometimes we all wish we could be with our children again.

Ok, I am starting to pack up here, I wish you all a good weekend!

Love
Sou

I am starting to get worried about our dear sister Selva. I will email Nancy and see if she has any news. I hope all is well with her and I hope her accident has some kind of good side, too. Hopefully she will appreciate life more, now that she was at the edge. I understand though if she doesnítÖ. I guess sometimes we all wish we could be with our children again.

Ok, I am starting to pack up here, I wish you all a good weekend!

Love
Sou

Hello dear Eva, it's so nice to see you Posting again, but you're certainly in a very delicate dilemna right now, caught up with your feelings over family duties, and your feelings and your family's feelings over taking in your niece April, who definitely does need someone to look after her right now, it has to be very hard on her knowing that both her Parents are going to Prison, God be with her. I think I can safely say that your dear Matthew, now in Heaven, would not harbor any negative feelings towards his Cousin anymore, but what's important now dear one is your feeling's and those of your family's. Is there not someone else in the Family who could take April in right now, and give her the love and support she needs? I think that would be the best solution all around, if you did take April in right now, you can't help feeling the way you do towards her, and she will definitely 'pick-up' on your feelings and those of Ron and your daughter's, keep praying over it dear AngelMom Eva, I don't know, maybe this IS something that God is presenting to you to do, but that's just a guess on my part, the best advice I can give is to follow your own heart, and stay true to your feelings right now until you're in a better place with your grieving. You know you're in our hearts and prayers, and we'll pray for the best solution for all, may Our Lord wrap you all and April in His loving arms, and give you peace, ......keep pressing on, perhaps someone else will have some advice for you also,
Much love & Tender Hugs,
Sandy

Dear MyPearlie, I haven't forgotten what today is, your precious daughter's Birthday, the first one for you to experience without her being here. I know how difficult these 'special days' are on us all, and you're still so fresh in your own grief, I can just imagine how painful it must be for you.
Did you find a way to mark her Birthday, letting balloons go, etc., sometimes doing something tangible helps us on these very difficult days.
Love, prayers & Angel Hugs,
Sandy

Hi Dear Sandy,

Yes, the insurance people really donít get it. I wrote them letters and talked to them many times, even my employer called them once because I just couldnít but they still donít get the message. I hope I will be done with this soon.

You know what? Itís not a problem at all if you want to come with us. My husbandís family have a big house there, so itís no big deal at all. We are going to do the tourist things besides seeing our families. I have some very old aunties and uncles that I havenít seen in 7 years and two of them have already passed on, I would like to spend a few days with them, too. If you have the time, it would be great to take you and your husband, man, I would love to meet you in person!

Yes I have a computer at home but unfortunately no time when I come back from work. I usually fix a little snack dinner or so and by the time we are done with dinner and cleaning up the stuff and do our prayers, itís almost bedtime! Actually I am happy that I can make dinner again, not too long ago I was not capable of even peeling potatoes, I just couldnít figure out how to start, it was too much to handle! Now I can get everything together but once itís on the stove I forget about it, yesterday I burnt it :o). I guess there is a reason they have take out!! And plus I am on another internet group for the condition I have, the reason I lost Sarah (Incompetent Cervix). The ladies there have almost all lost one or more babies and when they were diagnosed they got their cervix stitched at 14 Ė 16 weeks into pregnancy and stayed in bed for the remaining 5 Ė 6 months and delivered a full term baby. So I get some confidence and hope from their stories too and I hope that next time we will have a better outcome.
