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.

I thank God for you everyday, Sandy, and the other angel sisters I have come to know from the circle of LOVE. You all always have just the right things to say. (and I love the emails you send me, they make my day when everything else seems to be falling apart)
Welcome patpruitt and all other new members. As Sandy said, we are all part of a club that none of us wanted to EVER belong to, and we pray daily that no one else ever has to know our pain. But if God willing, they learn about our pain, this is a SAFE and LOVING place to come and share your feelings. There is NO judgement here, just lots of LOVE and (((HUGS))).
Hello all my Angel Mom sisters (and Angel Dad brothers)!!!!! I am here today asking for help first, because my Marcus's Angel Day is coming fast (Feb 20). I can't believe it will be four years, seems like just yesterday, and it is all still so vivid. That and with my beloved Melanie still just about two weeks out from her Angel, Becca, getting her wings, it is a compounded time of grief for me. As fresh as her pain is, she is still an Angel herself, as unfortunately now, she can relate to my pain, and she supports me as well. I would have traded places with Becca to have kept her from going through this, but as we all know, we can't do that, we just have to give as much LOVE and SUPPORT that we, ourselves can.
(I started a memorial for Becca, you'll find it under Goates (Ward) as well as my Angel's under Dickens, Marcus) I started the memorial for Mel, but I wanted her to edit it whenever she is strong enough and feels like she can. Mel also has a memorial posted at Tagworld for Rebecca Kaylin "Becca" Goates.
Okay, the other reason I am here, I realize now, that I have let all of those feelings that I had surpressed and "bottled up" rip away at my marriage. All of the pain and anger and grief, I WAS taking it out on my husband and did not consciously realize it. Within a two year period, we buried our son, his grandmother, and his father, so needless to say, all things considered, our marriage has had some obstacles thrown our way. I do not want to lose my marriage, we have both already lost so much. I talk to God daily, and pray for strength to be a better wife, and pray that God will talk to my husband's heart so that he can find a way to forgive me. My blessing may be that God has not answered that prayer, but please, pray that God's will be done for me. (and hopefully before I have a nervous breakdown!! LOL!)
Well, I have got to get some things done, but I couldn't without coming here first. I pray for everyone who comes to the circle, and for those who are still out there lost, that somehow God will help them find some kind of peace.

First I would like to welcome all new angel moms and say how sad it is that we must meet this way.Only us angel moms and dads and the lord above knows the pain and grief we carry in our hearts.I prey for each one of you that God will carry you through the vally till you can reach the top of the mountian.

Hey Selva, Sorry to hear you are in such long and hard vally days. My heart felt prayers are with you.When I first started comeing here to this circle I never lit a candle at all unless it was to make my house smell good but just recently I have started liteing a candle everyday for all of our angel babies. I have a circle of pictures of all my children including Amiee and in the middle of all them sits my candel burning in loveing memorey of all. I think I'm driveing my husband crazy buying up all these candels.I wish I had a picture of all our angels to put around my candel then my circle would be complete. Hang in there sis GOD is sure to pull you through this valley time. I LOVE YOU AND SO DOES GOD!

Miss V, hate to read you are in the hospital and praying your test come back ok. You will be in my prayers as always. Havent come here in awhile, with so many things going on right now, but will get into that later in my post. My GOD touch your body and heal it Verna. I will put you on our prayer list at church tonight for healing.I LOVE YOU ALSO!!!!!!!

My dear sweet friend, sister in christ, and chief angelmom,It has been awhile but you to have been on my mind. Gla to read there are no major problems going on for you right now. If they are and I missed reading it I am praying for you too.I do miss comeing herebut life is keeping me busy. So much has been going on.

Finally had my computer worked on and it is running wonderfully now. Cost to much money but oh well it's back and better than before.

I would like to ask for prayer for our family,have had a dealth and have taken this really hard. My sister in law delivered a little girl two weeks ago at 22 weeks into her pregnancie and she was born dead. When my mother in law called us early in the morning to tell me I thought I would pass out. This is the first time in almost 13 years I have had to deal with the dealth of a baby. Oh how I cried for her! My heart was just hurting and aching so bad. All I could do was walk around in my kitchen in circles and cry. I did'nt relize it would effect me like that. I felt my sister in laws pain and my brother in law. I just wanted to reach out and take her pain from her. She does have 2 other children but really wants a third one. She has taken this really hard as we all can understand. That baby was perfect in everyway and was so beautiful. She looked like a little babydoll. She didnt even look real. Oh, her tiny little hands and fingers and such a beautiful head of hair. I didnt think Kim was going to let her go.
Just pray for our family.

Then I had to take my daughter to the hospital Tuesday morning for another EEG. The last one she had in October came back Negative so they done another one. If this one comes back negative then they will do 2 more EEG's and if they come back negative then they are going to take her off of her meds. That is what I am praying for. But then on Monday I took my 2 boys fot a checkup and my 8 year old son has to go on a diet. This will be really hard for him bc he is just a child. His doc said he is obesse, not just overweight. He weighs 138 . My 13 year old daughter only weights 121 so you see he is pretty heavey. Just pray for me I will have the strenght to make him stick to this diet. It's hard bc children will be children. He is active bc he plays football and baseball and rides his bike alot. Evenn in the cold wealther. If this diet don't help him lose weight like it should than they are going to test this thyroids.the only thing is, is obecity runs in my husbands family on his mothers side. He isnt obece but several of his Aunts are and his sister is.

I love you all and always keep you in my prayers.
Amiee's mom

I try to be strong for my daughters.Please pray for me and my girls.I know Buddy is in a better place,but I miss him so bad.I know some day we will be together again,but it is so hard here without him.

2/11/2006 12:46

Dear preciousmemories: I will keep you, Buddy and your daughters in my prayers. My Krissy was 20 when she died, in March, 2001. I too miss her every single day and I'm sure that that will never change. We just learn to live with it somehow, and yes, we will be with them again soon. Staying strong for your daughters is all you can do. Krissy has a younger sister too, now 23, who is going to have a baby, so as I hurt for the life lost, I thank god for the new life we are about to be blessed with. Take care, and "may you be in the company of angels" always.

2/12/2006 11:03

Thank you all for your prayers,I'm feeling a little down today,I get that way on week-ends because Buddy went home to be with the Lord on a Sat.You know the hole time he was sick he never once asked(Mom why is this happening to me)He was the type of person that thought of everyone else before himself.I live in Ky, but he lived in Ind,but I stayed all of 2003 in Ind. with him.He called me in June 2004 and asked if I could come stay a month with him, I told him I would stay with him as long as I had to. If I hadn't been there with him when the Lord took him home, I know I could have never forgave myself.What gets me the most after he went into a short coma the nurse told us to keep talking to him that he could still hear us "I told him mommy did everything I could for him and that I loved him very much" A tear rolled down his cheek, I will aways see that in my mind because I know he heard me.

2/12/2006 19:09

Hi our dear preciousmemories, yes Thank God you got to be your precious son until the end, and yes I think they listened to us, when my Solange was in ICU I got to hold her hand and I told her how much I love her, I told her Mom is here for you and I love you so very very much, she did not respond but I hope that she did hear me, yes it is so devastating for us , but right now they are smiling at us, they received that love that only God can provide, they are happy in His presence, and when our time comes, we will be there with them, and yes my dear sister, this time FOREVER, we will be reunited with our children again, and we will live with them again and forever. Yes weekends are hard and every day is hard, but we have so many prayers from all of our dear Angel moms, and our Angel Kids are smiling on us, keep pressing on , that is what we have to do every day of our life, and the kids are really really great, they are with God and with our time comes we will be with them again and this time forever. Love Selva

2/12/2006 22:03

Hello Angel Moms,
I am posting to let everyone know that my mom, Miss V. is now out of intensive care and in a regular room!
We visit with her daily. Today after church, James, Steven and I went to visit her and found her sitting up attempting to eat some soup! She is so pleased to read the "printed-out" emails from each of you. So keep them comming!

She said that whenever she is alone in the hospital and feels a little low, she gets the folder containing your emails, that I took her and she reads them and reminds herself that there are people out there praying for her and that loves her and it helps her to stay calm and rest as she gains strength in her recovery!

So Thank You all for the kindness you have extended to my mother. You bring comfort to her in ways that only you can. You understand her at levels that only other mom's who have lost a child can.

My mother is so very precious to me... please continue to pray for her and prayerfully, we will all look back on this one day and smile at the "Awsomeness of God" and the power that only prayer can cause to manifest.

May God Bless each of you!

And again ...THANK YOU!
