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.

To all,

I think I'm getting around the new B'net pretty good. However, when I think I finally know how to get somewhere, it gets changed a little. My problem was that I had this page as my favorite. So when I clicked on it, I was brought to the old B'Net. Now I deleted the old site and put this one into it, since unless it is listed on the first page, it's the hardest to get to. Hopefully, that will work!

I have no further update with the baby. Probably will talk with Cindy later. I am not feeling well and saw my dr yesterday. He ordered me not to work until Tuesday. I don't mind having the days off, however, my paycheck will suffer since I don't get sick pay. I'm not worried because I have seen the Lord provide for me so many times. He's the One with the good track record so I know I can trust Him to supply what is lacking. We have such an awesome God! Love and gratitude to all, Jane

Thank you all for the prayers and thoughtfulness. I went to his grave and but a balloon and flowers there. When I got out of the car and went to his grave I told him Happy Birthday and that I loved him and the rain just started to pour down just like the tears.I am waiting on blood tests to see if I have rhuemtord arthritist or lopus if it isn't either one then I go for more tests, so that is why I haven't been here lately but you are all in my prayers and I think about you all all the time. I will keep you posted on my testing and Love You All Lee Ann

10/19/2007 15:35

Dear Lee Ann. Just to let you know that I am also praying for you today, may God give you strenght and may you feel Ryan's presence very close to you today. My love and prayers. Selva

My dear Angel sisters. I have a prayer request for a very dear friend his name is Jeff, he has heart problems since he lost his only son, Dan 7 years ago, he is a cardiologist and knows of the risks and pains of heart surgery, and now he might have to go through surgery himself, Jeff and his wife Cathy are wonderful human beings who know of the pain of loosing a child and have dedicated their suffering to help other, they sponsor Tibetan orphans in India, and are doing a great job with their Foundation to raise help for this orphans. Please join me in prayers for Jeff so that his heart can heal and that he might continue to help those little children and others in such a great way. Thank you my dear sisters. My love and prayers. Selva

Dear Lee Ann,

I am so sorry you are feeling so ill. I will be praying for those tests you are taking. I have Lupus and should inform you that it is very hard to diagnos because the tests aren't always accurate. That test shows a certain antibody's activity. Right off hand I can't remember the name of the antibody. Anyway the test will come back negative if that antibody isn't active. Since Lupus is a chronic illness and often goes into remission the antibody isn't always active. I read somewhere that it can take 7-15 yrs to correctly give the diagnosis of Lupus. RA is different, it can be diagnosed by one test. It is also the one to really pray against. My suggestion is after all the tests are finished and nothing shows up, assume it is Lupus. It is important to get on medication immediately because it lessens the flareups and its severity. I'm in a flareup right now. Before the medication I would miss weeks of work. Now I have 5 days off, only 2 I was scheduled for. Also wanted to let you know that for the most part you can live a normal life with Lupus. Love and hugs (lots of them), Jane

Hi Everyone,

Selva, Dr Jeff is in my prayers. I do pray that he does get himself checked out. How wonderful that he chose to create something new and good out of his own loss.

An update on the baby is status quo which is very good! I love it when many people are praying for something supernatural and God choses to answer in such a wonderful way. We don't often see or hear of God working in such a way in our western world.

As for Taylor, please keep lifting her up. I truely believe that God will answer this little girl's request to be baptised before she enters heaven. Love and gratitude to all, Jane

my dear angel sisters, I am asking for all of your prayers, My son Lawrence wa killed in an autombile accident on september6, 2007. His automobile hydroplaned and he never completely regain consciousness. He lived for 2 days after the accident but died from brain injury. Please keep me in your pryers and I will be praying for you thanks so ver much

Dear Marie,

I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. It's always with much sadness that we welcome new people to our circle. We know the incredible pain you are in. Please be assured that this is a safe place to post about Lawrence and your feelings. You will find no judgements here and you won't hear you should be over it. We all know differently. Many times a newly bereaved mom feels like she isn't normal, according to the world's standards. We know there isn't such a thing called normal. Everyone goes through the grief process differently. The one thing we can't do is to walk in your shoes, but we can empathize, support, and love you. You will definately be in our prayers. I hope you will feel free to post anytime. Love, Jane

10/20/2007 09:18

Hi my dear sister,
Yes, you know my prayers are with Jeff and Cathy for this present trial, may God in His love and goodness heal Jeff without having to undergo surgery and may He quiet their anxieties over this.
I know, they're another great example of giving back out of their own pain,
Much love & Angel Hugs,

10/20/2007 09:27

Dear Lee Ann and Jane,
So sorry to read that you're both not feeling very well, Jane, please take it easy and rest up.
Lee Ann, I pray that you receive the correct diagnosis and can start on a regimine prescribed by your Dr., the sooner the better for you,
Much love & {{Hugs}} to you both,

10/20/2007 09:40

Hello dear Marie,
I also welcome you with open arms to this Circle of love, support, understanding and prayers. Your loss is so recent, I know you have to be in that raw, biting, 24/7 pain right now, God love you. I pray you have supportive people around you right now, you definitely have them here, at this Circle. Talking about your grief and Lawrence is one of the best things you can do for yourself right now, so I too hope you'll post here again,
Love & Angel Hugs,

10/20/2007 10:05

Hello dear Marie,
I'm glad you posted again, :). My son Shane was also 24 when he passed and the youngest of my two son's. I know how badly your heart is aching, we all do. Keep leaning heavily on God and keep letting your grief out, I'm sure I cried an Ocean of tears but I also know God held me when I couldn't stand, He'll do the same for you,
Love, Prayers & {{Hugs}}

Dears: Me and my wife come from a similar experience, 13 years ago, our little Guillermo 16 yrs old...Really, life events like this are initially hard to accept. What I could say now: Keep in mind that physical separation from our loved ones is temporary. Our heart-to-heart connections are forever...Everyone of us has a mission in life. Your beloved son had also his own... Now he is happy, embraced by The Light... We will follow him...God bless you and keep you going. Oldguille

Hi Everyone,
I hope this posts. I have great news. Taylor was baptised this morning. There was another little girl baptised who also has cancer. Make a Wish Foundation is planning on sending Taylor to Disneyland on Wed, if she is medically stable.

The baby has awakened. She recognizes both her parents and older brother. A CT scan will be taken tomorrow (Mon) to check for any swelling. If that is negative her staples (from surgery) will be removed and she will be weaned off the ventilator. Thank you all for your prayers. Love and gratitude, Jane

10/22/2007 07:20

Wonderful, wonderful, Jane!! Praise God for His loving care and for answering all the prayers said for both - I pray Taylor will be well enough to enjoy Disneyland,
Much love & Hugs,

Dear Lord, Sorry but my anger for you at this time gives me no right to ask of anything from you. You see, you took everything from me, my son Adam.

10/22/2007 20:15

Hello jrance, welcome to the Circle, although none of us wanted to become a member here. I can feel your pain right through your post. Its alright to be angry at God, its a very normal reaction and He's Big enough to handle your anger. We'll all stand in the Gap for you and pray. It hurts like hell, doesn't it. You can't even begin to describe the pain to someone who hasn't experienced this ultimate of losses........but you can here, we all understand only too well.
This Circle is a safe haven to talk about your child, your grief and in return you'll only receive support, love, understanding, never any judging and prayers.
So please, post again, we do care,
Love & {{Hugs}}
