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.

My dearest Miss V, my sister, its so good to see you posting here, I think it's helping you cope a little bit right now, being around us all and knowing how loved you really are and that we're all sharing in this oh so hard time for you, David, James and especially little Steven. You know that all of you are covered in prayer and God is definitely with all of you during this tragic time. I also pray that you stay in this 'fog' for as long as possible!
I love your new Username, yes, it was part of Baby Girl's address, I still have it in my Address Book, I just don't have the heart right now to delete it.
I've read all of the Entries in the online Memorial, they too are filled with love and prayers, with each person sharing with you all the affect Baby Girl had on their lives, you can be mighty proud of her!
So please keep posting, we all want to hear how you and your family are copingplus, as I said, I think its good for you.
Lots of love, prayers & Hugs,

My dear sister Ms. V. Today is a special day and we all know how hard it could be, may you feel Cheryl's presence very very close to you, may you receive many signs showing you how happy she is right now, may God hold you in His Arms today and always and may only the good and happy memories come to mind. I am sure that Diane and all of our Angel kids are having a wonderful birthday party for Cheryl and you will hear all the Angel sing. My love and prayers are always with you and the family.

4/3/2009 13:14

My dearest Miss V,
My heart and prayers are with you today as well, this has to be so difficult, Cheryl's Birthday so soon after her passing!
May our Loving Lord wrap His arms around you all and surround you with His love and comfort,
Lots of love & Hugs,

Angel Moms, thank you for the prayers. Well I've almost made it through the first month. For those who know me this will blow your minds. The time of the accident was almost the same as Diane's. One happened at night and the other in the daytime. I can't bring myself to look at details on the accident report yet. I just know the little that I will allow James to share with me. At the moment, I can't even ask God why; because I really don't want to know yet. My mind and sinuses need to stay stuffy for now. :( God, this is hard. :( I am really missing my baby-girl tonight or I could say this morning.:( Again, ... this is really, really hard. Guess I'll allow a few tears to flow if they want to; then try to go get some rest. Got a lot to do tomorrow. Right now I am supposed to be putting the final touch on a couple of pages I hope to have done for our high school memory book. God willing, we will be celebrating our 50th high school reunion in June of this year. The last on I participated in, Cheryl and James were our guest. :( One minute, five minutes maybe? at a time sounds about right for now!

My dear sister Miss.V. I am so glad to see your post, i've been so worried about you, yes my dear sister, we all know how hard it is, I also stopped asking the whys when I realized that I would not accept a "because".I had a dream that I was giving you a big hug, it was so real that when I woke up today I was so sure that i visited you and gave you a big hug, I wish that we lived closer my dear sister, in the meantime, yes, please take a few minutes at a time and be sure that all your Angel Sisters are praying very hard for you and the family, may God hold you in His Arms anf give you strength and courage. My love ans prayers are always with you.

4/17/2009 07:55

Dear Angel Moms, ... I am sitting here laughing out loud, because as I looked at the time on my PC just now, it is showing 5:24 AM. For those who know me KNOW I am a STRONG believer in Signs. For others I am referring to signs which are sometimes given by the Holy Spirit to let me know that God is with me and family and HE WILL SEE ME/US THROUGH. The time I referred to is also my "birth date": 5/24. ... and this is the 3rd time God has shown this time to me in less than a minute on different clocks in our kitchen/dining room area. First, as I floated down the hallway, 5:24 popped up on the clock on our microwave; then on the stove top clock, and finally as I made it around the counter top that separates our kitchen/dining area and sat down to type this post, it was still glaring me in the face! [LOL]. So, with the help of meds, and the many prayers that I know you are praying for me, ... I think God, Cheryl, Diane, and our other Angel Kids are saying to me, "Okay, we let you stay up all night [again] doing literally nothing ... Now it's time for you to go to bed!" :) So until later Angel Moms, thanks again for all the love and support, and I'll see you in the morning!

4/18/2009 22:33

My dear Miss V. What can I tell you?, I know how you stay up at night and don't get so much needed rest, I also remember that Sandy and I used to tell you that we were going to tell on you to Cheryl, and I still do, I will tell Cheryl on you. You know, as well as I do, that our Angel kids are still very much alive in Heaven, they still watch over us, so I INSIST, you get some rest, or I will tell on you.
My dear sister, we will have to stay here, until God decides, you know that and so do I. I am praying hard. My love and prayers.

I had lost a baby girl before I could give birth to her. I knew her even when she was in my belly. I feel in love with her as well. I was 6 months pregnant when I had lost her. And I have alot of guilt in my heart. I think about her everyday, even though it has been six years since it's happened. I wish she could be here with me. I beat on myself for losing her. I have a little boy now. He is three years old, and he has saved me!!! I love him to death, he is my everything. But I would like my guilt in my heart from losing my little girl to go away... thanky ou.

4/19/2009 15:08

My heart goes out to you. Thank you for starting this. I ask for your prayers also. I lost my youngest son, he was 21 years old to a drunk drivier in March of 2008. The grief, depression, hurt, and wondering why continues.
I pray for all parents who have lost a child, and ask for prayers also.
It is more difficult than anyone can understand, unless they have gone through it.

4/27/2009 09:47

Hello my dearest Miss V! Please forgive me for not posting earlier, I had PC and B'net issues (that are now resolved) so now I can finally post!
I'm so happy to see you've posted again, God love you, and happy for you that you received a Sign...or as one man posted in an article here, a 'Godwink'.
Selva is right, we used to threaten to tattle on you to Cheryl, (we never did:-), but now your precious baby girl can see for herself that you're staying up so late, so watch it! Please don't forget to take care of yourself as you grieve, we love you and care,
Lots of love, Hugs & Prayers,

Hello brittandbaby, welcome to this Circle of Love, I'm so sorry to read you lost your precious baby at 6 mos.! I know you were looking forward with such joy in your heart to the birth of your baby, and then the most terrible thing a Parent can go through happened to you too, there really are no words to describe the pain and grief that follows. Guilt is one of the emotions that many of us who've lost children feel, so please don't beat yourself up over losing your baby, it is not your fault! This Circle is a judgement free zone and a safe haven to talk about your loss, please post again and let me know how you're doing, I care,
Peace, Light, Hugs & Prayers,
Mom of Shane

Hello krafty5, welcome also to this Circle of Love! My heart goes out to you too, there is no harder loss in life than for a Parent to lose a beloved child. You're very welcome, I started this Circle shortly after we had lost our youngest son Shane, at the age of 24. Truthfully though, it was God who started it, He whispered in my ear to do this.
Your loss is still so recent, just last year, you're still going through the awful pain and grief, God bless you! It takes time and lots of it to learn how to live with your loss - your time, not someone else's idea of time.
Yes, unless you've gone through the loss of a child, others just can't understand....but you'll find plenty of support, compassion, love and understand here!
Thank you on behalf of all AngelMoms for your prayers, they are truly appreciated and know that our's are definitely with you, please post again,
Lots of Hugs & prayer,
Mom of Shane

I would first like to thank God for the person that started this prayer link. It is a blessing to people that has had a tragedy in their family with the loss of a child(ren). You say how do they know. I had two daughters and a grandchild to be killed in a car accident in 2002. I will never forget it. I am not over it. But, I must go on. Sometimes when it weighs heavy on my mind, I just call on Jesus to help me through. There are other times when everything around me reminds me of them. But, I remember that the Lord is my keeper and I must remember the good times that we shared. God is a just God, and He promised that we would not carry any burdens that were too hard(heavy) for us. (Paraphrased). So, I pray for you and everyone that has had a child to die in one way or another to be healed. in Jesus' name. Blessings, and honor belongs to our God and He is still good. Remember, Jesus loves and cares for you. Blessings upon each and everyone that will read this.

Shaner, I too have lost 2 children 30+ years and I strongly BELIEVE GOD of Heaven will send JESUS for US in less time than that. May you feel His abiding Love and those who pray for you. Your Sister N Christ, Varonica

5/4/2009 08:58

My heart & prayers go out to each & everyone who has lost a child,I lost Patrick @13. You learn how to cope but it's never the same.

5/7/2009 23:11

I lost a very beautiful son too in 1996 when he was a healthy, handsome young man of 27. So I know the pain only too well and the grief of nostalgic memories. May our Lord who has comforted us give you the peace that passeth all understanding and help you face each day with Faith and Trust in the Hope that we will certainly meet one day on that beautiful shore.

5/9/2009 20:14

To all our dear Angel sisters. I just want to wish you all a very Peaceful Mother's Day, this is a very difficult day for us all, but we are still Mothers, our angel kids are still our dear wonderful daughers and sons, and I am sure they are all wishing us a very Happy Mother's Day. May you all receive signs from our Angels, learn how to see those signs and may God give us all some Peace. My love and prayers to all.

I join in with our dear sister Selva in wishing you the same for Mothers Day, still a difficult day to deal with for most. I'm going to post a Poem I came across, I think its very appropriate for today,
Love, AngelHugs, Prayers,

May I give my Mom a Rose,
To let her know I'm here?
I always did when on earth,
I know she'll feel me near.

I'm sure that she will think of me,
On this her Mother's Day.
I was her beloved child,
But I had to go away.

I hope she knows I love her,
And will for eternity.
Father says that some day,
She'll be here with me.

When she sees this rose so sweet.
She'll know I've found a way.
To send her hugs and kisses,
And a rose for Mother's Day.

Love to all, Sandy
