The Legacy Project; Listen to Moms Talk about Remembering Their Kids
Show Notes

This is a very special apologies for saying that. It IS a special episode.

Today, my conversation is with four of the five moms that just completed the 13 week Legacy Writing Project that started January 11, 2023.  One mom was unable to make it due to scheduling, but she was greatly missed in the conversation. I could not be prouder of their bravery and the stories they told.

Today you will meet, Ellen, Aidan's Mom; Nalini, Nick's Mom; Barb, Donavon's Mom; Crystal, Taylor's Mom; and we honor Cerita (Gages mom) who wasn't with us physically but was in heart! I know you will understand by the end of the episode the magic that now exists between them! 

These moms each read a little piece of their chapter AND we discuss these six items with regard to the project: 

  • Why they chose this project
  • What their favorite part of the project was 
  • What the most challenging part of the project was
  •  How did the time frame (total and weekly etc) feel to them
  •  What their plans for the published book are 
  • Would they recommend the project to other grieving moms

In the years since losing my son, Alex, I  discovered that moms who have lost their children to suicide have many different needs. Still, three of them seem universal - the need for resources to help them navigate this grief journey, a community of connection to other moms who 'get it,' and an ache in their hearts to be sure their child is remembered. I provide paths to the first two; this book project helps with the last piece.
