Over time, many parents who have lost children find their pain begins to diminish in intensity. They may experience less secondary victimization as they distance themselves from the aftermath, become more cognizant of their triggers, and/or equip themselves with the tools and resources they need to cope with their loss. 

Drawing from the science, we have begun to develop a holistic framework for broader support. For example, parents may discover or create opportunities to gather under the banner of a common life experience, but turn their focus to a topic or activity other than the death of their child. This framework is not comprehensive, but instead continues to evolve as we meet with more parents and grief experts.
