Dear Parent,

Early in the days of my loss, I often googled different forms of “how to cope” and “what now?” More than two years out from Adrian’s death, I am finally feeling ready to share, from one parent to another, some of the things that have helped me.

Loss is individual. Grief is unique. Please take what you find useful here, and discard all the rest.

I’m so sorry you’re here.
