July 1 marks the start of Bereaved Parents Awareness Month, an important time to recognize and honor those who have experienced the loss of a child. This special month was founded in 1989 by a group of bereaved parents who wanted to ensure that other grieving families were supported during this difficult time. Over the years, it has become a powerful movement that encourages people to come together and share their stories, as well as provide comfort and hope for those still struggling with grief.
