In their own words

When the reality of my husband’s death weighed on my heart like a 13,000-pound elephant, I found myself staring down the barrel of widowhood while being forced to manage as a solo parent for a 4-year-old and 14-month old. I didn’t even know if we had a life insurance policy.

With no time to grieve my loss, the necessities of life pulled me in so many uncertain directions. No one planned a funeral at my age. Learning how to navigate life as a solo parent for our, I mean, my two young children pressed harder than the crushing pain of my loss. I didn’t know, what I didn’t know, about navigating this new normal.
