Wondering by Allison Moore, JCMF Executive Director

Today is an amazing Monday! It started with overcast skies and is now filled with sunshine and clear blue skies. In 5 weeks from today my husband and I are expecting a little boy. My husband is already a step father to my 8 year old son, but I know this will be a little different.  This special day is already filled with mixed emotions as it would have been my father-in-laws birthday. My sister-in-law took her life at the age of 16 and my father-in-law took his life at the age of 49.
As the weeks past and the birth of our son approaches, I wonder…
How will my husband feel becoming a father after loosing his father in such a tragic way and on his dad’s birthday?
How can I assure my husband that he is good, strong, loving, capable and enough?
Being the only boy of two children, it was hard for my husband to have his father “choose his deceased sister over him.” I have been told the grief process never truly ends. And I want him to know that our my love and support does not end nor does that of our Heavenly Father.
Please enjoy this article and the enlightenment it may offer. And for those  who are struggling… help is available and joy will come!!
