Thoughts from the Chair of TCF as we approach Christmas
" ...Find some space for you. Allow yourself to lean into the grief, the missing and the longing for your child. Honour them and keep them close. We don't need to pretend. Who are we pretending for? The memories of Christmas past may sustain you in Christmas present. Let them come crashing in and allow yourself a smile remembering those happy times. We need them".
Maria Ahern, bereaved mum of James and our Chair of Trustees, shares her thoughts as we move towards "the most wonderful time of the year" - the Christmas and winter festivities.
