"Two years after my son's death, an only child, I started the Grief Recovery Method with Marla. I thought I was doing okay, and people commented to me about my strength and ability to still be successful in life. But, I was harboring such immense deep pain in my heart. I wasn't ready to say goodbye to my son, and I felt tremendous guilt as a Mom that something I did along the parenting path led my son to his death. Through the work with Marla, I realized that saying goodbye wasn't saying goodbye to my son but saying goodbye to all those unresolved emotional pieces of the relationship with my son. All the things I never said - the I'm sorries, or I forgive you. Or simply how much I love him and how much it meant to me to be his Mom. At the end of the program, I found a peace in my heart that I hadn't known since my son passed, and, to be honest, I don't think I had ever known. I now have space in my heart to feel even more of the love I have for my son and can look at his picture and smile while feeling the love we share. Thank you, Marla, for this new lease on life. This doesn't mean I will never be sad again or be in pain again. It just means that I am better equipped to ride those waves since the pain in my heart isn't as deep."
