What do you do when your loved one dies? How do you find the strength and hope to continue? Where is your loved one? Are they OK? Are they out of pain? Are they safe? These questions and so many more consume you as you wonder what do you do now? When that loved one is a child, the grief takes on a new complexity. How could this have happened? Why did it happen? How am I going to survive this? Where is my child?
A Bridge to Healing: J.T.’s Story is a guide book for anyone who has lost someone. Sarina Baptista takes you through her own journey of losing her son, J.T. She describes what worked for her and what didn’t, the discoveries she made and the lessons she learned. Through her journey, something quite amazing happened: She found her son again! He had been there all along!
Our loved ones are so close, yet we often miss the signs they send because of our grief and fears. Sarina Baptista had that same grief and fear, but her desire to find her son again was stronger than any fear! Through training and a very persistent son, she learned she could communicate with the other side!
A Bridge to Healing: J.T.’s Story removes the mystery associated with this communication. Sarina’s message is we can all have this connection, especially those who have lost children. Our children’s desire for communication is so strong, and they will do just about anything to get our attention. She walks us through the pain and the grief to the other side of the devastation and despair. You can have hope and joy after losing a child. Her own journey is testament that hard work and dedication can lead you back to not only your life, but to your child!
Now, it’s your turn. What would you do to communicate with your child? Would that make a difference in your grief recovery? It is easier than you might think, and your child and loved ones are just waiting for you to call!
