Hi Dearestangelbook,

Yes. The child loss forum is for all who have lost a child, regardless of how they died. This is a safe place to come to share your feelings as opposed to on the 'outside' where 'how our children died' is at times, judged by others. Feel free to share your story as telling our story, connecting with our feelings is the only path to healing.

There are times when we need to share certain aspects of our grief that could be upsetting to read, by others. If this need should arise, a simple "Graphic" or "Sensitive" in the title line will be sufficient so that others can either choose to or choose not to read it.

Welcome to Webhealing!

Love,
Terry

Birthdays & Angel Dates

Birthdays & Angel Dates

For those new to webhealing and to those who haven't yet posted them, feel free to post your Child's Birthday and Angel Day for all to read so they will be remembered for how special they all are.

We can feel so alone at times in our grief, as others over the years do not mention our children as they did earlier on and we all know how hurtful this can be.

I try to remember all of our children and I know the dates as they are posted either in Introductions or Birthdays & Angel Dates.

Out of respect for your grief, if for some reason you would not like to have your child remembered on the board here, please PM me with your child's name and your name and I will not post their dates. You owe me no explanation. I have received one request and I appreciate your honesty and always, respect your personal choices.

Your safety here on the board and respect for your personal path while grieving remains my #1 priority!

Much love to all,
Terry

Board Changes - Please Read
« Reply #109 on: October 03, 2010, 10:00:17 PM »
This thread is open to all Webhealing board members!

Thank You to all who have responded regarding the different boards that you feel would better suit your grief and healing needs. It was important that we hear from you first before reaching this decision, as your comfort and safety is our main concern.

Starting next week, we will be adding three new boards to Webhealing; Spouse/Partner Loss, Mother/Father Loss and a board dedicated solely to Suicide. Regarding the Suicide board: we will be providing all members involved with information dedicated to ensuring a safe environment due to the sensitive nature of the content being shared.

In order to aid in creating these boards for our members, we would greatly appreciate any suggestions or ideas that you might have.

This thread will remain permanent for you to be able to continue to voice any concerns, feedback and suggestions on any of the boards. If you like the idea of the board changes but don't wish to post a response, a smiley will suffice! :) This would give us a thumbs up and would let us know that you are in agreement. Again, your comfort is our main concern.

Thank You so much for making Webhealing the warm and loving family that has been it's hallmark for over 15 years.

With Love & Respect,
Webhealing Staff

It has been brought to our attention that some of our members have the desire for a private board. They have expressed the need to keep their sharing of sensitive information available to only other members of webhealing. It is an option that we're considering in order to ensure your privacy and the extra security if there is enough interest.

Please let us know how you feel about this!

Thanks,
Webhealing Team

The board is already set up, that people can only read if they aren't logged in.  Wanting a message base to be totally private is getting real popular on Facebook.   If people want total privacy, let them use facebook.   

I think we probably have numerous readers, that never register, because, they don't want to talk, they just want to read and realize they are not alone in their feelings.

That is the reason for this board, is to help people, not keep them out.

You have private mail too.

Without knowing why this was asked for, I tend to agree . . . the board is meant for sharing and for others to be able to read and know they aren't alone.

Hi!

The contents of the message on the Main board is slightly different from the original topic, posted here on the child loss board. We're asking the question and the reason was stated:

"It has been brought to our attention that some of our members have the desire for a private board. They have expressed the need to keep their sharing of sensitive information available to only other members of webhealing."

This statement/question above is posted in this thread.

Love,
Terry

For Peggy & Sarah,

I apologize for the confusion regarding these topics. The topic that was originally responded to was meant for Spouse Loss, Parent Loss, and Sibling Loss only. I have moved the responses to the appropriate thread and if you wish to Modify/Edit, or leave it as is, please feel free.

Thank You,
Love,
Terry

Hi Terry!! Long time no see!

Well I for one would've REALLY hoped a private board was available at the time I first joined. After my ex hacked into my posts, I rarely posted anymore just knowing that everything I said was being read by him. But after being on Facebook and seeing what's going on some other grief groups, if someone really wants to get in, they'll manipulate their way in one way or another.  Well just my two cents!!
Landon's Mom forever,

Shelly

I am kind of split on this, when I first came to WH I read through a lot of the post to see if this was the type of forum I was looking for.

On the other had I do think that a private board would be good. I find that when I post I restrict and edit what I say so that unwanted people cannot identify me.

I guess to sum it up a private board would be good and would feel more secure.

My concern would be how private can you make it? As sad as it sounds there are people who pray who those who are broken and how much more broken can you be when you lose your child? So it would have to really be monitored I think there are concerns ...just my thoughts on the matter ...

I agree with Sarah W.... although I don't post here but once a year now if even that.. I think that for the newer people, this should remain just as it is...
People that want more privacy.. can get it in other ways.   I have to ask, how much more privacy does one need? I mean. here you do have private messages... what else? People can email others.. that's private?  so.. it doesn't make sense to change this board at all.....

Hey Susie! Thanks!

I appreciate everyone's input as it's the only way we can serve all of our members. I see this basically like certain privacy settings on facebook. We can choose whether or not our next door neighbors can read the intimate details of our afternoon with a mutual friend, or any personal info for that matter because we have that option of allowing only who we want, to read on our page.

The boards wouldn't change. They would still be open to the public so everyone could still read the same as they have been. The request was for "a" private board (by child loss members) and those who choose would share on it. It's up to the members.

I was never on facebook a lot, although I have been on more lately as I miss you guys and really enjoy the social interaction. It was really the only reason I started a fb page. And, I'm glad that I can choose who can or cannot read the information I'm sharing with my friends!

Thanks again for popping over! :)

Love,
Terry
