Building stronger families was born out of a tragic suicide in 2015. By facing the circumstances that led up to our granddaughter committing suicide at the age of 15. We realized that she was facing real and traumatic times in her life that we were not aware of.
Having both parents in the house, great student and in the school choir. There was still pain and anguish that we did not see. This tragic event also shed light on the dynamics of our family and how much under the surface we did not know.
By having real and transparent conversations with ourselves has helped my family heal and become stronger together. It unfortunately took a tragedy to shed a light on not only the dynamics of the individuals in our own family. But to also realize that some of the same issues affect other individuals as well.
