2019 National Gathering
Bereaved Parents of the USA sponsors an annual national gathering for bereaved parents, siblings and grandparents. The gathering features workshops, sharing sessions, speakers, a bookstore, butterfly boutique and, most important, an opportunity to meet other parents and families facing life after the death of a child. More so than at a chapter meeting, here a parent is likely to meet another parent who has experienced the same – perhaps unusual – death circumstance as him or herself. For those who don’t attend chapter meetings, an annual gathering is a golden resource.
