Who we are and what we strive to do :  BPUSA Credo

We are the parents whose children have died. We are the grandparents who have buried grandchildren. 

We are the siblings whose brothers and sisters no longer walk with us through life.

We come together as Bereaved Parents of the USA to provide a haven where all bereaved families can meet and share our long and arduous grief journey.

We attend monthly gatherings whenever we can and for as long as we believe necessary. We share our fears, confusion, anger, guilt, frustrations, emptiness and feelings of hopelessness, so that hope can be found anew. As we accept, support, comfort and encourage each other, we demonstrate to each other that survival is possible.

Together we celebrate the lives of our children, share the joys and the triumphs as well as the love that will never fade. 

Together, we learn how little it matters where we live, what our color or our affluence is, or what faith we uphold as we confront the tragedies of our children’s deaths.

Together, strengthened by the bonds we forge at our meetings, we offer what we have learned from each other to every more recently bereaved family.

We are the Bereaved Parents of the USA.

 We welcome you.
