I became a widow at the age of 24 back in 2008 due to a doctor's negligence. I pushed myself to move on quickly because I've always wanted to have children and feared if I didn't get back out there, my lifelong dream of motherhood would not happen. I'm now happily remarried, however I still grieve and feel I always will. My late husband's death date is coming up, April 13th will be 4 years. It's hard finding support for young widows, so I'm looking for people who've been in my shoes or are in them now. I want to be able to talk to people who know what I'm going through and can understand that although I'm happy now I still miss my first husband and grieve for him.
