Forever Changed: Conversation Cafe

February 21 @ 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

We are proud to be partnering with Nightingale Centre as part of their Conversation Cafe series.

An out-of-order death such as child loss breaks a person in a way that is not fixable or solvable. Families will learn to pick up the pieces and move forward, but their lives will never be the same. Every grieving parent must find a way to continue to live with loss, and it’s a solitary journey. On the other hand, when a child dies, siblings are often referred to as the “forgotten mourners.” The magnitude of child loss is understood and profoundly impacts those who experience it. However, children who lose a sibling experience great pain as well. At this café, we will hear from and connect with people who share a similar lived experience. Learn where others found support, how they coped or managed.

BFO is co-facilitating this conversation with Compassionate Friends of Waterloo Region. Register here: Forever Changed: Child Loss (Sibling Loss) – Guelph Public Library (
