I am an Angel Parent. After losing my youngest son at only 5 months old I took to writing to help with my grief. I have now turned those writings into a book, "Shattered Soul: An Angel Parent's Journey". My goal is to help Angel Parents know that they are not alone, and to help others understand what we go through, how to help their loved ones, and how to deal with these very delicate situations. My team provides training, education, access to my book (both digital and paperback), and speaking to groups in all areas to help spread the word and break the silence of grief that Angel Parents live in.

What to Expect
It isn’t natural to bury your child, but life doesn’t always follow the natural way. "Shattered Soul: An Angel Parent’s Journey" is a story of every parent’s worst nightmares, the death of a child. Kristina Widener shares her journey of grief after losing her youngest child to SIDS, her emotions, memories, and how she has coped with it all.
“Welcome to my journey.
This has been a road of pain, grief, discover, loss, healing, joy, love, and so many other things that are hard to put a name on. This is my story, my version of the thoughts and feelings that I have experienced since losing my youngest child. That is a hard statement to say, to write, to read, but it is the cold fact of the matter. I will take you through the roller-coaster ride I have lived, and am still living. I will tell you what I can remember, what I felt, and how I feel now at the time of writing this.”
Join Kristina, if only for a brief moment, on her journey. "Shattered Soul: An Angel Parent’s Journey" will take you down an unforgettable path. When you lose a child, you’re still a parent, an Angel Parent, and here is the story of one Angel Parent determined to break the silence of her grief.
Training includes a book (digital or paperback), information, discussion, and role playing. Standard speaking engagements will include information and discussion with the opportunity to purchase a book.
Kristina Widener resides in Ohio with her two children, the love of her life, and his three children. She is a writer, an editor, loves to read, cook, crochet, is passionate about her family, and passionate about her cause: to break the silence of child/infant/pregnancy loss, to give Angel Parents a voice, and to teach the rest of the world how to handle it when someone they love loses a child.
