My name is Sara Bailey, and I’m a widow.
Like many people who have lost the love of their life, I never in a million years thought I’d be here. On my 40th birthday — which I spent with my husband and our two kids bowling, devouring cupcakes, and laughing more than I ever thought was possible — I never dreamed that by my 41st, I’d be a grieving single mom raising a son and daughter on her own. But here I am, and with each passing day, I get a little stronger, and life gets a little easier.
Why I created TheWidow.net
It’s been over a year since Greg left us, and although I still — and ALWAYS will — miss him with every single fiber of my being, I owe it to him and his goofball, carefree spirit to make the most out of every day. It’s in his honor that I created this site to support my fellow widows and widowers. Without the unwavering support of my children, family, friends and even selfless strangers, I never would have made it through those first few months. Really, I would probably still have trouble getting out of bed some mornings, even a year later.
