Spread the love
Recently I was a guest author for Kate over at I was able to share my story and have it featured on her website. She did a beautiful job. Thank you Kate for helping me get this out there in the best way possible. It was my honor to share with you.

As children, we expect that one day we will lose our parents. To cancer maybe. A heart attack. A stroke. But we never expect that we’ll have to deal with a parent’s suicide.

This post is part of My Sweet Home Life’s Overcomer series – where we look at women whose lives haven’t turned out quite how they expected.
We feature women who have struggled with abuse, addictions, unexpected loss, and challenging circumstances.

Each of these women have come through their experiences with lessons learned – lessons that can help us all as we navigate this crazy thing called life.
Today we share the story of Chris, and her experience of overcoming a parent’s suicide.

Hello, my name is Christine Grove. I am a 52-year-old wife, mother, and grandmother. We have a blended family of six children – five daughters and a son. The oldest daughter is my husband’s, two daughters are from my first marriage, two daughters were adopted with my husband, and together we have a son. All children are grown to adult age. We have six grandchildren, four boys and two girls. We also have two boys on the way, due in August 2018. My husband and I have been married nearly 21 years.
