Surviving Parents Getting There Together...
The Peregrine Manifesto
We accept fully that grief is part of our story now.
We recognize that no one else can fully know the shape or depth of our unique journey.
In our trigger moments, we process complex emotions without judgment.
We recognize that our emotional 'tsunamis' serve to cleanse our hearts and guide us forward toward lighter moments.
We honor the ebb and flow of energy this brings, finding safe harbors to rest when needed.
Patience and compassion for ourselves must become our constant practice.
Rituals sustain us. We keep our children alive within our hearts through meaningful symbols and actions.
We share these touchpoints with others when we can, though we must guard them as private and sacred.
It is understood that platitudes and simplistic comforts will rankle us, and we are quick to understand and forgive.
We seek to guide and transform advisors into compassionate listeners, knowing they aim to empathize. They care.
We recognize that integrating the grief journey into our lives is the work of a lifetime.
We mosaic our broken pieces gradually into a new whole. Purpose will re-emerge, though in a different shape than before.
We do this as a community, bonded by the deepest ties and understanding of those who walk beside us on the grief journey.
We courageously endure this process together, and honor our children, guided by their beautiful light which lives within us and works through us.

This is not a healing circle. We do not believe that surviving one's is something we can ever heal from, nor do we want to. This is a proactive group of really great men from around the world who wish to channel our grief into service in honor of our kids. No doubt about it... surviving your child sucks. Still, no one should stagnate in their mourning or grief. Let's do something with it... together.

THE MISSION of the Lost Travelers Club is to provide a supportive and empowering community for parents who have outlived our beloved children.
Through charitable work, travel groups, and retreats, we aim to break through isolation, cope with grief, and honor the memories of our children as we step back into the world with purpose and power.
"As Peregrines, we are each Lost Travelers on the wondrous adventure of discovering and creating new pathways toward wholeness. The destination may seem elusive, but it is the imagination of possibility that keeps us moving forward.'

SEPTEMBER IS SERVICE DOG AWARENESS MONTH
Flat Stanley the Service Dog, the official D.O.G. (Director of Goodness) of the LTC, is an expert in PTSD mitigation. He suggests that you take The PCL-5 PTSD Self-Assessment Test. It has been shown to be a reliable and valid measure of PTSD. It has been used in a variety of settings, including clinical settings, research settings, and military settings.
If you are concerned that you or someone you know may have PTSD, the PCL-5 can be a helpful tool for screening for the disorder. However, it is important to remember that the PCL-5 is not a diagnostic tool. A diagnosis of PTSD can only be made by a qualified mental health professional.
