Welcome to My Forever Son
Hi, I’m Beth, and I’m the writer and photographer at My Forever Son: Chronicling Grief, Hope, and Healing After Losing My Son to Suicide.
I lost my only child, my 20-year-old son, Dylan, to suicide 11 years ago. A decade of grief, and a decade of healing enough to find my way back to some semblance of my life.
11 years is at once both yesterday and today. Over the course of these past 11 years, I’ve come to realize that Dylan’s journey is now my own. Who I am now reflects the intensity of chronicling the grief, hope, and healing of this past decade. I write to heal and to share my experience in the hope that it might help others.
Writing poetry, composing music, photographing flowers, trees, and nature, and sharing my experience through writing is the focus of My Forever Son. You will also find articles, essays, guest posts, and more.
