Overcoming grief: a success story

jennibb

Hello all--

This week, Goodwill has a story up on its web site about a woman named Joann Santos who overcame her grief and got a new direction in life after the murder of her son. You can read her story and you can also hear Joann tell her story in her own words by clicking "play" on the podcast player at the bottom of the page.

I hope she can be an inspiration to those of you who have lost children and loved ones--overcoming grief can be a long and arduous process, but it can happen little by little.

Here's the address: http://www.goodwill.org/my-story/joann-santos/
