My name is Jan McDaniel. After I finished college, my beloved husband and I raised our children on a peaceful little farm in Georgia, where I wrote for print and later digital media. After his death, I searched for support and found connecting with others who understood my loss made all the difference. Attending and facilitating Survivors of Suicide loss (SOS) support groups and connecting with the Alliance of Hope for Suicide Loss Survivors online, where I am a forum moderator and content provider, have enabled me to survive and build anew. Now I write about survival, connection, and hope and maintain a website at www.wayforhope.weebly.com.
