Hold The Door For Others believes that understanding and connecting with one’s loss or adversity are important parts of the healing and growth process. Perhaps one of the most effective means of doing this is through sharing our stories of loss and growth. In this spirit, please find below a collection of stories of growth and letters from the Hold The Door Family that we have included as an inspiring resource for you. The stories will illustrate that anyone who has lived with loss can not only survive loss and adversity, but also thrive despite loss. Each of these Stories of Growth have a theme woven through based on one of the eight elements of the OTHERS(S) model.
