I am confident that my sisters and brothers on here will have nothing but positive contributions and ideas.
1) I'd do a search for other parents going through the same thing, search online, their are groups for all types of situations and grief. Having a friend who is going through the same thing, will be a blessing, just someone to call and talk to.
2) Open your mind to understand that your friend might not be a black person but a person of another race who is dealing with the same issue. I say that because when I have looking into different things it has always been other races.
3) Start your own counseling and look for someone who specializes in grief.
4) I don't know if you go to church, but I know....GOD will not give you more than you can bear. When I went through my "situation" which holds NO CANDLE to your loss. prayer lines helped me greatly. Also just watching the WORD network and listening to sermons.
It helped me to just hear the word of the LORD. I'm going to research some things online and come back and post whatever information I can find for you.
