TEARS IN HEAVEN was founded to provide financial and emotional support to families that have lost a young child to the ultimate act of violence by a family member.

My family was torn apart by my husband  taking away life of our precious child and then committing suicide. Zuzanna was an amazing, full of life and happiness little girl bringing brightness  to all of us and living her  innocent young life.

My husband  decided to take a knife and violently end her life.

It was the worst tragedy that could happen to anyone.
No explanation, no motive, no emotions, no hints, just a tragic incident that no one can explain. A shock to family members and other parents as well. Why? Media, funeral, life without them from now on, blame, grief, questions, therapy, sadness and yet life goes on.
Being a victim of such tragedy puts me in a place where I appreciate every moment, smile, laugh, memory and emotion forever.
As hard as it is to cope with all of it I  have to go on with my  life, take a deep breath, tell myself  that she is in a better place and I will see her again one day.
Carry on the memory of her, talk about her, honor her in every way possible. Keep her alive by helping others in similar situations.
My goal is to assist in relieving the financial and psychological burden of families that are experiencing what I experienced.
