The first thing that pops up on your phone is the Snapchat group “blu rays” with more than 500,000 members.
Some of the pictures posted to the app are sweet and cute.
But it also has some more serious content.
It’s a place for parents to share their most painful and heartbreaking moments and, in the process, to share a lot of their personal life with their friends.
“We’ve never seen anything like this before,” said Emily Littman, a mom from Atlanta.
“It’s been so weird.”
Littman said her daughter is a former drug user and that’s been the most devastating part of her life.
She said she’s also struggling to cope with losing her mother, who died in a car crash about four years ago.
She was 17.
The car she was driving was stolen and the driver was sentenced to prison for a robbery.
But Littmann has since recovered.
She got married and has a daughter now.
But she said she still struggles to see how her family can move forward.
“I know we’ve got to be more open to each other,” she said.
“So much of our lives are going to be wrapped up in each other and I think we’ve all learned that to a degree.”
A look at how to keep your family together on SnapChatThe “bud-ray” was started in 2006 by a group of parents on the East Coast.
But the app’s popularity has been growing.
Since July, Snapchat has more than 11 million members and has about 50 million monthly active users.
Littmann said she hopes that by sharing the most personal content with her family, she can find the strength to be better.
“You need to let people know that they have your back,” she explained.
“The best way to do that is to make it a family thing.
It helps keep things like your parents around.
It makes your relationship easier, which is what we’re trying to do.”
The family members who are on the “buds” have been friends for more than a year, so Littmans mom can share in their sorrow.
“When we see the photos on Snapchat, they’re like, ‘Oh my God, you’re crying,'” she said, “and I’m like, that’s the worst thing.
I don’t know how I’m going to get through this.
It just doesn’t get any easier.”LITTMAN said she knows the app is meant for parents who are struggling with losing their parents and wants her family to be on the same page.”
People can say they’re on their own, but I know how much it means to be able to share in a way that you can hold each other up,” she added.”
It’s really about knowing how much I love my parents, and the pain I have.”
