Grief Diaries: Surviving Loss of a Child
Part of the Grief Diaries series dedicated to offering comfort, company and hope in the aftermath of life’s challenges and losses.
Surviving Loss of a Child shares the poignant stories of 22 bereaved mothers. Covering tender issues such as navigating the holidays, when to sort through our child’s belongings, handling the question about how many children we have, and more, Surviving Loss of a Child is a wonderful source of comfort for all parents who share the unimaginable.
In chapter one, each writer bravely penned the moment when their familiar lives disappeared along with their precious child’s last breath. The writers were then presented with intimate questions pertaining to their loss, and their responses are compiled within the individual chapters. These narrations are unabridged, as every voice is unique.
