Publishers Description For those who have lost a child to death, Jack Hayford provides compassionate answers to troubling questions such as, What happened to my baby after it died? Will I ever see my baby again--and will I recognize him? what happens if I've had an abortion? Does God have a reason for letting my child die? God's Word shines with hope in the dark night of human pain. God showed his tenderness when David lost the child he had with Bathsheba shortly after its birth. In his pain and grief, David spoke the word of revelation--reassuring word of God's truth--saying, "I will go to (my child) but he will not return to me" (2 Samuel 12:19-23). The freeing truth of the Word of God promises that, like David, you will hold your child again in heaven.

Waste of money Jan 29, 2007
This book is not for anyone that has lost a child due to medical problems of the child or the mother. It's aimed more at a woman that chose to have an abortion for some reason other than medical necessity. I was hoping for a spiritual book about the loss of a child that was beyond your control. But instead I got a book focused on easing the guilt of an abortion. I found the analogies very ignorant. Like when they compared the loss of a baby to catching an earlier flight at the airport.
Blessed assurance! Dec 11, 2006
I'm so sorry that a few of you were not comforted by this book. It gave me truthes to rest on and hope that I will see my children again in heaven! Thank you Jack Hayford for taking the time to write and share your knowledge & compassion.
I'll Hold You in Heaven, by Jack Hayford Feb 18, 2006
I have sent this book to a couple of women who have lost infants or had a miscarriage. I myself lost a baby years ago and did not have the privilege of this wonderful and encouraging book. I highly recommend it for mothers who have lost babies and/or who have had miscarriages.

I recieved this book after my 3rd pregnancy loss as a companion to a pregnancy loss bible study workbook and I just loved it. It really helped me through the grieving process and guide me to hope through belief in God and heaven that my unborn child is taken care of and one day we will meet. I gained a whole new and healthy perspective on this sad chapter of my life and I believe without reading this book I might not have healed and moved on the way I did.
All about abortion loss Sep 1, 2005
Although other types of loss are meanioned, it seems the goal of this book is to focus on abortion loss and how people who have lost a child through miscarriage, still birth or early infant loss should feel bad for those who aborted their children. Although I can see this being a good book if you have had an abortion and are mourning the loss of that child, I found this book very upsetting and not helpful at all in dealing with the death of my child (since his death had nothing to do with abortion, nor did I want to focus on how I could be sympathetic to someone who chose not to have their child while dealing with the sudden death of my very wanted child).
