Very close to my own experience Sep 6, 2003
I hardly know what to say- I just finished reading this book. I lost my son just 2 weeks ago due to a birth injury. Davis's experience very closely matches my own. I absolutely recommend this book to anyone who has lost a baby or who wants to understand what it's like. I hope that someday hospitals will provide this book to grieving families. As Davis says, the books given by the hospital are about how we "should" be grieving. This book is wonderful because it shares what Davis went through- no shoulds. I wish I could write a more precise review. As one who has been there, this is exactly the sort of book I recommend.
I am "Forever Changed" too. Nov 30, 2001
This is one of the most powerful books I've ever read. As a mother, one of my greatest fears is loosing my child and I thank God every day for his safety.
This book brought a face to the tragedy and sorrow of the loss of a child. I am grateful for that insight. I am also grateful for the advice given to friends of those who have lost children. One of the hardest things to do is to find the right words to tell a friend that you are sorry and grieving with them. This book helped me with to find ways to do that.
Thank you Kellie for sharing such personal grief with us. You are a very special person. Your book is fantastic!
A Mother's (Heart-Rending) Experience Nov 21, 2001
(...) I was completely unprepared for the wrenching and profound experience of reading of this woman and her husband's travails. My never having been a parent in no way lessened the sense of tragedy and clutching grief that gripped me as I read this book. The fact that Kellie was able to share with others how she approached each stage of her attempts to deal with her loss and to return to some semblance of a normal life, as well as to suggest how the trauma might be alleviated some by using her journal prompts, was a brilliant way for Kellie to share this experience and help give closure not only to herself, but to others who may have similar experiences. Her book fills a void the awareness of which is known only by those who have been through the horrible loss of a child by whatever means and it would surely be a beacon for coping for any who have lost a loved one through senseless and abrupt death.
