Item description for Grieving the Child I Never Knew: A Devotional for Comfort in the Loss of Your Unborn or Newly Born Child by Kathe Wunnenberg...
Overview Writing from her own experience of loss, Wunnenberg offers 31 devotions that give both men and women permission to grieve the loss of their unborn or newly born children. Rather than a how-to manual, this book is a companion on the journey of loss and healing, traveling through the stages of hiding, suffering, questioning, forgiving, relating and seeking.
When the anticipation of your child s birth turns into the grief of miscarriage, tubal pregnancy, stillbirth, or early infant death, no words on earth can ease your loss. But there is strength and encouragement in the wisdom of others who have been there and found that God s comfort is real. Having experienced three miscarriages and the death of an infant son, Kathe Wunnenberg knows the deep anguish of losing a child. Grieving the Child I Never Knew was born from her personal journey through sorrow. It is a wise and tender companion for mothers whose hearts have been broken--mothers like you whose dreams have been shattered and who wonder how to go on. This devotional collection will help you grieve honestly and well. With seasoned insights and gentle questions, it invites you to present your hurts before God, and to receive over time the healing that He alone can--and will--provide. Each devotion includes: * Scripture passage and prayer * "Steps Toward Healing" questions * Space for journaling Readings for holidays and special occasions also included"

Loving and Losing Mar 8, 2007
This book was such a wonderful gift when we lost our daughter. Out of all the materials that were received this one truly walked me through my feelings and gave hope. We now donate a number of these books to our hospital so that the comfort I found can be shared with others that are grieving.
AMAZING resource Apr 23, 2006
This book is extremely helpful for anyone going through the pain of miscarriage or infant loss. It is sensitive and wise, it was a God-send to me during one of the darkest periods of my life.
Perfect Gift Book for Grieving Mothers Mar 7, 2006
Looking for one book to give as a gift to a family grieving the death of their baby? This is the one! The hardbound "keepsake" quality of this book, matched with ample journalizing space to document and personalize your own grief journey, beautifully compliment the author's devotional reflections, packed with wisdom and spiritual insights from a mom who's "been there" through loss.
Grieving the Child I Never Knew was published the same month we experienced our second miscarriage, the death of our son Joel. I was devastated by the loss and so grateful for this resource to help me process all the emotions and questions that I had not known how to cope with when our first baby, Noel, had died six years earlier. This book became even more of a lifeline to me when we went on to miscarry Hannah later that same year. The author, having miscarried three babies and lost one son in infancy, was so honest and "real" both in sharing pain and hope.
difficult to read Jan 17, 2006
After experiencing a loss recently, I was looking for books to help me during the difficult days that follow. I was looking for more personal experience or scientific info. All of the references to the bible in relation to pregnancy loss just did not make a connection with me. I am a spiritual person, but I just did not find this book very helpful. There are many other books that I found informative and comforting.
Great book Aug 6, 2005
I recently purchased this book and have found it to be immensily useful. My infant son died three months ago and I have been scouring literature to help me 'face' my grief. I love this book and, at times, I am shocked how elequently Kathy writes how I am feeling. I like the Biblical devotions that accompany each chapter. I use this book as a sort of Bible study to give me Biblical foundations to build my healing upon. I know that someday I will be a sort of 'mentor' to another parent who has lost their child and this is a book that I will give to them. I would say that this is a must-have. Also, if you are reviewing this particular book, I assume you also have experienced the loss of a child or know someone who has....my heart goes out to you.
