By Judith Gilbreath
If you'd like to read the ramblings of a grieving parent or if you are a grieving parent. This is a little of my experience.
An autobiographical journal, leading you through the grief and pain of losing a child, not once, but twice. The survival of family after a child dies and fight to make through each day. Helpful discussion of what works and what doesn't as you face the hurdles every grieving parent, sibling or grandparent faces. From the hospital to the funeral and beyond. Only a parent of a child who has died can truly relate to the trauma and issues it causes for families. Not only parents but sisters, brothers and Grandparents as well. Only parents who have made it through this particular tragedy can advise and understand the pain it causes.
