Losing a child is the worst tragedy a parent can experience. And yet it happens to many from various causes, including Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), death from illness, stillborn birth, or miscarriage. A Precious Loss offers those who have experienced such a death a window into the grief process. It presents the biblical grief model and the emotions to expect after a loss, and it includes the steps to move forward toward peace and contentment.

While each parent’s experience is unique, this book is written with deep insight and strong compassion. It provides grieving parents with:

· Concrete steps to coping and recovery, including how to care for your health and your relationships and how to cope with emotions and behaviors you can expect to experience

· Biblical support for finding comfort and hope in your darkest hours

Recognition of the hard questions you may have, such as these:

· Why me?

· Was this my fault?

· Is someone to blame?

· Is this some sort of punishment for things I did or did not do?

· Is there a purpose for my child’s death?

· Can I trust God?

If you or a loved one is grappling with the devastating loss of a child, this book will provide hope and encouragement to press on, knowing that God will sustain you through this painful experience.

My Review

A Precious Loss is a book written for those who have suffered Miscarriage, Sudden Infant death syndrome, or stillborn. That would be very hard to go through. I like the part about naming the baby even if they didn’t know the sex. They sounded like a great idea. The book covers the mourning process of recovery. Discusses how it involves the whole family. Even though I have never suffered a loss that this book covers, I did learn from reading the book.

I received a complimentary copy of the book from Celebrate Lit. This book review is my own opinion.

More from Sharon

A miscarriage or infant death is strikingly harsh and so many times unknown by others, which leaves the mother and family without support or understanding. The statistics tell the story. One in four conceptions end in miscarriage. Seventy Five Percent of the marriages end in divorce when a child under three dies.

How do families survive the death of a child, a miscarriage, or tragic illness or accident that is such a sacred, personal and bewildering lossevent? A Precious Loss is packed with sage advice, coping skills, presentation of God’s Model of Grieving, the Gospel, helpful, authentic recognition of the emotional overload of loss. The book presents the blueprint from chaos, sadness, upheaval, questioning, new and strong emotions to contentment. It presents the pathway to the reach contentment and live abundantly again.
