When I came to the Chapter "Its Not Your Fault" and the author said, "Is God Punishing Me.......this should NOT be ruled out" I was in absolute shock. Then he went on to say that there are several undeniable occurrences in the Bible in which a child was lost or a woman became infertile as punishment for sin". DO NOT BUY this book if you are looking for support with what you are going through. I believe there is no rhyme or reason why women have miscarriages, it happens to wonderful christian couples too. There are terrible people out there that have children of their own so the thought of good people being punished for their sin is preposterous. You do need to have faith that God is shaping our future in some way though.
There were no reviews on this book when I purchased it so hopefully this will help you. I stopped reading the book after what I addressed above so there might some good in the book later. I just did not want to read something by an author (Pastor) that believed that. I highly doubt he would have written that before he had his child.
Added note: I think it is unusual that all of the sudden after the author realized my comment that there are 4 (5) star reviews. There weren't any for several months and none when I purchased the book.
I think back to the day they told me I would never hold my Angela in my arms. She was to be my "Littlest Angel". I had already bought the book and was making plans of decorating her nursery in angel motif - lots of pink in frills - until... Now my Angela is an angel "Asleep in Heaven's Nursery". I wish there had been someone to dry my tears and help me understand.
Though Tommy knows all too well that there is no understanding, he attempts to dry some tears and answer Biblically some of the questions gnawing at each of us such as "Is it my fault?", "Is she really in Heaven?", "What will she look like?", and many more. He also shows that, though a man may not show as much emotion, he does care and he does hurt. He goes over some comments that help and some that made him want to "punch someone in the nose". And lastly, he has testimonies, including his own, of how God blessed even through this hurt and tragedy.
I would highly recommend you read this book whether you've been through the loss of a child or love someone who has.
