From the Back Cover

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

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.

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.

I was really stuck in the grief I had from losing our baby I was about 12 weeks into the pregnancy when I miscarried but the baby had only grown to about 8 weeks when it died. I had a hard time coming to terms that it was no longer alive inside of me, i wanted to have enough faith that a miracle could happen and that our baby could be healed, but it wasn't meant to be God had other plans. This book helped me close the door on my grief and start moving on with my life. I was feeling like no one could understand what I was going through especially my husband, and this book covers all of that. I now am a life coach, coaching parents through grief and this book gave me a good bases of what needed to be addressed and talked about to be able to move forward.I love that you journal in it, and it asks you questions no one else will. Such as how have you been hiding the pain of your loss? Or How has loss changed you, or What new insight has God shown you about yourself? This is the first and only book I reach for when recommending someone something to read after the loss of there child. Hope it will help heal your life like it did mine.

Thank you, Kathe, for openly sharing your journey through the grief. This spiritual publication has opened up so many different emotions for me, so many unexpected feelings of loss, guilt, anger... After taking the journey myself, I have begun to walk again -- with others -- through their grief and pain. Thank you for providing the structure and 'path' which opens up the possibility for healing. Wonderful work, guided by God...

Now and then the joyous anticipation of a child's birth transforms into the disappointment and grief of a miscarriage, tubal pregnancy, stillbirth, or early infant death. Having experienced three miscarriages and the death of an infant son, Kathe Wunnenberg well knows the pervasive and enduring anguish of losing a child. A compendium of thematically appropriate devotions, Grieving The Child I Never Knew arose from her personal journey through sorrow and her desire to offer other parents in her place a wise and tender companion when their hearts have been broken, their dreams abruptly terminated, and their aspirations disrupted by the loss of a child. Each devotion includes a passage of scripture, a prayer, "Steps Toward Healing" questions, and a space for journaling. There are also comforting readings for holidays and special occasions. If you, or someone you know, is suffering the grief of a lost child, then Grieving The Child I Never Knew can be a means toward acquiring comfort, solace, acceptance, and hope.

This is the perfect book for those of us who have faced the sudden and unexpected end of a pregnancy. I didn't know how to grieve my loss, after all, I had never seen or held or touched or heard my baby, but all the same, I felt an unexplainable depth of pain and loss. This book helped me to validate my unborn child's existence, give him or her an identity, and work through the process of healing. Five months after my loss, I still hurt and grieve and ache for my baby, but I know I'm on the road to recovery and will continue to recover with the help of books like this one. I also ordered one for my mother, who suffered a miscarriage 33 years ago...she said it even helped her to deal with the loss of that "unknown" child so long ago. I would recommend this to anyone who has suffered a pregnancy loss, who has lost a young child, or who loves someone who is going through such a difficult time as that.

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.
