Review

... words of comfort that clarify... insightful, embracing, comforting... excellent gift item... great resource for providers and group facilitators. -- World Pastoral Care Center, The Rev. Richard B. Gilbert

From the Back Cover

Couples who suffer a miscarriage often feel themselves to be alone in their grieving. Those whose children die before birth, rather than after birth, often do not have access to rituals that can provide comfort and closure for the loss parents experience. Friends and families frequently feel awkward around the couple, not knowing what to say or do to be helpful. Here, finally, is a book for the grieving parents, that acknowledges the pain of their loss and which offers encouragement for the future.

Melissa Sexson Hanson, who has suffered two miscarriages, writes personally and movingly of her own experiences, of the grief and sadness, and of the difficulty of the recovery process. She also writes of hopefulness and of God's healing presence in her life. In meditations and prayers based on biblical (NRSV) passages, Hanson offers hope and comfort to couples during this painful time.

A Daystar Devotion book.

Melissa Sexson Hanson is a freelance writer living in Wichita, KS.

I have read a lot of book on miscarriage. I have lost 3 babies in a year and this book brought such emotions. The author was honest and I loved the way she found scriptures to help fit the feelings I have been feeling. I will have to say my faith had been shaken. Once I read When Mourning Breaks it gave me back my faith and I know that I am loved by God.

Format: Paperback
This book was given to me shortly after I miscarried early in my first pregnancy. Although my experience was different than the author's, our feelings and heartache were the same. This book is Christianity based, and offers scripture verses and prayer. Although I was too grieve-striken to read the spiritual parts during my first reading, I found the author's personal stories of her silent grieving through everyday life to be comforting. This book includes initial reactions of learning about the miscarriage, fear, her personal mourning process, other people's reactions (including spouse and friends), and hope. What I appreciated about the book was the author leading me through the daily hardships that the author faced when trying to recover from her grief. This book comforted me in knowing I am not the only one. It tells how others "forget" the miscarriage or choose not to speak of it when the author needs support and finds none. This book helped me a great deal and was inspiring to learn how someone else lived through this painful time, gaining strength through her belief in God.
