Karen Edmisten has created a beautiful treasury of words to comfort grieving parents. She shares the stories of her own miscarriages and she has collected stories from other parents. Also beautiful poems and prayers, passages from scripture and other quotes. Karen has a knack of picking just the right words and weaves them into a beautiful tapestry. This is not a sugar-coated book. Some of the stories are raw. I had thought I was done grieving but I found that as I read my tears flowed again and again. Apparently grief was not done with me.
I recommend this book not only to parents who have lost a child but to friends and family who feel at a loss in supporting them in their grief. I also recommend it to nurses, doctors, counselors, anyone who will come into contact with women who have miscarried. During and after my own miscarriage I found that often the medical professionals did not know how to provide words of comfort and spiritual healing.
In the interests of full disclosure I should mention that Karen was kind enough to include in this book a short poem that I wrote that was inspired by my own miscarriage. It is a privilege to be included in this beautiful collection and I hope and pray that this volume will bring comfort and healing to many mothers and fathers who are grieving.
