Carla's revised version of Dreaming Kevin is dedicated to her daughter Amber, who was only 8 years old when her little brother was killed. Testaments from Amber, her friends, and many of the then five and six year old friends and cousins of Kevin, are among the new version's additions. The reflections of these now young adults, are an eye opener.... Often we think young children will get over such tragedy, and due to the tumult of our own emotions, we tend to overlook the depth in which they suffer, and that their suffering may have long lasting emotional implications.
Through the adult voices of these grown up children, we see that they were deeply affected, but incapable of articulating their emotions in ways that could be heard over the noises of the adults' grief. Siblings and friends also need an outlet, to be heard and helped. Thank you Carla Blowey
This book reinforces the wonder and promise of eternal life from our Creator. The spirit and our love is forever!
In "Dreaming Kevin," the involuntary message points to the gap between words about God and our readiness to accept His will. The book made me recognize that I carry the same gap and that our entire civilization suffers from this gap as well. With every passing year, our Christmas trees become shinier, words about God louder, but I am not so sure that our acceptance of God's will is growing as well! Kevin died to force his mother, the author Carla Blowey, to examine the obstacles in her soul that fenced her from God. She did, and she found them through her dream work.
Before I left the former Soviet Union 15 years ago, there was a rumor that in Moscow the demonstrations of mad mothers who had lost their sons in Afghan war were roaming through the city, surfacing here and there and making people uncomfortable. People felt guilt but could do nothing about it. Or so they believed.
Kevin who died at age 5 came to teach us a lesson that all we really could do was open up to God. Not in words but in our frozen, Spartan, desolated hearts that threaten to become peaces of marble, if we don't change!
Her book validates that continuing connections are real and that dream world is a real and necessary part of the grief journey. Her story, her pain, her love, her discoveries, her healing is very real. Wrought from the depths of unimaginable pain and horror she has blessed the world with this captivating and healing tome of self discovery and purpose that will open your eyes, warm you heart, and enlighten your soul. Dreaming Kevin: The Path to Healing is just that, a path to healing. Thank you Carla and Kevin.
