I wish the hospital had given me Empty Arms to read immediately; instead I finally found it and opened it a month later. If someone had read it to me right then, especially the section 'Decisions You Might Face Right Away,' my regrets would have been so much less. Sherokee's gentle words and advice could have guided us to make better decisions after Bryce died and would have informed us of options that we didn't even know about. Her comforting messages touched us, and we felt less alone and crazy during our grief journey. -- --Lori Martini, bereaved mom/stillbirth advocate<br \><br \>Thank you for your lovely book, which we were given before our baby was even delivered. It gave us the courage to make the hard decisions that proved to be the medicine to mend our broken hearts. -- --Debbie Crippen<br \><br \>This book was a tremendous inspiration to my patients. I feel you have done a great service to bereaved parents --Stephen Larson, M.D., Ob-Gyn
