A while later, I came to the realization that there were hardly any books out there for fathers who have lost children. Then, my wife told me that Emily Long was putting together a book collecting letters from loss dads, and was looking for submissions.
I knew this book needed to be published. This was exactly the kind of thing I had been looking for. I submitted a letter to the author, and I am deeply honored that she included it in the book.
I immediately ordered the book when it came out, and finished reading it in 3 days. The book is very powerful. Each of the fathers in the book have been through a similar experience, but they all talk about it in a different way. Some of them write about how their faith was impacted, and some are not really religious. Some fathers recount the stories of their children, others focus in on the experience of grief, and dispel some myths about what life will be like afterwards. All of the fathers seem to recognize that while they can give some advice, no father can tell another father how to grieve.
I would recommend this book to any father who has lost a child - whether recently or a long time ago. If you know a couple who has lost a child (or children), consider giving this book to the father as a gift. He may not know that there are resources like this out there, or he may not think it is appropriate for him to reach out for help.
