Product description


The following testimonials are from parents like you who read this book during its creation.

“I can see this book becoming a companion for those who find themselves on this unimaginable path of child loss. It is a wonderful acknowledgement of all that we endure in our first year of grieving”.

Carly Marie Dudley, Christian’s mama


“THIS is the book I wish I’d had the first year after my son died”.

Joy Borstein, Bennet’s mama


“This book provides the recognition that there is no one-size-fits-all and no set timeline for healing”.

April Gregoryk, Ethan’s mama


“A collection of heartfelt stories from loss parents that gives an authentic look into the trials and triumphs of the first year. It is at times tender, at times raw and at times humorous with one resounding message: you are not alone”.

Emily Wetherholt, Wyatt’s mama


“So many stories, all different, but somehow all the same”.

Jan Smith, Ben and Zach’s mama


“I am not new to grief; however, this book has been amazing for me. It has helped things come to light that I didn’t realize were lingering and holding me back, has allowed me to understand so much more about healing and has given me hope”.

Laurel Taylor, Brianna’s mama


“A book about grief, but more so a book about love”.

Karen Prisco, Elizabetta’s mama


“I have searched for a book that would get me, that I could relate to. I have read many, but this one is the one I was searching for all along”.

Tina Sunajko, Tapio’s mama


“I’m just loving this book. The grief of child loss is such a lonely journey and this book makes it less so. It’s good to know other people ‘get it’”.

Jacqui Hellyer, Leylynne’s mama



“A wonderful resource for parents and families of those who have lost a child. It is relevant to the loss of a baby or child from any point in pregnancy right up through adulthood”.

Saskia Williams, Eloise’s mama


“I have a feeling this is a book that I will be keeping within close reach, earmarking pages and going back to when I’m having ‘one of those days’ and I need a reminder that I’m truly not alone”.

Katie Stern, Toby’s mama
