    My husband and I have faced unexplained infertility for about 4

    My husband and I have faced unexplained infertility for about 4 years but a few months ago, we were elated to find out I was pregnant. After only a short time, I miscarried and we were heartbroken. After our loss, a friend recommended this book to me. It was so helpful in validating our loss and working through the grief. It is very thoughtfully written. Even now when another wave of grief hits me, I can pick it up and read a little and know that I am not alone. I never realized how miscarriage is often such a "lonely" grief, so little is spoken or written about the pain of it. I would highly recommend this to anyone facing that grief and pain.

    A friend gave me this book years ago after my second miscarriage

    A friend gave me this book years ago after my second miscarriage. I have a since had a healthy child and a third miscarriage. I am generally out of touch with my emotions. This book helped me identify what I was feeling and go through a healthy time of grieving in each situation.

    highly recommend this book

    I have had three miscarriages in the past. I read this book a few years ago, and it was one of the most helpful books I've ever read! Since then my husband and I have been blessed with a healthy baby boy. He's two and a half now. God is faithful!!!!!
