Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Now and then the joyous anticipation of a child's birth transforms into the disappointment and grief of a miscarriage, tubal pregnancy, stillbirth, or early infant death. Having experienced three miscarriages and the death of an infant son, Kathe Wunnenberg well knows the pervasive and enduring anguish of losing a child. A compendium of thematically appropriate devotions, Grieving The Child I Never Knew arose from her personal journey through sorrow and her desire to offer other parents in her place a wise and tender companion when their hearts have been broken, their dreams abruptly terminated, and their aspirations disrupted by the loss of a child. Each devotion includes a passage of scripture, a prayer, "Steps Toward Healing" questions, and a space for journaling. There are also comforting readings for holidays and special occasions. If you, or someone you know, is suffering the grief of a lost child, then Grieving The Child I Never Knew can be a means toward acquiring comfort, solace, acceptance, and hope.

    Highly Recommened - My lifeline during a very dark time

    This book was instrumental to my recovery after the loss of our child. There was a pain so deep, I felt no one could possibly understand, however this book helped me see the light at the end of my tunnel. The clarity I found was life changing- it didn't make my loss any easier- but helped me cope and recover in a healthy manner. I feel like this book helped save my life and have purchased it for friends who, unfortunatley, have been in the same situations. This book is a God-send to women struggling with this type of loss.

    My only source of comfort after a miscarriage

    When I miscarried at 12 weeks after my first IVF cycle, this book was my lifeline and only comfort. The author completely understands this type of loss, having experienced many miscarriages and a stillbirth herself. I found myself underlining entire chapters, and using the prayers she provided at the end of each devotional when I could not pray on my own. I felt like I had a friend in this book at a time when I never felt more alone.

    Best book out there

    This book is the best book out there that deals with the heartache of losing an unborn child. It really saved me from a life of depression, and helped me thru a very dark time. I would recommend this book to any and everyone who has experianced this kind of loss.

    Life Saving

    This book is helping me so much through the grief process after the stillbirth of my son. All of the feelings that I feel are addressed in this book from Forgiving God to answering the question of How Many Children Do You Have. Not only have I read it I sent it to the three people closest to me so that they can understand my thoughts and feelings.
