This was an excellent book that helped me through my early miscarriage. Most people treated me like I shouldn't be upset at all and made me feel like I was stupid. Through this book, I was able to find my voice and know that my baby DID matter. I named my baby just like Elizabeth recommended in this book and I feel so much better because I did this! I recommend this book to anyone who has suffered an early miscarriage!
