In the summer of 2010 Rebecca Patrick-Howard woke up and showered, not knowing that her young son had passed away in his sleep. What followed was a parent's worst nightmare. There were no instructions on how to cope with the loss of a child. Rebecca soon discovered that dealing with the depression and sadness was just one hurdle that would have to be dealt with. None of the articles, books, and brochures she picked up warned her about the support groups that didn't seem to have a place for her, the friends who would abandon her, the insensitive and sometimes cruel things people would say, the anxiety that a subsequent pregnancy would bring, and the financial ramifications that would go far beyond the cost of burial. In Coping with Grief: The Anti-Guide to Infant Loss Patrick-Howard shares her own experiences with grief and includes the stories of others as well. Sometimes heart wrenching, sometimes traumatic, and sometimes even humorous; it covers the feelings, emotions, and experiences that go along with grief in perhaps the most comprehensive and current book out there on infant loss.
