When she learns that her baby is no longer living, life takes a sudden, abrupt turn at the end of Heather's third pregnancy. In the painful days to come, a story slowly begins to unfold revealing the refining side of grief. As Heather faithfully journals the complex web of emotion and truth, seeds of hope and healing are planted. Follow along as joy begins to take root and grow as her story transparently unfolds.

Over 40 grieving mothers contributed to a bonus section at the end of the book by offering their candid, uncensored thoughts, feedback and insight to over 20 questions such as:
-Is it helpful for you when others bring up your loss, or would you rather avoid discussing it?
-Looking back, what do you wish your friends and family would have known that might have helped them to support you better?
-What kind of support did you find to be most comforting?
-What are some ways that you remember and honor your child as time goes by?
-How have you made sure your other children do not get neglected as you take the time to grieve?
-What advice can you offer in helping children though their grief of losing a sibling?
-How has the loss of your child affected your relationship with your spouse?
And many more. Hearing from a variety of voices and perspectives in these areas offers a unique opportunity to glimpse into the hearts and minds of others walking a similar path of grief.
