Longing for My Child
Reflections for Parents and Siblings after a Child's Death
Childhood death leaves parents, siblings, family, and friends devastated at a life lost too soon. In a series of touching profiles written by parents and siblings, the lives of infants, children, teenagers, and even adult children are remembered and celebrated. From miscarriage and murder to illness and accidents, families share feelings and memories of children they've loved and lost.
Accompanying meditations address the stages of grief and recount the real experiences of those living through them. Scripture verses provide spiritual comfort, and an appendix lists resources for the grieving. Most importantly, author Christine Lafser offers families hope that life can and will go on.
