When I chose this book to read, I knew it would bring out feelings I thought were gone from a corner of my mind. I was right. So many things resonated with me as I read the author’s experience of losing a baby. I know this book will resonate with many women that have experienced this trauma in their lives. I also remember that “The hard part of it was grieving alone with no one to share my sorrow.” The author recognizes that this is often a problem for women who miscarry. “You feel so sad and devastated, but many times your friends and family don't get it. They don't realize how much love you can feel for a baby you never saw, met or held.”
It truly is a devastating experience in the life of a woman. It is a trauma that you carry all your life, no matter how long ago it happened to you. I still remember the pain and anguish that I felt. The author also mentions that the pain will lessen and the hurt subside. I know this and am also a witness that it is true. Do you forget? No, but it all becomes an experience of faith and love. You do keep going and become whole.
I enjoyed this book as it helped me in a way to heal a little bit more. I know it will help other women who have had or are suffering from this sad experience. This book was written to tell you that you are not alone and that there is hope. From Pain to Parenthood also shares the author’s experience through adopting. It will bring you new hope and ideas of what to expect from the system. Great job.
