Item Description...
The death of a child leaves parents, siblings, family, and friends devastated at a life lost too soon. Author Christine O'Keeffe Lafser addresses the intense emotions faced by those who have lost a child and invites the reader to take a journey of faith and build a new life. In a series of touching profiles written by parents and siblings, the lives of infants, children, teenagers, and 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 grief-support resources. Most importantly, Lafser offers families hope that life can and will go on.

Publishers Description
A companion for the journey through grief
"I keep waiting to hear the bang of the screen door, the thump of schoolbooks landing on the dining-room table, and the creak of the refrigerator door. I didn't even realize that I was waiting for those familiar sounds that I won't hear again."
--excerpted from the book Christine O'Keeffe Lafser has endured the deaths of four of her children. In "Longing for My Child," she offers her own reflections as well as those of grieving parents and siblings in the hope that they will provide reassurance to others in their grief, inspire courage and perseverance, and allow glimmers of hope to shine through. "If you cannot read this book, someone must read it to you--gently. Written by one pierced by life's sharpest arrows, a bearer and mourner of departed children, this book can be our companion as we go into the unknowable."
--Deacon Patricio Torres, St. Paul's Catholic Church, Virginia "This is a book filled with wisdom and strength. It reminds grieving parents and siblings that they are not alone, that God is with them, and will help them, as they travel from a state of emptiness and near-despair to the point where their hearts are once more filled with peace and they realize that life exists after death."
--Robert N. Craig, O.F.M. Cap., hospital chaplain
