Finding the Gift after Loss

The epic journey of an emerging author:
Last week I wrote the afterword, this week I’m in tears writing the acknowledgment page. So many people believed in me more than I believed in myself.
The book is born. “Grieving Parents: Surviving Loss as a Couple” is no longer just a document on my computer but a BOOK to be published within less than 2 weeks!

Without giving it all away, here is the last sentence of the Acknowledgment:
“Last, but not least, I want to acknowledge my inspiration for this book: my daughters Ananda Mae and Amya Mirica. This book would not exist without the experience you honoured me with.”

  1. My husband and I lost our oldest child at age two and then a few years later had twins, got to keep our little girl but our son passed away before birth. It took a while to hit me because I got to keep one! We miss our little boys. I wrote a book too, it is a condolance book that explains life and death in terms of a caterpillar and butterfly. I would love to have you look at it, We are mother’s with empty arms and full hearts!

    1. Thanks for your comment and sharing your book with me, Ann. It looks cute! Is it also a softcover book or just kindle?
      Indeed, it’s an interesting journey of motherhood mixed with grief.
      You might also have seen that my book “Grieving Parents: Surviving Loss as a Couple” is due to be released next week. More info here:
      All Love, Nathalie
