As you all know I like to feature great resources for families that have lost a child. These resources can't bring your child back, but they can help comfort you.
I found a lot of comfort through reading books, written by others that had lost a child too. I felt like I knew them, and could relate to almost every page of the book. You don't want anyone else to feel the pain of losing a child, but there is comfort in knowing that you are not alone.
This last year has been very exciting for me, because two close friends wrote books about losing a child. I am so proud of both of them. The first was written by my friend Lori, and it is called Wandering Purgatory. We featured it here.
The second book is called Unexpected Goodbye: When your Baby Dies. My friend Angela wrote this book, and just recently released it.
Angela lost her beautiful daughter Charlotte in May of 2010. Just like everyone else that loses a child (me included), she immediately looked for some sort of guide to tell her what to do next. There really isn't a protocol for what to do when your child dies.
