A book for parents who have experienced the trauma of illness or death
Grief and guilt are the common denominators of all families who suffer from a loved one’s illness or death, whether the loved one dies or whether they survive. The parents of children who survive severe illnesses must often face the reality that the child they are taking home from the hospital is not the same one they took there. Even the parents whose child has survived an illness without residual complications must still go through the horror of seeing what had to be done in order for their child to survive. All these families go through great shock and great hurt.
