One of the most devastating losses a family can experience is the loss of a child. Whether the loss is through illness, accident, drugs, suicide, or other tragedy, the pain is overwhelming and often paralyzing. And though we often think of loss as death, in our broken world there are many ways to suffer the loss of a child. This book discusses how a family can learn to cope with loss of a child due to not only death, but a custody battle, addiction, chronic illness, crime, and other issues where worldly dreams disappear. H. Norman Wright helps readers through the grieving process, and assists them in finding God’s grace and comfort during this very difficult time of life.
