I'm both glad and sad that you are here.
If you are here, it is likely that your life, or the life of someone close to you, has been impacted by the death of a baby, either during pregnancy or in early infancy. If so, I am truly sorry. If we were face to face, I would give you a hug, pour you a cup of tea, and invite you to sit at my kitchen table and share your story, as much as you wanted to.
Perhaps you are reeling from a recent loss. Perhaps it was some time ago, even years...but you never forget, do you? You move through it but you never "get over it." You never stop missing the missing piece of your heart and your family.
One of the most challenging aspects of moving through and beyond the loss of a baby is how to talk about him or her with your living children, whether born before or after your loss. Do you tell stories? Show pictures? Visit a cemetery or memorial site? What can be shared, both for your sake and the sake of your children on Earth?
One in Heaven was written for parents to share with their 4-to-8-year-old children, to paint a picture of a family on Earth who remembers their child in Heaven in a variety of ways. Tender and uplifting, One in Heaven shows us how the family ties of love are strong enough to withstand death, and how life on Earth is merely a beginning.
