We’re thrilled that Grieving Together is making its way into the hands of parents who need it after infertility, stillbirth, miscarriage, or the loss of a child. The greatest joy has been hearing from couples who are reading it together or talking about aspects of grief they might not have shared or understood before.
(In the words of Billy Collins’ poem on sending a book out into the world,
“stay out as late as you like,
don’t bother to call or write,
and talk to as many strangers as you can.”)
To learn more about Grieving Together, check out these resources:
Franco and I did a live webcast with Our Sunday Visitor to share more about why we wrote the book and how all of us can support people in our lives who are grieving. You can listen for free here.
OSV also created a free e-book on “How to Support Parents Who Have Lost A Child” (including some of my favorite parts of our resources for family and friends). Get the download for free!
A wonderful group of friends is helping us spread the word via our book launch team. Check out Rita’s interview at the Archdiocese of Baltimore. My friend Nancy invited me back on her Just One Small Thing podcast, where we shared more laughs than tears talking about marriage after loss.
Starting this week, the book launch team will be hosting giveaways on their blogs and social media, so stay tuned for your chance to win a copy for you or a friend.
(And I’ve got a special giveaway next week that you won’t want to miss.)
Till then, here’s a sneak peek from the prayers for miscarriage I wrote for the book – prayers for milestones and everyday moments of grief.
