So often people do not know how to support a friend after their child dies, so rather than doing something, they do nothing at all. Knowing what to say and do to help is really only something you know how to do well if you've experienced the situation yourself. Friends and family members feel helpless and are unsure how to help and what to say after a friend or family member has suffered the loss of a child. Kimberly's book gives a powerful insight and offers specific instructions needed to become the support system the parents and siblings will require in the first year, which can powerfully impact the healing process. So, Kim Calabrese wrote this book because when she needed it to share with her family after her daughter died, it didn't exist. Kimberly Calabrese lost her daughter, Paris, when her baby was just six months old. During this incredibly painful time in her life, Kimberly did not have a lot of support because her friends and family did not know what to do. So, Kimberly chose to pretend it didn't happen, moved to another state, and buried Paris's death deep inside her heart for over ten years. However, Kimberly discovered the harsh reality that the loss of a child can never be forgotten—no matter how far you run or how busy you are. She has since dedicated herself to healing others who have suffered a tragic loss. This book is a step-by-step guide for helping grieving parents beyond sending flowers and dropping off a casserole.
