I'll Hold You in Heaven: Healing and Hope for the Parent Who Has Lost a Child Through Miscarriage, Stillbirth, Abortion or Early
The foundation of hope for any human dilemma or, in fact, for any human disobedience will always be drawn from God's Word-not from human reasoning or happy-talk philosophizing. The answer to your deepest pain or most grievous heart cry lies in Scripture. What then, should be your first question?
Perhaps the best place to begin is with the simple query: Was my unborn child, in the fullest sense of the meaning, actually a human being? That question must be settled with confidence and personal certainty. God's answer gives rise to an amazing basis for hope-an expectancy never before anticipated as possible. So let's discover what the Creator Himself has to say on the subject.
Reviews of: I'll Hold You in Heaven: Healing and Hope for the Parent...
I purchased this book not to long ago for my daughter and myself. My daughter Ashley was only 18 at the time and was weeks away from giving birth to what would have been her first little girl, we already had a name, a crip, diapers, and clothing. Sadly her daughter was born stillborn, besides this being her first child she would have also been my first granddaughter, we were both heart broken and didn't know how to handle our emotions, we were devastated, so hurt! I just couldn't understand why or who to blame, I was so angry that I wanted to blame someone, I wanted to lash out and scream at someone but who? I finally decided to read this book which helped to in dealing with the death of my first grandbaby, during this reading I think I finally cried so much that I was able to get a grip on life and understand that somethings happen in which we have no control of. Beside me reading the book I read it with my daughter who sadly is still struggling with the death of her daughter, I'm hoping that she will eventually take the time to read this being I honestly believe this book will help her as it did myself. For anyone who is dealing with the loss of a child I would recommend this book 100%.
I bought this book for a dear friend of mine, whose child was stillborn at full-term. It was heartbreaking, and this book was such a wonderful tool to help her embrace Corbin (her lost son), while still being able to later welcome Isabella (her daughter) with a whole heart. I highly recommend this book to anybody who has lost a child through miscarriage, abortion, or stillbirth.
Until you lose a child, you will not fully understand the power and strength of I'll Hold You in Heaven: Healing and Hope for the Parent Who Has Lost a Child Through Miscarriage, Stillbirth, Abortion or Early. No matter what the circumstances were in which your loss occurred, Debbie Heydrick gently guides you through answering some of your toughest questions that are more of a spiritual issue. Those who have dealt with such a loss often struggle to find inner peace, to find understanding as to why God would allow their loss, they wonder if the child is in Heaven and the author took great care in providing scripture and other Biblical reference to comfort those grieving over a child. This book is among a few which as well written and makes a good book of comfort for parents who have lost a child or even a family member or friend dealing with someone who had a loss. For those affected indirectly this book is just as important to help you to help someone else and to comfort them to know that one day they will hold their child in Heaven. I am speaking from experience and this book was extremely helpful to me.
