“Losing a child is an unspeakable loss. Instead of holding your little one in your arms, you have suddenly become part of a club no on would ever want to join. How do you navigate the pain? How does your marriage survive such grief? Candy has been there, and in this book she will tenderly walk you down a path to healing, hope, and love.”

-Sheila Walsh, author of It’s Okay Not to Be Okay

Candy McVicar was blindsided by the death of her baby, which opened her eyes to the dark world of grief and trauma. Her subsequent infertility and a late miscarriage compounded her sorrow, making it difficult to survive with hope. Amazingly, she navigated grief and experienced healing by discovering new ways to love through loss.

  • Discern love languages for you, your spouse, and children
  • Inventory your grief process and invest in your own wellbeing
  • Be a good friend and provider to someone grieving
  • Consider what gifts may be found and shared thruogh your journey
