The grief of miscarriage, stillbirth, and newborn loss is often misunderstood and frequently ignored. Little One Lost: Living with Early Infant Loss shows from Scripture that these littlest ones are not really lost.
Glenda Mathes shares her own miscarriage story and the stories of others who have experienced the pain of early infant loss or infertility. The author also explores avenues of acknowledging loss, finding comfort, grieving with hope, and healing pain. Heartbroken or victimized individuals can benefit from the reflections on grief or forgiveness. Short chapters make the reading easier to grasp for those in acute stages of grief. Saturated in Scripture, this book helps anyone better understand the various aspects of early infant loss and comfort those who mourn the loss of a little one.
Helpful for those struggling with the questions that occur following infant loss, and hopeful because of Christ, Who loses no little ones.
