A Piece Of My Heart by Molly Fumia
The loss of a child to miscarriage, stillbirth, or infant death is a devastating experience to paretns who were anticipating the joy of a new presence in their lives. Although their feelings are real adn complex, there is often not an acknowledgment of the deep attachment the paretns had to this young life, and so they are ultimately denied a safe place to live through teir grievieng.
Molly Fumia provides that safe place where grieving can lead to healing. By telling her powerfully moving story --the loss of her wee-old son, Jeremy --sheaffirms the sacred right that all of us have to mourn the loss of children. She gives us hope that in dealing with the pain and honoring the grief process we all can eventually be healed.
