Naming the Child

I wrote this as a “gift book”—not in the conventional sense, it’s not exactly a coffee table book. But it was my hope that those who who knew somebody who is suffering in isolation would buy the book for them and take it to them. This simple act can open the door of conversation. It is a really good way to say, “I’m here, I’ll talk whenever you’re ready. I’m not afraid of the subject.”— Jenny

I received my copy from Jenny yesterday.  I can't tell you how beautifully written it is, or how the stories told are done so with beauty, dignity and grace...  I am completely honored and humbled that Maddux's story is included.  This is a must buy for everyone.  One day, you will eventually know somebody that has experienced the death of an infant.  Read this, and it can help you, help them.  Wish this book was around 4 years ago...
