"Emily Graham has eloquently captured the feelings and emotions that swirl through both our hearts and our heads when it comes to the death of a child. She authentically shares the panic and sorrow as well as the joys and quiet whispers that easily bring tears with the turn of every page.

There is a connection between any two souls who know the winding path of grief, and Emily has manifested it powerfully in the words she has chosen to communicate her story. This book will touch your heart and open a space for healing."

"Confessions of Child Loss is a deeply personal and moving, heartfelt look at grief and child loss. Emily not only reminds others they are never alone, especially in their darkest hour, but she also provides hope and yes, even joy as she shares that our connection to our beloved children continues in powerful ways if we can only allow ourselves to believe. The journey of grief is a spiritual trek unlike any other. This book will be a welcome companion to all on the windy road of healing."

    A Parent's Worst Nightmare

    dsc 5482 removebg preview

    Child loss plunges you into a chaos, destruction, and darkness that is impossible to imagine or understand, until you’ve experienced it. When Emily Graham’s 7-year-old son, Cameron, died unexpectedly, she was thrust into a life she didn’t choose or want. She shares the heart wrenching pain, guilt, fear, and anger that almost consumed her.

    Walk with Emily as she claws her way back to life, seeking answers to the most pressing questions: Why? Where did my child go? Who am I now? How do I even do this? Witness a new relationship unfold as she realizes her son isn’t gone. He still exists, just in a different way.

    Confessions of Child Loss provides a raw, honest look into life as a bereaved parent. It pulls back the curtain on all the things no one talks about, but every parent needs to know.

    What Parents Are Saying

    Image

    "Emily’s honesty and bravery to speak so candidly about how it feels to be a bereaved parent is appreciated. We hide so much deep inside ourselves mainly due to others not being able to relate to us if they have not also lost a child. Confessions is a perfect title. It is candid, real and very gentle to read. Thank you for giving so much of yourself to others who are living through the unimaginable."

    - Karen M.
    Bereaved Mom

    "This is the most relatable grief book I have read. Other grief books gloss over the early days and focus only on hope and healing, but in the early days healing was not a goal. Emily remembers and articulates those complicated feelings with clarity. When my daughter died, I just wanted to know where she was. This book doesn’t shy away from looking for them, believing, and then knowing."

    - Ellie P.
    Bereaved Mom & Living With Grief Member

    "I really enjoy Emily’s insight and I knew I would appreciate this book. It made me laugh and cry. I recognized so much of my own emotions and thoughts. There is also hope in Emily’s writing."

    - Bonnie W.
    Bereaved Mom

    "This book is an easy read with big impact. I found it helpful to know that the feelings I have had and the emotions I experience are not abnormal. Also, that grief changes and becomes a part of who we are, and it doesn’t necessarily have to be a bad thing. We can grow with it and become amazing new people because of and in spite of it."

    - Andrea K.
    Bereaved Mom & Living With Grief Member

    Image

    "I read grief books to either find validation in my feelings and thoughts, find ways to keep moving forward or that focus on the ongoing connection with my child who has died.

    Not only does [this book] help the bereaved parent tackle the feelings they hide from the world. It also helps those around them to notice what may be hiding in plain sight. This book puts perspective on how a bereaved parent changes after the death of their child, how their thoughts, actions and decisions go through a metamorphosis which inexplicably changes the very essence of their being."

    "I loved it. I cried for the first 22 pages. It was filled with very useful information on how to navigate this life-long journey I am on. I know I am not alone, and my child is right beside me."

    "Emily is a fantastic grief coach, and I've learned a lot from her. This book is filled with helpful pearls of wisdom and messages of hope. Thank you for writing this book."

    - Jennifer D.

    "Though my experience was different, the emotions are the same; Emily is six years ahead of me on this path and she provides good insight as to what may lie ahead, as well as helpful ways to process and manage issues and feelings that come up. This book is relatable, and it makes you feel like you aren't alone or crazy. I particularly liked the chapters on mediums and signs."

    - Marci P.
    Bereaved Mom & Living With Grief Member

    "This book is more real and honest than many other grief books I’ve read, and it explains our goal in this better. I really loved the way you explained and provided proof that our children are still here. It’s the only peace I have about this whole experience."

    - Mary H.
    Bereaved Mom & Living With Grief Member

    Image

    "This book takes you on a psychological journey of emotional challenges that is honest and open. Emily tells her story in an authentic way that makes it easy to read and relate to. The trauma is an additional part in parallel to the grief that many books do not address. Thank you for sharing this with us. I am sure it will help others who feel they have gone crazy."

    - Sherri D.
    Bereaved Mom & Living With Grief Member

    "It brought me to tears more than once. Emily doesn’t try to sugarcoat the grief and pain. She also offers hope that living “with” grief can still be a beautiful life with happiness and joy. This is a true story from a real mom who has been through hell and came out carrying buckets of water to help others. This is a needed book for anyone going through the loss of a child."

    - Cindy D.
    Bereaved Mom & Living With Grief Member

    Image

    "This book helped me know it’s OK not to be OK, and that I must take care of me. The emotions I feel are normal, and I am not alone. Anyone who has lost a child should read it. I know my daughter is not gone. She is with me always, and her signs tell me she is still here. Family members should read this book also. It provides great insight into what we are going through."
