Parents grieving the loss of an infant after an infant death have a new resource in Sharon Fox’s A Precious Loss (Redemption Press). Fox, a Texas-based certified grief facilitator, saw the need for a Christian-based book on grief recovery for those who have experienced a miscarriage, stillborn birth, Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), or the death of a child. Active in grief recovery ministry for almost twenty years, Fox developed a guide to meet this need using her experience, a study of Scripture, and interviews with parents.
Sharon Fox has also written Reframing Adoption, and is co-founder of the nonprofit Brave Penny, a ministry serving those who have lost a child. Fox says infant deaths are often acknowledged by others, with parents receiving support and compassion, while parents who miscarry do not receive this support. “The death of a child, no matter what the stage of development, wounds the souls of parents. The grief is compounded by the additional loss of dreams the parents had for the life of the child.”
While presenting a window into the grief process, Fox also includes a blueprint for coping with the loss. She outlines the emotions of grief, common physical reactions, the biblical grief model, and concrete steps and tips for moving toward peace and contentment. Fox says, “God understands the profound grief felt by parents from the loss of a child, because his child died too.” A Precious Loss is written with insight and deep compassion, and will be a valuable resource for grieving parents.
