My Three Kids

My three adorable kids . . . before I ever knew they would become mine!

I am the mother of three children whose birth mother died of cancer when they were young. When I met them, they were ages twelve, ten, and eight, all grieving in very different ways. I have seen first hand the pain and confusion that accompanies childhood loss. This book communicates those real emotions. With tender illustrations and prayerfully selected text, Emily Lost Someone She Loved leads children back into a realization of the true heart of God for them. It’s a book that can be read over and over again, restoring faith in God, and hope for the future.

Writing this book was a redemptive process for me. It’s the book I wish had been available to me when I was trying to raise three grieving children. I was unequipped, overwhelmed, and often frustrated. I didn’t recognize, at the time, what my children needed most from me. I hope you will see in Emily Lost Someone She Loved a life-giving way forward for families in the midst of devastating loss.
