    I have several friends and relatives who have lost a child and they each have gone through the grieving process but in their own way. I too, have gone through the grieving process after losing numerous loved ones, but I knew in my heart it was not the same as losing a child. As I read through this book I began to understand a little bit more of the pain that a parent faces each day and how they begin to cope with their loss. The poems and references to bible passages provide hope and comfort. I have given several copies to friends and it seemed to bring them comfort to know that they were not alone. While a parent will forever be changed after the loss of their child, Karen illustrates how, with time, one may come to terms and cope with their loss. Thank you for sharing your story so others may have hope.

    I have two dear friends that lost a child and had shut themselves off for years. I wanted a book that would help me see what they were going through. I recently found "I Cry to Understand" and it is a tell all book from a parent's perspective. It shows the daily struggles of both mother and father, and the strength that it takes to get thru a single day. I found "I Cry to Understand" very enlightening, it helpled me better understand my grieving friends ongoing battle with their loss. Prior to reading this book I was unable to talk to her (which was almost impossible before) about her loss but now with what I have learned from this book I am able to talk to them and I can see in their eyes that they realize that I have gained some understanding of their pain. Although I will never know the pain they go through each and every day, we can sit and we can talk and they can let some of their pain and anquish out, if only for that moment. I will pass this book on to them... More > because it shows the strength it takes to make it thru 1 day, let alone a life time. "I Cry to Understand" has given me the strength not to give up on the ones you love.< Less
