It's not over in a week, a month or a year. The death of a child last forever. The impact on the family is deep and far-reaching. In this collection of a SIDS mother's 10-year series of essays, you'll explore first birthdays, anniversaries, surviving and subsequent children, marriage, friendships, jobs and more, all in the context of a SIDS loss.

About Getting Through Grief:

From the Foreword

"(Debbie's) words permit us to step inside her mind and come as close to experiencing the aftermath of SIDS as is possible for another person. From this sharing, we are all enriched and enlightened."

Thomas G. Keens, MD,

and Childrens Hospital, Los Angeles.

"...her extraordinary literary talent strikes just the right notes in her essays about feelings and relationships in the aftermath of SIDS, bringing comfort and understanding to people who read her work."

Barry Brokaw, SIDS Parent,
Director, SIDS Alliance
