by Shelley Hankins
"They wanted me to stay. They wanted her to go. All I wanted was to hold her. Smell her. Sing to her. If these kind strangers had ripped my beating heart out and held it before my eyes, it couldn't have hurt more. This was only the first taste of letting go. We walked through pain and loss by grace alone, and we learned the bitterness and the sweetness of letting go."

"So much love and faith. A touching story of God’s grace and how a beautiful woman turned great sorrow and loss into love and understanding. I would recommend everyone read this book, whether they have suffered such great loss or not. Shelly has poured out her heart and soul in such a graceful way as to help others who may have suffered a loss as great as her own family has suffered."
"Loved reading your story. Precious memories. Although I never lost a child who had been physically born, I did lose four. Sharing your story was brave."
"Touches the emotions and very soul. Finding peace and love even in the midst of the storms of life. Finding hope through despair. The loss of a child- such an unbearable burden. I haven’t experienced that particular burden. But even so my comparably minor burdens resonated with this-the feelings of grief and despair- yet through it all experiencing our Saviors intimate love, comfort."
