So much of what happens in the mind of a bereaved parent is kept quiet and left in the dark—almost as if it should be hidden. In Walk With Me, Jamie Stewart, who lost her son after birth in 2012, holds absolutely nothing back. In order to help others on their loss journey, Jamie openly shares hers.
Some roads in life are meant for solo exploration, and some should never be walked alone. The death of a baby is one such road. If you have experienced pregnancy or infant loss (or love someone who has), this book will hold your hand through the seemingly uncharted road of child loss. It will affirm many of the challenges loss-parents face, clarify what loss-parents need (and do not need), and deconstruct the backward way our culture handles grief and those in its grip.
Ultimately, Walk With Me is a love story. It’s a story not only about love but about loss and the hope we have in Christ, even when we find our hearts in the deepest and darkest pits of grief.
“If you have ever felt the ache of loving, then losing a child before having the chance to watch dreams unfold, you will find great comfort within the pages of this book. The captivating stories and tender lessons provide life-breathing messages of purpose and hope. You will quickly see that you are not alone. Your story is not over. Your child’s story is not over. Jamie’s journey builds courage to believe that it’s truly possible for loss to bring forth a wealth of new life.”
