Product Description

Beginning in 2006, Neonatal Intensive Care nurse, Victoria Leland, RN, found her life remarkably intertwined with five mothers whose premature babies died in her NICU. After she witnessed each of these mothers struggle alone in grief, Leland brought these women together and created an informal support group, which they fondly called their "Good Grief Group." Their regular gathering, sharing, and volunteerism immensely helped each woman, and also helped them become "angels" to others experiencing the heartbreak of infant death.

Inspired by their stories, Leland compiled A Gathering of Angels, a collection of the wisdom these five mothers gained by opening their hearts and sharing their feelings and experiences on twenty-two different aspects of grief.

Although diverse in their ages, religions, experiences, and professions, these grieving mothers and their NICU nurse share their intensely personal stories in ways that create an incredibly universal book that will speak to readers from all walks of life. Parents who grieve the loss of a baby will find validation, hope, and consolation. Those trying to assist a loved one who has lost a baby will find understanding about parental grief and will be empowered to more effectively help their loved one experiencing this unique type of grief.

No one should grieve alone. Follow these women on the path they forged and let A Gathering of Angels become an angel to you on your own grief journey and inspire you to become an angel to someone else in need.

Publisher's Description

Author Vicki Leland was a nurse in a busy Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) in 2006--a particularly tough year--when she met five families whose babies had died in the NICU. They touched her life in unexpected and inspiring ways, and they became "angels" to--souls who appear in our lives at times of crisis and walk alongside us as we journey through grief.

In A Gathering of Angels, Leland has collected writings from these five women on different aspects of grief. The result is a heartfelt book that shows how real people respond to grief. The women share their intensely personal stories, creating an incredibly universal book that will speak to readers from all walks of life who have lost a baby. Reflections include: Feeling Robbed, Guilt, Grieving Mothers vs. Grieving Fathers, My Faith Has Been Tested, Peace...and the Sundial.
