They are gone too soon—precious little ones lost through miscarriage, stillbirth, and infant death. However brief their lives, they are not soon forgotten. And the pain of their loss is very real to parents and family. This book is a tenderly crafted message of comfort and counsel for those who have lost—or for those who know someone who has lost—little children.
Author Sherri D. Wittwer, who knows the poignant reality of such a loss, writes from a Latterday Saint perspective of special gospel insights that can bring comfort and aid in the healing process as well as strengthen faith in the Lord. Wittwer draws on her own, as well as others’, moving experiences and reflections as she discusses the grieving process for parents and siblings and the spiritual resolution that makes acceptance possible. She portrays the pain, disbelief, anger, acceptance, and finally the peace of those who have endured this difficult trial. With them, you’ll come to understand the kindness and mercy of a loving Father in Heaven who has promised a special place in His kingdom for those precious “angel babies.”

About the Author
Sherri Devashrayee Wittwer, a lifelong resident of Salt Lake City, holds a degree in English from the University of Utah. When she lost a son through miscarriage, she began looking for Church books as a source of comfort. “To my surprise,” she recalls, “there were no available books that dealt with this specific sort of grief. I desperately wanted answers, and I was sure there must be many others like my husband and me. So the idea of this book was born.”
In addition to writing, Sherri’s loves include reading, cooking, sports, and teaching. She and her husband, David, have two children.
