Around fifteen thousand children die each year in Britain alone. This means that there are many more thousands of parents, relatives and friends, struggling to come to terms with their loss. To observers they may appear to be coping, but only they know the scars that never heal, and can see the inner part that is missing. There is no right or wrong way to grieve for a child. Each bereaved person must find the way that is right for them as an individual. Writing from personal experience, Betty Madill offers practical suggestions to help people embark on their own path of healing and acceptance. Her advice is touching, credible and sensitive to the individual's need to move on with their life, taking happy memories of their child with them, while working through their debilitating grief. This book is an invaluable source of comfort for all who find themselves in this situation. Together with practical ideas for dealing with the child's effects, or with feelings of guilt and helplessness, One Step at a Time combines personal recommendations, with recognized bereavement counselling advice.
