This is the searingly honest account of the death of a baby and of a father's struggle to come to terms with the finality of his loss. The author deals honestly with the endless round of medical procedures, anguished relatives, stunned friends. Without melodrama or self pity, he relates how it felt to have a memorial service for a life that was less than one day. In the end, this is a book about tragedy that refuses to wallow in tragedy but finds, instead, a bedrock of life-affirming joy.

From the Publisher:

A most tender and informative book about expanding our concepts of life love and death.

From Library Journal:

This moving account of the death in utero of Church's second child also reveals the development of a deeply shared spiritual as well as physical relationship with the woman who became his wife and the mother of their children. Church, active in Unity Church and the son of a charismatic Episcopal priest, shares his New Age Christian beliefs regarding the unborn child, angels, and the possibility of interaction with the deceased within the course of ordinary life. But these do not intrude: the work can be read with profit regardless of one's beliefs, as long as one wants to see tragedy turned to victory. Recommended for public libraries.
