9781452582283: How to Survive the Worst That Can Happen: A Parent's Step by Step Guide to Healing After the Loss of a Child

Sandy Peckinpah’s sixteen-year old son woke up with a fever and was dead the next morning of bacterial meningitis... her life changed forever. She found herself in the depths of unimaginable despair. Then, someone gave her a journal, and writing opened her journey of self-discovery in learning how to live life without her beautiful child. Words illuminated her path of discovery and she began to document the things that helped her, and others like her, to find resilience. This is a practical, inspirational guide to coping with the many facets of bereavement; learning how to talk about your loss, the aftermath of sorrow, handling fear and anger, helping your living children adjust, strengthening your marriage, experiencing miracles, and the promise that you will regain a quality of life where you’ll feel joy once again. If you’ve lost a child or know someone who has, this story is one you’ll relate to and find comfort in knowing you’re not alone. Sandy is a mother who has experienced it, and she’s a Certified Grief Recovery Specialist® from the Grief Recovery Institute® in Los Angeles.

About the Author:

Sandy Peckinpah discovered the power in storytelling when she was inspired to write her first book after her daughter was born with a facial defect, a cleft. Rosey the Imperfect Angel was a magical fairy tale that focused on the beauty of imperfection. The fairy tale was recorded as a CD, produced by Tony Award Winner, Michael Alden and starred the voice of actress and former SAG President, Melissa Gilbert (best known for "Little House on the Prairie" The CD made it all the way to the Grammy Ballot in 2009. Her second book, Chester the Imperfect All Star, followed with the same media attention. Her fairy tales continue to be used in schools, hospitals, and clinics to raise awareness and help children with self-esteem. After the death of her child, Sandy's passion was to write a book that could help parents through such a devastating loss. In addition to writing, she works as a real estate agent and also co-hosts a weekly radio show, "Passion by Design" on AM Talk Radio. She focuses on projects that make a difference in people's lives. Sandy lives in sunny Southern California with her husband and children.
