The death of a child is a horrific and heartrending moment in a parent's life, a time where no words can be used, because it is totally inexpressible. Yet, somehow, Dr. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross does find the words, and she does so by doggedly and mercifully examining children and death.

El libro explica de un modo coherente, sencillo y práctico todo lo que sucede alrededor antes, durante y después de la muerte de un hijo.

El hecho de que el niño moribundo acepta de mejor forma su muerte que los adultos y que éstos se sumergen en la depresión es entendible y fue la base para que la autora creara este libro.

Explica detalladamente los procesos por los que se pasan cuando se tiene un hijo moribundo y fallece, ya sea de forma repentina o esperada. Así como el duelo y las aceptacione...more
En pocas palabras es un libro hermoso, donde el significado de la muerte cambia radicalmente, donde se puede creer que cada ser humano tiene un proposito en este mundo y cuando se van es porque lo han cumplido aunque sea dificil de entender... simplemente me encanto, en este libro se cuentan historias verdaderas de familias que perdieron inesperada o esperadamente a sus niñios y salieron adelante como mejores seres humanos.
A great Book for anyone in the hard times to face a son or a daughter's death.
