Book Review: Waiting for Answers by Betsy Haid

Waiting for Answers

4 out of 5

This book is a very quick read at 125 pages, but those pages are packed full of wonderful information. The subject matter of this book is primarily dealing with the loss of a child. The author writes from personal experience, having lost a daughter in a car accident.

The book describes not only the emotional things that grieving parents go through, but also the physical and spiritual. She is very open and honest about what worked and what didn’t, what she did right and what she wished she hand done differently. Throughout the book she continually reminds you that your reaction is yours alone. Responses to grief are very individual – just like a finger print.

I’ve not experienced first-hand the traumatic loss of a child, but I still appreciated this book. It was eye opening to read about how it feels to be the one grieving the unimaginable. I feel better equipped to reach out to someone that has lost the most valuable thing in their life. I would highly recommend this book to those wanting to minister to grieving parents and also to grieving parents themselves.
