Book Review: Losing Your Only by Dr. Debi Yohn

Losing Your Only by Dr. Debi Yohn is a helpful guide for parents or loved ones who have lost their only child.

Dr. Yohn is an international psychologist, author and speaker. This helpful e-Book is based upon her personal experience. When her only son, Levi, was killed in a car accident, her life took a different and unexpected path. Plunged into grief, she had to cope with the loss of her role as a parent.

In this moving narrative, Yohn shares the days, months, and years that have passed since Levi's death. In an effort to help others who have lost their Only, she discusses:

* the REAL journey--the four stages parents grieving the loss of their only child must go through
* the comfort she found in exploring spirituality and different belief systems
* the importance of celebrating the life of your Only and how it is okay to continue talking about your child after his passing
* Moving on
* How mothers and fathers might grieve differently
* How the loss of your Only affects extended family and friends
* The lessons she learned from Levi's passing

and much more!

Losing Your Only is a touching tribute to Levi. It will offer much needed support to those coping with the loss of an only child.

When Levi passed, I found little written on the subject of parents dealing with the loss of an only child. I am hopeful that Losing Your Only will help others through those dark days.

Thank you for including Losing Your Only in your blog posting.

For the Love of Levi.
