I Have No Intention of Saying Good-bye

Twenty-five sets of parents explain what happened to their child or children and how, afterwards, they channeled their grief constructively by setting up memorials for their child or children, working as volunteers, getting their cause through the legislature and, for some, turning to spirituality. In addition to helping themselves, these parents also help others and give advfice to those still having difficulty living in a world without their child. Photos of most of the children are also in the back of the book to get an idea of what they looked like. Those not bereaved will find this book helpful in learning how to deal with and what to say to a grieving parent.
