First let me say that I never, in my worst nightmare, would have wanted to write a book on this subject. But because I did have the worst thing happen to me in my life, I wanted to let people who have never experienced the loss of a child have a better understanding of what life is like for the parents, a sibling, and family members after the loss of a child. If you have lost a loved one then I am very sorry for your loss. If you are a parent looking for advice, a relative, neighbor or friend wondering what to say and do, I hope my words help. This book isn’t only about our tragic accident, but our life, grief, my amazing son’s, Quinn and Will, and where I am today. I tell about how my husband and I got married, moved to Arizona away from all our family only to have them all come settle here with us. I give my opinion and make suggestions on how others can help a grieving family. I tell year by year how we struggle, and try to find a new normal. I also tell about our experiences with grief support groups, therapy and visits with mediums.Missing Quinn is written in two parts. In the first part you will read about my life and the tragic event that made me a grieving parent. I share stories of how I survived each day, month and year without my child. In part two I share suggestions and tell personal stories about grieving, support groups, and therapy. I also discuss my son’s disability, Sensory Processing Disorder, and offer resources and help for children with SPD. As you read, you will hear my raw sadness and anger. My hope is for the reader to understand how a tragedy like the one my family experienced changes the people we once were. I also wish for you to see that although things may never be the way they once were, they will be different, and there is hope.
