Grief cannot be defined in one simple sentence, as grief itself is not simple. It is a vast and

longevity, and intensity.

I learned many moons ago that there is no such thing as coincidence and everything is a beautiful synchronicity in our life. Good Grief: The A to Z Approach of Modern Day Grief Healing is a book for your grief journey, but the book itself has been on its own unique journey to be able to be held in your hands today.
Grief is closely associated with death but can be triggered when we lose anything with which we have an emotional connection: a job, a relationship, health. Much that can be read about the grieving process is outdated and can serve an injustice to our rapidly evolving, modern society. In conjunction with recent medical and societal advancements, new and complex presentations of grief have arisen. As a result, our own journey through grief must also evolve in order for us to effectively heal and even flourish as a result of our experiences surrounding loss.

Parents can feel overwhelmed, stressed, and even grieve as we realise the life we once knew is lost.
