Holding Avery ~A Memoir Book Review
Holding Avery is a beautifully written memoir about a baby girl named Avery who never got to take her first breath, due to an umbilical cord accident. Baby Avery was a very much wanted little girl who was born to her Mommy, Heidi and her Daddy, Chris .
Heidi's story details her journey through the loss of her daughter and how Avery’s death rocked her world, turning a blissful existence into a real-life nightmare loaded with chaos and guilt. She explains how she coped with the guilt of her loss,and how she learned not to blame herself for it, and got onto the path to healing.
Avery's story is a heartbreaking one indeed that needed to be told. More often than not, when a baby is stillborn, there are well-meaning people who just say the wrong things, or they avoid the grieving parents because they don't know quite what to say.
