Shortly after I wrote this Mommy Minute about Just Ordinary Moms, a group of women authors from the Granby area, I received an extremely poignant email. 

Barbara Goldstein of Farmington wrote:

I, too, along with many others like me, was once an “ordinary Mom.”  All  of that changed in the blink of an eye:  with a phone call in the night, a doorbell ringing,  a diagnosis given by a serious looking doctor, or any of so many other causes that have taken our children from us.

She went on to tell me that she, too, wrote a book, along with eight other women she met in a Long Island support group who had a lost a child in their teens or 20's.  A revised edition of Beyond Tears: Living After Losing A Child was published in 2009.

This book, which can be purchased on Amazon, aims "to give comfort and direction to bereaved parents in a chorus of supportive voices."

Described as "honest" and "courageous", the book speaks to parents struggling through their darkest hours.
