Description - Changed by Lisa Jankowski
The loss of a child is the most devastating event a parent can face.
In this moving memoir Liza Jankowski, the mother of four children,
two boys and two still born girls, shares her experience with stillbirth
and the effects that go far beyond what people could ever imagine.
Dreams are destroyed. Lives are changed forever. The loss can seem
too hard to bear.
After a trouble-free pregnancy, Liza's first daughter Olivia was declared
dead at 41 weeks. Devastated and racked by guilt after deciding not
to have the baby induced earlier, Liza was desperate for comfort and
answers. If only? Why? What if? Her mind exploded with questions
and she felt isolated and alone in her grief.
In this emotive personal account, Liza shares her inner-most thoughts
and feelings about the loss of a desperately loved daughter and how
that loss changed her whole being. She discusses the impact on her
relationships, her subsequent pregnancy and what she ultimately
learned: devastating as it is, life does get better and the pain will ease.
Changed is a powerful combination of a mother's personal journey and
helpful information that will offer comfort, hope and understanding. It
is also the story of a mother's love for a child that remains long after
separation and death.
