Giveaway Details: After Miscarriage: A Catholic Woman's Companion to Healing and Hope

Elizabeth Petrucelli, author of All That is Seen and Unseen, has been hosting a contest this month and After Miscarriage will be her final giveaway.

To enter to win After Miscarriage, you can simply leave a comment below, on this post (as simple as, "Pick me!") Your comment can be anything, but please be sure to leave some contact information (Facebook page, Twitter, Google +, a blog, your email address -- anything that will allow us to get in touch with you if you win!)

Comments on this post will be accepted until October 31st at midnight. A winner will be drawn at random from the comments on November 1st.

I hope that you never have a need to read After Miscarriage, but if you have experienced the loss of a baby, please know that you have my fervent prayers. If you have never suffered a miscarriage, you might consider entering the contest in order to win the book and give it away to a friend who may be in need.

Thanks for your interest in and support for After Miscarriage, and thank you, Elizabeth, for hosting the giveaway in this Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month.

This is me again -- just wanted to clarify, in case there is any confusion: Leave your comment here, on my blog. I will do the drawing and pass the name of the winner on to Elizabeth Petrucelli.

Thanks!

I'd love to win! I purchased a copy for a friend a while back but I've never purchased a copy for myself. I'd love to read it :)

Mandi Richards said...

I read your book after my first miscarriage and have since passed my copy on to a friend and bought at least three additional copies for others. I'd love to have another on hand because I know it's inevitable (unfortunately) that I'll have another chance to pass it on to someone in need. Thanks, Karen. richards.mandi @ gmail.com

Jennifer and Mandi, thanks!

I have had 3 miscarriages. My husband mentioned it the other night. I was surprised. We are very stoic and don't talk about bad stuff like that. He was thinking, we could have 8 children now instead of 5. They happened long ago, 16 years ago was the last one . . . but the regret is always there. I'll enter for a copy of the book. It would be a good resource for someone who has suffered recently.

PS. That book by Elizabeth looks wonderful. Can I win a copy of that one, too?

May we draw near to our Blessed Mother, who watched her Son suffer and die on the Cross, and stay with her awaiting His glorious resurrection. May our Lord bless us with a gift of hope, and may we never forget the precious holy innocents adorning the throne of God in heaven.

I love this book, Karen. It has been a great blessing. I would love to be able to give this away to other moms who need it.

Kate Hannick said...

I would very much love to receive and read this book. I have looked at it on Amazon but not bought it for myself yet. We suffered a loss just last month, and it has been rough trying to deal with it.

Even though it has been 3 years since my last of 3 miscarriages, I still struggle. I would love to have a copy.

Lena said...

I've lost five babies and would have loved this book as I healed.

I'm sure that it would continue to feed my soul. It would also be a great resource for my daughter and I as we care for bereaved mothers. (Visitation Birth Services)

I've only lost one baby, but it devastated me. The book looks intriguing and i'd love to read it! God bless!

Larissa Margaretha Maria said...

I certainly could have used this book several years ago and would definitely read it and pass it on were I to win it.

A great resource for supporting mothers through the Gabriel Project ministry.

Maria said...

I have had 3 consecutive miscarriages and at the time, couldn't find a good Catholic book on the topic. I'm so glad one was written! I would love to read this book and then pass it on to someone who may need it.

mrsf3andfamily said...

I've had so many friends and loved ones suffer from miscarriage even since I was a child and lost 6 siblings that way. This would be a great book to have.

AnneMarie Davis said...

I would love a copy of this book. Having been through this I would love to read a book from a catholic perspective

Lee said...

Not sure if my previous comment posted. I'd like to win.

Cay Gibson said...

Sharing this! I lost a baby on Palm Sunday April 1993. Karen knows how to reach me... ;-)

Conceiving Hope said...

Recurring miscarriages here as well. Thank you for offering this giveaway. I'd love to win a copy to read and to share. That said, for anyone else reading, I recently put together a giant compilation of Catholic resources for those going through miscarriage that can be found HERE

motheringspirit said...

Karen, I am not "officially" entering the giveaway since I already have (and treasured) my own copy. But I was just so glad to learn of your blog when a friend shared this giveaway on FB. Your book was highly recommend to me by several blogger friends after we lost a baby to miscarriage last year, and it was so helpful and healing to have a personal, Catholic perspective on this sorrow & grieving. I just wanted to reach out and thank you for the ministry of your words.

I could use this book right about now...
