Expecting Sunshine is an incredible and inspiring story shared by author, Alexis Marie Chute about her own journey of grief, healing and pregnancy after loss. I love this book because the husband is not forgotten and his feelings are expressed within the book.
It is a powerful and insightful book that I highly recommend for all our fellow parents who have experienced loss or for those who have had close friends or family experience loss for some insight on how they feel and how to help them through the grieving and healing process. 🌈
Wow this is a great read.
I was so happy to be part of the Virtual Book Tour and help promote Alexis Marie’s memoir. The book also contains a great amount of resources that are helpful and will be very helpful to anyone who has to endure this painful journey.
About the book:
“After her son, Zachary, dies in her arms at birth, visual artist and author Alexis Marie Chute disappears into her “Year of Distraction.” She cannot paint or write or tap into the heart of who she used to be—too caught up in mourning not only for Zachary but also for the future they might have had together. It is only when Chute learns she is pregnant again that she sets out to find healing and rediscover her identity—just in time, she hopes, to welcome her next child. In the forty weeks of her pregnancy, Chute grapples with her strained marriage, shaken faith, and medical diagnosis, with profound results. There is also a documentary about Alexis’ journey currently being screened all over the world.”
