About this product
- DescriptionTwo births, two tragedies. A family battered but resilient and searching for the answers they need to bring them solace and help them heal. When the birth of their first baby goes devastatingly wrong, Jessamy and Luke's grief is complicated by the perceived guilt they each carry. Meaningful communication between them is lost and their marriage deteriorates. A memorial service provides the opening needed for the couple to be honest with each other. Secrets are revealed and love rediscovered, but when the one thing Luke hoped for above all else becomes a reality, their joy is short-lived. It brings a new complication that threatens to destroy their fragile marriage. Birth, death, forgiveness, and acceptance are the warp and weave of Jessamy and Luke's story. But most of all, Absent Children is about love - the love between a man and a woman, and the love of parents for their children, present and absent.
