About the Book

It’s difficult to comprehend that babies are brought into this world with the predestination to grieve. It seems unbelievable that an unborn child or a newborn baby could be set up to grieve and carry that burden throughout a lifetime. In Born to Grieve, author C. K. Vetsch explains how this can happen, shares these people’s stories, and offers hope for their situation.

Using her personal experiences as an unwanted child as a background, Vetsch explores the emotional abuse of unwanted children, the loss of a child, adoption, and abortion, among others, and discusses the consequences and the impacts. In each chapter, she presents general examples and offers a personal or specific anecdote to illustrate the effects and how one may heal from them.

In Born to Grieve, Vetsch helps those affected to look at their lives from a viewpoint of strengths rather than weaknesses. She communicates how it’s time to put down the burden and find wholeness in body, mind, and spirit.
