I Remember Mommy (Paperback)
The United States currently has the highest maternal death rate in the industrialized world. Black women are four times more likely to succumb to childbirth in the U.S. than White women, according to 4Kira4Moms, an organization devoted to addressing the maternal health crisis.
I Remember Mommy is dedicated to two of the author's brightest students and surrogate sons who lost their extraordinary mother, Kira, in the childbirth of her youngest child. This book not only addresses the loss of a mother in childbirth, but the grief and reflections a young child has when they lose their mother prematurely in any way.
This book allows young children and their families an opportunity to discuss grief in a heartfelt and meaningful way that's still easy to understand. In the end, we all feel the sentiment, "She should be here," when thinking of our loved ones.
