While in the third trimester of pregnancy, Shannon Potsiadlo faced the heartbreaking diagnosis that her baby had a rare condition, endangering the baby as well as her own health. As a result of these complications, Shannon birthed and said goodbye to her baby during the twenty-sixth week of pregnancy. She didn’t know how she would ever recover from the devastating heartbreak of this loss. Battling grief and depression, Shannon began journaling as a way to process her feelings and waves of emotions.

Years later, when faced with another heartbreaking miscarriage at eight weeks, Shannon began writing again and became moved to share her experiences of grieving with others. 

Be Still My Grieving Heart shares her personal experiences of pregnancy loss, her struggle through grief, and the recovery of her spirit through healing and self-care. Through years of writing, counseling, meditation, support from family and friends, and other methods of healing, Shannon learned love can grow from loss.

Be Still My Grieving Heart will be available December 17, 2020.
