My wife and I started reading books on the subject when we learned that the pregnancy had complications that doctors said was "lethal". After accepting the diagnosis, we wanted to be as prepared as we could without having been through a situation even close to this. This is one of two books that I wrote a review for; although we read many more. One was beneficial for both of us, but was targeted towards the mother. This was the first guide I read targeted towards the Dad.
It took a night to read, and touched on some things I thought I was the only one thinking. For example, some good friends of ours distanced themselves from us when they were aware of the situation, and Mr. Nelson's words helped me realize that I should not be angry about it. The idea I found to be most helpful was that the majority of people have good intentions, and to not take something the wrong way as it is not easy for others on the outside to be supportive in an uncomfortable topic.
