    THE LOSS OF AN ADULT CHILD

    I grew up in the village where Ninette and her family lived, so when she sent over her list about losing her son Tosh, I was utterly heartbroken for her. The death of a child is incomprehensible and, as she says, it's not the correct order of life, no matter their age. He was still her beautiful baby boy.

It's called BUT WHY: How to Answer tricky questions from kids and have an honest conversation with yourself. The source of the answers for BUT WHY? came from all over - the podcast, interviews with experts, conversations on Instagram but also from here on Mother of All Lists.
