Ask Dr. Gramma Karen: Afterthoughts on the Column, “Our Granddaughter Was Stillborn”

Dear readers,

“As always you provide clarification and a ton of resources. However as tough as it is, the grandparents need to find a way to respect the wishes of the parents. If they are expected to read certain books they must find a way to comply or come to an honest agreement with the parents on how to deal with situation. A thorny but important issue was left out of your answer.”
