Losing Your Only

I have just finished reading a book called Losing Your Only, written by Dr. Debi Yohn, Levi’s Mom.  Levi was her only child, and he died in a horrible car accident when he was twenty.  This is a very personal story, which helped Dr. Yohn discover her purpose - to motivate and support parents and others to live life to their highest potential. She puts all of her skill and experience into this wonderful book.  It is personal, and it is therapeutic.  It is lovingly and beautifully written.  For example:    
Before Levi passed, I had a textbook understanding of sadness, depression, and grief that I'd acquired from my doctorate in counseling psychology.  But my life experience has brought a new dimension to my knowledge.  That is why I am writing this book.  I hope my journey can help others with their grief, or at least help understand the intensity of the grief process that follows the loss of an only child.   

This book is particularly helpful for parents of only children who  have died, yet it is useful for anyone who has experienced the death of a beloved.  In fact it is for all of us, because no one escapes without facing the loss of a beloved at some time. I highly recommend Losing Your Only.                      

The digital version of the book is currently available at  http://losingyouronly.com/get-the-book/.  If you would like to be notified about the upcoming print and audio release, please visit http://losingyouronly.com/get-the-book/ and send Dr. Debi your email address.
Dr. Debi Yohn is an international psychologist, author and speaker with 32 years experience living and working on 3 continents.  She currently live in Huatulco, Mexico and travels the world working with her clients, writing and diversified business and charitable interests.

"Losing Your Only" is written from the heart to parents that have lost an only child. When I lost my son, I could not find anything written to help me through the grief. As a psychologist and a parents, I am hopeful that my words can help others. Thank you for allowing me to share.

For the Love of Levi.
