It’s not fair, and there is no happy ending to this kind of story; you will probably shed a tear while reading it. But Cobb successfully walks the fine line between dwelling on the child’s pain and wrapping things up too succinctly...

Synopsis

Some time ago, we said good-bye to Mommy. I am not sure where she has gone.

Honest and straightforward, this touching story explores the many emotions a bereaved child may experience, from anger and guilt to sadness and bewilderment. Ultimately, Missing Mommy focuses on the positive―the recognition that the child is not alone but still part of a family that loves and supports him.
