Many couples live with the ache of not being able to have children. Malcolm and Nick Cameron are writing from such a background themselves. This book tells of their struggles as they coped with years of infertility and will take you through the story of their miscarriage and the task of piecing their lives back to together afterwards. Throughout their ups and downs, and amidst the heartache, Malcolm and Nick have been carried through by God, and emerged on the other side stronger than before. This book will help you whether you are going through a similar situation or if you have a friend or family member that is facing the heartache of longing for, or losing, a baby.
As Christians too often we are unwilling to share our experiences with others, not realising that there are countless couples in the same position, longing for a child, confused by 'why them'. Here Malcolm and Nick Cameron have produced an honest and real account of their experience. They do not claim to have the answers as to how you should deal with infertility or miscarriage, but they can point you to the one who does, our Heavenly Father who never leaves us, and draws alongside us in our times of sorrow and pain and is there to pick us up when ever we fall.
'This book is an honest, down-to-earth story of a journey through the pain of childlessness - frustration in the efforts of overcoming this ache and an eventual coming to terms with life as it is, rather than the way we want or expect it to be.'
Well known author and speaker
'This book is not for the faint-hearted. It's written for those who are suffering the intense pain of bereavement in childlessness. It's raw, real and compulsory reading for those who want to enter in and understand something of the pain some childless couples are called to endure. Sometimes God miraculously answers prayers for a child, but the complete answer hasn't come yet for Malcolm and Nick. It's OK to Cry is about a couple who experience the untold heartache of not seeing their desires realized and who live to tell the tale, and rejoice in the Lord.'

"Obviously a book like this will contain a great deal of talk about feelings and emotions, but Malcolm and Nick always come back to God's Word and his faithfulnessas their anchor point..I found the book a compelling read...Thank you Malcolm and Nick, for not pretending to that you've got it it all figured out. or that it never hurts anyone. It's OK to Cry is a reminder that God's goodness and faithfulness does not depend on us getting what we want."
'This book is summed up for me in the words, 'I am classed by the medical profession as infertile, I am classed by society as childless, I am classed by God as a daughter - a son, an heir, precious, treasured, dearly loved.' Here is a moving and startlingly real account of one couple's struggle with deep pain and disappointment, and of the faith on which they draw to see them through. It is written for the sake of other couples like them and deserves to be widely recommended.'
