Judith Guggenheim, Co-author of Hello From Heaven! 

"Dreaming Kevin shows the power of the human spirit to persevere in the midst of grief and survive the death of a child. As her spiritual coach, Carla's son Kevin challenges her to face her fears and see beyond the illusion of his death as they journey together during dream time in search of the truth, that ultimately leads Carla to forgiveness and healing."

Sally Merrill Redfield, author of "Creating a Life of Joy"

"There is so little we know, but fortunately, in recent years we've learned that our loved ones who have died live on - in our hearts, our minds, our souls - and somehow their spirits live near us and love us still.  Dreaming Kevin is a touching story of one mother's continuing love and gentle communication with a very special child. This book is like walking into a warm hug."

Joy Johnson, Co-Founder, Centering Corp.

"Dreaming Kevin is a must read for anyone serious about doing grief work. Upon picking up the book, you soon realize how the Divine works in dreams and images that are calling us to greater depths about the true meaning of life. This book cannot be put down much less put back on the shelf. It remains in your heart forever. It is worth the risk of reading for it will change not only your belief about grief but will move your heart closer to the Divine."

Rev. Norman L. Bouchard, author 29 Questions for the Ordinary Life, Revealing the Profound Amidst the Ordinary, Minister, Center for Spiritual Living, Colorado Springs, CO

Carla has created a healing journey on paper. "Dreaming Kevin" gives us permission to think (and feel) outside of the box. Her strength and courage shine through her words and gives all of us reason to believe in that which we cannot explain. None of us want to be in Carla's shoes, but knowing there are gifts along the way makes it all a little more comprehensible. Thank you Carla, and Kevin, for sharing your wonderful story.

Sandy Goodman, author,  Love Never Dies: A Mother's Journey from Loss to Love

The death of a child releases an inexplicable grief that transcends human understanding. Dreaming Kevin captivates the readers on many levels: spiritual, biological, emotional, and psychological. The journey is in its true form, dark and abysmal at times, reflecting the experience of parental bereavement. This is a wonderful and enlightening book and I'd recommend it to not only those who have experienced the death of a child, but also those who work with or support others in that tragic situation.

"I know from my life and work of what Carla writes. I can see in the drawings of the people I work with what Carl Jung stated, "The future is unconsciously prepared long in advance and therefore can be guessed by clairvoyants." When we open our minds to the fact that consciousness is not limited to the body we can experience a very different experience. Communication then takes on a new form and time no longer exists. Dreams and images are some of the ways that this communication can occur. Read Dreaming Kevin and share the emotions and the wisdom that are present. It takes courage to learn from our afflictions and losses, but they are the greatest teachers. Read, learn and avoid having to become strong at the broken places.

Bernie Siegel, MD author Love, Medicine & Miracles and Prescriptions for Living.

Dreaming Kevin chronicles an extremely heart wrenching journey, and the honesty with which Carla Blowey faces her emotions is admirable. I could really feel her pain, and got as close as is possible, I think, to understanding what it is like to lose a child. The connections she makes between "dreaming" and "reality" is one that change the way people look at life!

 John Aherne, Senior Editor, Warner Books

"Dreaming Kevin is a must read for anyone experiencing loss in any form (almost all of us) as well as those who are counseling victims of loss. Through the eloquently descriptive passages of one experiencing the sudden death of a precious child emerges the salvation of forgiveness. Carla hides nothing of the intense feelings she had each day, but she also fully describes the guidance she received through dreams and people acting as angels. Their messages of eternal life and forgiveness was alternately overlooked, accepted, rejected, welcomed and finally blessed as an internal battle raged. Carla's intuition and Kevin's obvious foreknowledge has already blessed many and now it will touch others through this book. Keep the tissues handy and read it through to the end."

Harry McDonald, author Touched by Love, retired counselor and A Course in Miracles  practitioner.

Dreaming Kevin shows the power of the human spirit to persevere in the midst of grief and survive the death of a child. As her spiritual coach, Kevin, Carla's son, challenges her to face her fears and see beyond the illusion of his death as they journey together during dream time in search of truth, that ultimately leads Carla to forgiveness and healing.
