We wrote our stories in the hopes of offering companionship and peace to the next family on this journey.
After delivering Solomon still on March 8, 2000, I was overwhelmed with my feelings of grief. Group counseling leant a kernel of relief, but when group ended I found myself alone, unfocused and sad. I located the www.SPALS.com
website and joined immediately. I obsessed about becoming pregnant again. When my next pregnancy ended in miscarriage, I felt my life as a parent would never begin, that I would forever by a childless mother. A very long and mentally grueling eleven months later, my daughter Alison entered the world. Nineteen months after, my son Adam. Now a mother, stepmother and wife, I was busy running a household. I still felt clouded in sadness and decided to take action. Journeys: Stories of Pregnancy After Loss
is the result.
