“Forty-three years have passed since I birthed a stillborn daughter. The experience has been burnished in my soul morphing my being in a manner difficult to express. My poems are my gift to myself and my still daughter, those traveling the same path and others desiring insight into our world. According to the National Institute of Health, since 2003 stillbirths in the United States have remained at about 26,000 each year. This figure does not include loss from miscarriage and other causes of infant mortality. I offer my work as a means to reach out to others through Poetry. As stillbirth research expands through the March of Dimes and universities such as Brown through the U.S. Department of Health, support and organizations grow such as Angel Names Association to assist those that have been touched by stillbirth. My Poetry collection provides a compassionate comfort by offering my journey into the dark, still night where my daughter met me. We returned together.” – Author
“I just wanted to take a moment to reach out and let you know that your introduction reading was inspiring and beautiful. I felt the tears wanting to escape as you described a feeling so many women I have had the privilege to know have struggled with.” - Cindy Priest Entrekin, MA, LPC
