Every year, 26,000 babies are stillborn in America. In 2003, one of them was my son.

Ashes

My essay, "Ashes," is featured in this month's online literary journal r.kv.r.y.

Please check it out; I'd love to know what you think.

Heart-wrenching story with so many tragic parallels to my own.
Very well written, but that's what I've come to expect from reading your work.
Remembering Ben always.

So beautifully written and yet so sad. I didn't know my son had died either until they told me at the ultrasound. I asked over and over how it was possible that I didn't know. It's one of the things that bothers me the most.

It is coming up to my son's anniversary. It is so similar to your won...but we have no reason for what happened. I will never be the sme person again - and I just want to go back to that ime ...the time before...when I still believed in miracles and thought that things happened for a reason. Thank you for sharing. Remembering Ben and my son, Archie.
