Note to My Readers on Our Loss

solideogloriaOn Sunday, February 16th of this year, our granddaughter was stillborn three days before her due date.

I began an account of her birth almost immediately, but found I could only work on it for short periods of time. Grief must do its work and the writing, while cathartic, was painful. There is a fine line between conveying the truth of an experience like this with all of its deep emotion, and coming off as maudlin. Special thanks to my Writers Group, Janis Coverdale and Jeanette Breaux, for reading the story with such love and care, and helping shape and edit with such skill.

My purpose in writing our story was to honor the child we lost, to honor her magnificent parents, and to honor the Lord we trust. I will publish it tomorrow. It is long, but I hope you will read and, indeed, share it.

Soli Deo Gloria. All glory to God alone.
