When it actually sunk into my head that I had lost my son in April 2010 one of the first things I did was hit google. I can't remember what exactly I typed in but I ended up finding this website, http://www.pregnancyloss.info/. It was a God send. I went through the whole site, each link, each story. I visited it several times a day. Through that site I found many others and was initiated into the world of bloggers.
Deanna Roy founded http://www.pregnancyloss.info/ after the loss of her son Casey. Since then she has been setting up an online supportive resource for other parents in grief. The site is broken down into several categories. There you can find links to resources on healing, grief, physical recovery, subsequent pregnancies and memorials.
Deanna has just published her first novel on the subject of baby loss. It is called "Baby Dust" and features five unique fictional stories. You can read Holly's review of the book here. Please check back for part two of the DBC review on "Baby Dust" to be posted October 15th.
Deanna has graciously offered a copy of the book to us to use for a giveaway. If you are a blogger and are interested in winning the book here is what we need from you:
Write a post on your blog about something you found helpful or enjoyed reading about on the site, http://www.pregnancyloss.info/. Comment here with the link to your post.
If you are not a blogger, send us an email about something you found helpful or enjoyed reading about on the site, http://www.pregnancyloss.info/. Comment here once the email has been sent. Send email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Deadline is October 14th. Winner will be drawn at random. We may publish your post or part of your post here on the DBC.
About this blog
The intent of this blog is to form an interactive community where parents of dead babies can come together and swap information, stories, tears, memories and encouragement. This is designed to be a neutral place. We are not religious nor are we anti-religious. Come as you are. You can sign the guest book, add your baby(ies) to the baby name memory list, review books on infant death, add warnings about movies and books that contain a dead baby, add your blog to our directory or a number of other things. Don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or would like to see something added to this blog. Rule One: be kind to each other. We're all in this together. We all suffer and miss our babies madly.
If you are new to blogging and would like to be featured please let us know! Looking for parents who are new to this community and are looking for some peer support.
