Throw back to 2011

This is the first draft of my manuscript.

National Women's Hospital where Andrew was born.

In 2011, I posted this.

Dear all,

I started a new site;
Here I figure my book. If you like to read, do pay it a visit and comment.

Diary of a Bereaved Mother
From the conception of my first blog I had shared with you about my late son Andrew.

In October 2010, fellow blogger Ginny inspired me to write my book about having Andrew. Since then, I had shared with Betsy and George. They have been pivotal in encouraging me.

The book is almost done, my editor suggested that I post some parts of it and I welcome your comments.

This book is not just a soppy and maudlin story of my tragic life. This is non fiction, and the genre is: Self Help/ death and dying/child’s death/survival

The book is my journey of having a baby who died in Auckland National Womens' Hospital and suggestions to help bereaved parents, their care givers and doctors.

It has been edited: It is a wonderful account, written from the heart.

Comment: I know that no words can adequately express sympathy for this tragedy. You must be a very brave woman to come through this ordeal and write about it.

My pastors wrote this introduction in my Forward: Ann’s account of losing her infant son Andrew will resonate with anyone who has had the misfortune to give birth to a child who has struggled to live. As pastors at Ann’s church and as bereaved parents ourselves we felt for Ann through these recordings of her journal.

Diary of a Bereaved Mother

The author is very brave to write this book. It has not been easy and she aims to touch,... read full description below.

Here's the book, five years after. It is used as a reference book for NICU personnel in University Hospital of Toronto, wonderful write ups from many newspaper, exhibited in England, and spoken off in Medical conference.

Writing the book was cathartic, it also gave me opportunities to talk to other bereaved mothers face-to-face and online.
