I can not comment on your article. I can only express my sympathy.

Truly heartbreaking. No mother could read your entry without pain. I'm so sorry; thanks for sharing.

My apologies, I didn't intend to mislead you...I wrote this a fictional article, based on my experiences as an assistant to a midwife and alot of research on the emotional effects of stillbirth on the mothers. I hope to develope it further than this into a short story with a much more hopeful ending.--Miriam

Hi! Just a quick note. Authors are not supposed to comment on their pieces until results are announced (to preserve the anonymity of the challenge).

Fitting title that lead the reader into an honest look at loss of something greatly hoped for. I especially like your closing paragraph, it sums up the anguish of emotions very well.

Good writing- very "realistic" : )

I, too, thought you were being autobiographical... that being said, I agree with the comment that good writing feels "real". As a nurse, and as a mother, and as a grandmother, I understand the emotions of losing a child during childbirth. It is a pain like no other, and you captured it very well.

Thank you by the way for your kind words about my song.
