PostSubject: My writing experience   Tue Oct 11, 2011 9:09 am

Of all my writing experiences, the one article that has meant the most is the one I wrote for "Horizons," a publication of Regular Baptist Press.
In 1999, my husband and I went through the trial of having our second child diagnosed with a fatal "birth defect" at 19 weeks. We chose to carry her to her due date and she died when she was 14 hours old. Throughout the experience I kept thinking that our experience would be a good subject for RBP's annual Sanctity of Life issue in January. It's a publication I had grown up seeing. I wanted to use our grief to help others.
It took a few years to get the nerve to actually write the piece but I did it. To my very pleasant surprise, I got an e mail from the editor of the paper saying she was interested in the article. It was a 2 year process, but in January of 2006, "Numbered Hours" was published. I never got any feedback from RBP to see if it helped anyone, but I'm praying that it did.
