Outdoor Wednesday: National Womens' Hospital

This is the first draft of my manuscript.

National Women's Hospital where Andrew was born.


Dear all,

I started a new site; http://annkitsuetchin.blogspot.com/.
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 http://annkschin.blogspot.com/ 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.

The first post is my synopsis.

Such a tragedy, I can't even imagine. But you are making some good come from it, by helping others, Ann. How exciting this is about to beome a reality! What will your new blog be? Will each post be part of the book? How often will you post? I am headed over there now, can't wait!

Ginny Hartzler said...

I will be praying about this. I thought that since you had an editor, the editor was working with a publishing company? If this is what you are meant to do, then it WILL happen. Thanks so much for linking me on your blog!

The loss of a child is a real tragedy and in Miri at the moment we have TWO mothers who have lost their daughters...If only they could read your book too!! I am sure it would help them.

I know my mum has never gotten over the loss of her son....and she still has so many unanswered questions...what if? Loss can be unbearable at time.

Yes...it takes real courage to share. A giant step.

I will definitely read it.

That must have been a terrible shock and tragedy. I think to write it down helps and is a good therapy. It also helps others who went through the same.

To lose a child is the worst thing that can happen ever! I think you are very brave indeed! I hope that you will find love, strength and understanding.
