"I was very moved by Mrs. Duck; what a wonderful gift for not only grieving parents, but for ANYONE who's mourning a loss." -Rev. Joan M. McCabe

Mrs. Duck and The Woman is a story about the loss of a child and how to start over again after that loss. Through a dialogue between Mrs. Duck and Mrs. Woman, we find the beginning clues of how to start healing the grief.

These retail copies are available at only $5 per copy for anyone who has suffered a loss and is learning to live life after the death of a child. Each copy is artfully handmade with a vellum cover.

Please note: these retail copies are *not* for Sponsors. If you would like your ad printed inside each copy as we recommend for florists, hospitals, grief support centers, midwives, doctors, and other care givers, then please see the Sponsored Mrs. Duck and The Woman listing.

Mrs. Duck and The Woman

"Oh, but Mrs. Woman," the duck said,
"You can be with your child today."

"How?" asked the woman.

"Look around you, Mrs. Woman," said the duck.
"There is a whole world that needs love
and nurturing. Do that loving and nurturing
in the name of your child."
