Letter from the Editor, November 2002
By Kara L.C. Jones

Well, we are again approaching the holidays. This is a complicated time of year for those of us who continue to grieve a loved one. It's my hope that you might find tools this issue to use as you move through the holidays, ask for support as you need it, and do the best you can to take care of yourself.

We have holiday coping ideas from several MISS facilitators, a memorial poem from Katie Smith, thoughts on subsequent pregnancy from Jen Mountney, a book review from Nancy Grayson, an announcement from Katie Hodge, information about Pregnancy & Infant Loss Conferences from Martha Weiss, and a review of the AMAZING "Gili's Book" by Henya Kagan (Klein). Don't forget to check out the Updates to learn how you can register for MISS Passages 2003.

And as always, feel free to be in touch with us to share your reactions, thoughts, ideas, anything! Take holidays one day at a time, just like the rest of the year. Take care of you!
