Letter from the Editor, January 2003
By Kara L.C. Jones

Sorry we are posting a little late this month. The first article in this issue's table of contents gives you a little info about why we are posting late. Hope that what you do find here is helpful and supportive in some way.

This issue we have more quotes on grief compiled by Katie Smith, we've got poetry from several bereaved parents, a few informative articles, including a review of a book published for teen-aged parents whose babies have died, and more.

We are still hoping that more and more people will contribute to the Dictionary of Loss, so please be in touch with us if you have ideas you are willing to share for publication. We have several new additions to the Children's Memorial -- which pains me to have to add to it.

If you don't find what you need in this issue, go to the main Loss page (the one with the calendar buttons on it) and do a search of the site. If you still don't find what you need, try www.google.com. Or your doctor or midwife. Or a local support group. Or www.missfoundation.org. Just keep trying. You are not alone -- even though it may feel that way. I promise.
