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

Many apologies for posting sooooo late this month. Afraid to say that we'll be late in December, too, because we are in the middle of moving once again! Arg :) In the meantime...

We have a lot of information and stories to share this month in our Loss Journal. Updates from MISS and Neo Fight. Info about National Children's Memorial Day events happening around the US. An interview with four moms about the loss of the children and their diagnosis of PCOS -- merely a coincidence? New Q&A from the Grief Journey discussion. And so much more.

Starting next month, December 2003, we'll have several new features in this Loss Journal. Because our Poetry Journal is shutting down, we'll be migrating the monthly Poetry Therapy column as well as the Mrs. Duck updates to the Loss Journal. I think the new content will only enhance the resources we are able to provide here.

As always, my heart to you as you pull yourselves thru the holiday season. I hope you are able to find some peace, stability, maybe even a tiny bit of joy?? Wish we could do so much more for each and every one of you!!!

Many thanks and many miracles to you,

Kara L.C. Jones, Dakota's Mommy
