"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

The book Mrs. Duck and The Woman is a story about losing a child and surviving the loss. When our baby Dakota died on March 11, 1999, after a full-term and perfectly healthy pregnancy, the doctors and nurses had only phone numbers of grief support groups to offer us. They had no tangible comfort to give. This book Mrs. Duck and The Woman is precisely that "something tangible" we hope to put into the hands of families who must face the death of a baby.

According to the CDC, 39,000 babies are born-still each year in the Unites States alone. This means 4.8 babies die this way each and every hour of each and every day here in the US. We believe Mrs. Duck and The Woman can help these 39,000 grieving familes each year. We hope that institutions & individuals like hospitals, birthing centers, midwives, doctors, funeral homes, and grief support organizations will help us provide the comfort and outreach that bereaved families need after the death of a child by providing copies of Mrs. Duck and The Woman through their work.

Artful, paperback copies of Mrs. Duck and The Woman are available from KotaPress directly at $5 per copy. Alternatively, we are glad to custom make copies for you that will include a printed ad showing your sponsored purchase of the book for $10 per copy. We'll make your sponsorship ad camera-ready free of charge.

We hope you will act today to begin providing support for bereaved families in your area. If we don't reach out to the 39,000 families per year who need this support, who will? We want to work with you to provide this tangible support to the people for whom you care. Contact us today with your order!
