From the Back Cover
There is nothing in the world that affects us more than the death of a loved one, especially a child. Stephanie Cole found that out first hand when her unborn daughter died unexpectedly one week after her due date. Stephanie stumbled through the death of her daughter, using creative expression as a tool to navigate her way though the darkness. This book is a collection of the writings and artwork that she created in response to her loss.
"Still is the poignant exposition of the reality that besets more than 25,000 pregnant families each year in the US. Stephanie Cole's portrayal of the year following Madeline's death is vivid and stark, and speaks to the disbelief and emptiness of the 50% of parents who never discover why their unborn baby died. Stephanie's year deprived of an infant is illustrative of the challenge families and those who care for them face when experiencing the loss of an unborn child. Each child is a special chapter in every family's life, even if that chapter is but a few, heartbreaking pages of limited memories. Still is important reading for those who experience pregnancy loss. Perhaps it is more important reading for those who have not shared the experience but wish to understand."
Dr. John J. Botti, Maternal-Fetal Medicine
"Stephanie's honesty and candor are refreshing in a society that wants everything, even mourning, wrapped up in some sort of neat package. She allows us to walk her path with her, acknowledging that everyone's journey will be unique and that we will eventually accept what will become our new normal."
Beth Gauthier, Mother to Mark (stillborn, Feb 2007)
"Stephanie writes from a place of honesty and raw emotion. Throughout her writing she weaves the dreams she and her husband had for their precious daughter Madeline. Her words help the reader understand the depth of pain felt by parents who experience the death of a much loved and hoped for baby. A great read for any professional who wants to gain a better understanding of the emotions and feelings of a grieving parent."

I'm so glad I packed this book.
What you've done is more than brave - it has shown that we all have our own story to tell. And you told yours in the hopes that it brings some kind of comfort to another mother, facing the same nightmare that we all could never imagine living through - yet here I am. And here you are. And we are living through it.
Thank you Stephanie, for providing a wonderful resource, there really isn't much out there.
May God carry us all through our painful journey!
