I have spent the last few days knee deep in editing. And chasing Bennett around. He is SO busy. Yesterday at the store the clerk said, "Is he always like this?" I was trying to pay and keep Bennett off the conveyor belt (those cart buckles are a joke). "Yes, he is. He's busy." I replied as I held Bennett down and shoved my debit card back into my wallet.
End of summer is still my goal for completion of the eBook. I think the editing portion is finished, but there are quite a few other things that have to be done before it is available. We're close, and I'm excited, though excitement feels like the wrong emotion. I am excited to share it, but I am not excited so many people need a resource like this.
The book is now eleven chapters (everything from saying goodbye (chapter one) to the postpartum period (chapter four) to a father's perspective on grief (chapter six)) and roughly thirty three pages.
I am trying to figure out how to get the book to people who need it. What did you do after your baby died? Did you go online right away? Did you seek out resources? How did you find Glow in the Woods, Faces of Loss and other support sites? I would like to make this available at hospitals, but I don't know how feasible that is.
Bennett is having a screaming fit, so I best end this and attend to him. Life as a nine month old is so hard.
