Growing up in a rural part of Raleigh, North Carolina, Annah always knew she wanted to be a mom. After college, she moved to rural New York, married at age twenty-five, and soon thereafter conceived. On May 11, 1990, Annah's labor progressed exactly as all the books and doctors had said it would, but unexpected complications arose during delivery leading to the death of her son. Over the next six years, Annah would encounter two miscarriages, two complicated but successful pregnancies, a six-week psychiatric stay for severe depression, and then while pregnant with her youngest, she discovered that her husband and her best friend were having an affair.
Throughout each ordeal she grieved. She screamed those eternal questions, “Why me?” and “How am I going to survive?” Throughout her journey, one thing was apparent to Annah: there were numerous grief resources and outlets, but there were no tangible guides to help her once she decided, and then became determined, to celebrate her baby's life.
