LifeCanada News: This is a newsletter put out by LifeCanada. I wrote a personal essay about my experience with receiving negative results during prenatal testing and choosing to keep a child with possible abnormalities rather than choosing to abort. It's a tough journey and nothing about it--from getting the tests to receiving negative results to choosing whether to end or continue a pregnancy--is easy. It's now available in the May/June issue.

Mom Writer's Literary Magazine: I am excited to announce my interview with Mary Rosenblum will be featured in the summer issue of this magazine. Mary is an incredibly talented writer and inspirational woman. Now others will be able to see why I believe so. Click here to read the interview on MWLM.

United Church Observer: Aside from the work I've done to bring awareness to SPD children and families, I have to say this project is one of my favorites. I wrote a personal essay for this magazine on the subject of my wonderful Godmother, Auntie Lois. She has helped to pull me through some rough patches in my life and taught me how to love myself. This is my tribute to her and the piece now available in the January/09 issue. This piece can also be read on a site called "Free Sermons and Worship." It's a great site for spiritual healing and guidance.
