Parenting Zine

Excerpt from Different Kind of Parenting:

"...be tender with yourself on those days when the cool weather and changing leaves make you sad. Pull on a warm sweater, make a cup of tea, sit in a comfortable chair, and look out the window-- be mindful of how bulbs planted in October turn into beautiful flowers in the Spring."

When you are the parent of a child who has died, traditional parenting magazines cease to be helpful. All the publications you might voraciously read while pregnant end up meaning nothing in the face of miscarrige, stillbirth, neonatal death, SIDS,fatal childhood diseases or other cause. For this reason, we at KotaPress now offer you an alternative resource in the form of a 'zine specifically written for parents enduring the death of a child.
