    And having done some reading, I can relate to your daughter very fundamentally. I hope you and your husband don't blame yourselves for the way her life ended. As I stated above, there but for some very lucky breaks go I. I bid you peace.

      ... for your kind words. There is always guilt, but we work to move forward and make something of what is left of our lives. Telling Ashlie/Alice's story is a piece of that.

        I thought that making a child would have been the most irresponsible thing I could possibly do. So I don't really know the pain of losing a child but I can imagine it's very difficult. I too am working on a book that seems to grow with the telling. I also use it therapeutically. Maybe I should post chapters too.

        In all sincerity, thank you for this. Your story has had a much greater impact on me than most similar stories do. Maybe it's the way you tell it, maybe it's the parallels between your daughter's life and mine, maybe it's a combination of both. Either way, you've earned a reader and admirer. Goodnight.

          and for what it's worth, every voice that speaks out about the lives we live is so very important. Please let me know if you venture out publicly with the writing you do therapeutically.
