Sierra's IF, Erika P.



Sierra's IF
Erika P.
Poetry and Graphic Design


about the piece.
In Erika's words, "Sierra's IF was actually my response to the Valentine's Day challenge, but I didn't finish it in time. The words and phrases (Sierra Rose, my girl, tiny, sweet, baby, missed,daughter, love, always, forever, and lost) are like the words that are on those little candy hearts for Valentine's Day, and around that time I was really struggling with what-ifs and guilt."

about the contributor.
Erika talks about her daughter, "Sierra Rose is my second child and first daughter.  She was born still on July 3rd, 2009, at 27 weeks and 5 days due to severe growth restriction and placental insufficiency." Erika blogs at Mountains of my Dreams.

Remembering Sierra and thinking of her family today on her first birthday.

  1. This is beautiful Erika. It would have been perfect for the Valentine's Day challenge but it is perfect for today too. Thinking of you and Sierra Rose, especially today.
