about the contributor.
Megan is the wife to Ken and mother of five: 16 year old Troy and four who are only with us in Spirit - Brendan (stillborn 19/4/1999 - 20 weeks gestation); Cianan (stayed with us for us for 7 hours - 6/8/2000 - 22 weeks); Kavyn (stillborn 31/1/2002 - 23 weeks); Alex (stillborn 17/2/2005 - 21 weeks and 5 days). As Megan says, "Writing and art have helped me to traverse the journey that is grief. I have volunteered as a Peer support counsellor to other bereaved parents and facilitated grief writing workshops that I wrote and designed. I am in the process of developing this into an online workshop so that it is more accessible to those that need it. I blog at Four Ravens and  my former blog The Rose Garden has more of my poetry and writing."

  2. I hope it has arrived Amy - please let me know.
