One Woman’s Story: Loss, Healing and the Creative Process
Join the Pregnancy Loss Support Program and Alexis Marie as she shares her story and recent book, Expecting Sunshine: A Journey of Grief, Healing and Pregnancy After Loss.

Art was dangerous. Creativity set wild in me painful secrets best suffocated beneath the surface. If I surrendered myself unguarded to its process, I might have acknowledged the sharp regret that I did not die in Zachary’s place.
