My book about losing Riley

My name is Nikki Watkins. In August 2012 we were expecting the birth of our fourth daughter, Riley Elizabeth Watkins. However, our joy turned to sorrow when she was stillborn three weeks before our due date.  The days that followed were dark and painful. In order for me to heal, I was encouraged to journal. Now those journal entries have been transformed into a book that I have written which includes the journey of my family and other families who have walked down a similar path. It is my hope that this book would serve as a resource to other women who unfortunatly must walk down the same road of grief to give them hope that their joy will be restored one day. Your financial support is needed to help get this book edited and prepared for publishing. I appreciate all of your love and support! Know that you are paying it forward as this book will bring hope to many families. Thank you!
