Hi everyone! We need all supporters of Naloxone access to make phone calls and send emails to the 3 sub-committee members who are looking at our bill in the Iowa State House. Please give them a call or send them an email telling them of your support for Naloxone access and a Good Samaritan Law. 

To Moms Who Have Lost A Child

An essay
by Angela Miller

I have to tell you this. You didn’t fail. Not even a little. You are not a horrible mother.

You didn’t choose this. You didn’t want this to happen. You didn’t do anything wrong. It just happened. To you. Despite your begging, pleading, praying, hoping against all hope that it would not. Even though everything within you was screaming, no no no no no no no no no no!!!!

God didn’t do this to you to punish you, smite you, or to “teach you a lesson”. That is not God’s way. You could not have prevented this if you: tried harder, prayed harder, or if you were a “better” person. Nor if you ate better, loved harder, yoga-ed more, did x, y, z to the nth degree or any other way your mind tries to fill-in-the-blank. You could not have prevented this even if you could have predicted the future like no one can.
