This will be short.

Five months ago I wrote this entry where I asked the government of Newfoundland and Labrador to begin recognizing the life of children born still with a stillbirth certificate.

This week I got a call from Service NL and was told that systematic changes have taken place, all because of my letter. And on Wednesday I picked this up:


Thank you to Minister McGrath and Minister Crummell and especially to Ken Mullally at vital statistics for making this possible and helping to prevent families from jumping through hoops like I did at the hardest point in my life. I am so proud of my little Everlee for continuing to change the world. Her little life speaks volumes every day.

  1. Thank you Rhonda, I did not know about any of this, I guess I have some phone calls to make and Matthew will get “recognized” as well. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
