My son King Josiah Sims was the inspiration for writing this book, all the women and men that have lost an unborn child and/or children were my inspiration. I want them to know that I am praying for them, that I understand exactly what they are going through. That there is help for them and support groups for them. I wanted the extended family, friends, peers, church family, work family to know exactly what parents go through after the loss of a child. I wanted people to be educated to not isolate people that have lost a child but to embrace them and give them support of being there and listening to them. I wanted people to be inspired that life continues after a loss and miracles can and will take place. I experienced a successful, healthy, pregnancy and my Rainbow baby Anthony was born alive and well. I wanted people to be educated through my personal story to know that people are hurting and not just the parents who lose the child/children are affected but the immediate family and close friends as well. During the writing process I looked at pictures of my son that I had, poems that I wrote to my son and one my brother wrote for my son. I looked at ultrasound pictures for raw detail and to paint the best picture in my story so people could see and feel the very emotions I felt and experienced during the loss, after the loss, and pregnancy following the loss of my son King. I decided in writing this book that I wanted it to be personal and to have full creative control over everything from the cover to the content and how I would share it with the world, so I made the best choice and published my book as a self-published author.
