"April 2004"


11 x 11-1/2 inches


When I was 5 years old, my mother went through a tragic pregnancy. In her belly was my sister, to be named Amanda, who I longed for and dreamed of growing up with. She was still-born. Soon after my parents divorced. Throughout my life I wondered what day she was born. After a little research, in the spring of 2004 I finally discovered the exact date of her birth and this knowledge gave me a sense of peace. I lost my sister on April 16, 1975.
