Mackenzie Mae’s Story
Mackenzie Mae’s Story is a real story of fallible human dreams turned to tragedy in this fictitious novel based on a true story. Many families, substantially the moms, have experienced the reality of a pregnancy, child birth, or the expectation of a healthy baby gone terribly awry. This book captured how it was lived from the initial knowledge, “there were chromosome problems from the beginning,” to the hope, writing and healing to the end. As a registered nurse, the author reflected on stories during a profession in the neonatal intensive care unit as she spent stretches of time at medical appointments with her supportive husband and their unborn daughter Mackenzie.
