One Response to Mission Vision & Goals

  1. greetings from Ireland. i wonder might this resource that i produced be useful to your very useful webpage?

    abstract: we were told ten days before birth that our daughter was stillborn. the below link tells the story from the young siblings point-of-view. it is a video slide-show, illustrated by unsentimental biographical paintings and has a soundtrack.

    it is five minutes long. have a look when you have a spare moment.

    all the best
